past life experience

I drank once, it was all I had and all I knew. Those years are gone now and I'd like to say the memories linger, that one moment was savored over all else but I can't because it simply would not be true . I could say a last kiss when I was drunk and angry still somehow remains. Your voice tinged with pain reminding me what I had chosen to forget. Kissing you in the doorway of the kitchen like a thousand kisses before that now are all but lost. Walking down east broadway with the moon my only companion on my way back home to Riverside. The ending of another night so soft under the moonglow. But it wasn't like the nights before, we talked of children and inside I laughed. A junkie and a drunk raising a family on the outskirts of a doomed tomorrow. I drank once, it was all I had and all I knew.
