For My Sister, Who Got Out Of A Wrong Way To Love

I wrote this for my sister, who was in a relationship that completely took her from me and the rest of the world. She was going down the wrong path but she got out and serviced a dark place where alcohol became her only friend.

I never knew emptiness
Can be so heavy
A desire to quench a thirst
Famished for a better life
Instead I emerged into a bottle of liquor
Till there's no end in sight
Trying to drawn out my pain

Instead, I endure a emotional drowning

Who knew that Love
Would of hurt so bad
Can make you feel so happy
Then yet so sad
And at times a total silence
Can scream so loud
Still you feel alone
Even in a crowd

I never much thought
What the feature held for me
As I was Blinded from this "lust"
Then hurt with reality
I wanted to blame him
Yet, he insist that it was me

I was a victim of his system,
But now it's time that I
break FREE
