Fire And Wine

the night should burn

with fire and wine

it should make you feel as if there’s

nothing left to fear

the future shouldn’t exist

cigarettes and soon to be forgotten words

spluttering from your brash mouth

lights and bodies glowing

alcohol flowing

without end

this is the magic hour

when all is within your grasp

room spinning

sex, lust and a

myriad dazzling faces

lulling like pretty wallpaper

begging for you to do

all that you want

leave the rest for tomorrow

the hangover will be dreadful

and you’ll regret every

damned thing

but tonight

tonight is all that matters

give yourself to it

lose your inhibitions

escape into sweet oblivion and

become a moment outside of time and space

fire, wine
