Poetry: Guilty Hero

I wrote this for a friend of mine; it was inspired by a story she is writing, and I thought that maybe it would help boost her creative energy to write some more on the story. – Dani

Guilty Hero

Just one more sip from the bottle
One more excuse to chase the pain
With the tonic of my salvation
The deliverer from this cage

When I deaden all my senses
The world feels less cold
And the embers of my life
No more blaze a fiery gold

Someday I’ll take that hand
And let it guide me away
From the hell formed in salvation
Away from my early grave

Just one more sip from the bottle
No more strength left to fight
With the tonic of my salvation
A woman bathed in light
