6 Shots of Tequila

Original Poetry

6 shots of tequila
And I’m somewhere between
Couldn’t be more alive
And on the doorstep
Of death-
With the door open.
My mind is blank
Quite like the look
In my eyes,
It’s the best I could do.
I’m sorry,
But when you set
Someone alight,
Do you stay behind
To douse the flames?
Let me set my soul
On fire.
Do not come back for
Its ashes.
