Vices

A Poem by Indoor Downpours


I'm staring at the face in the mirror
Glossy tears roll down the glass
I'm shrouded in smoke, and I'm drowning in alcohol
Embodying the only vices that bring comfort to my soul 
And you're laying in his bed
He's helping you take off your dress
Light the candles and close the blinds
You're all alone. 
All this time I thought I knew you well
But I guess it seems I don't know you at all
It's not like you to make love out of your lies
I've got nothing left to say but "Go to Hell."
And I'll keep everything inside
And you'll go chasing hearts at night
And we'll both find ourselves alone, 
And we're too stubborn to even cry
So I'm downing every pill I find
All the better if it keeps you out of mind
Yeah, I'll be fine.
I love you until the Earth forgets to spin. 
And I'll lie to us both, and say I hate you in the end. 
And when I do, I think of how this could've been different. 
But we won't ever change, and I won't ever trust again. 
I'm staring at the moonlit night, 
Counting stars above the city lights
And I wish that you would say goodbye again
So that maybe you would change your mind. 
But you love wearing shades at night
You don't see anything above the sky
Just the painted yellow lines 
Along the road that you'd leave behind
And I'll keep everything inside
And you'll go chasing hearts at night
And we'll both find ourselves alone, 
And we're too stubborn to even cry
So I'm downing every pill I find
All the better if it keeps you out of mind
Yeah, I'll be fine.
