For him in the past and the future

by Emma Fernandez

He likes to drown his demons  
They never see the light  
Uses beer to blur their vision  
Then too, he’ll lose his sight  

How long can this dynamic last 
Before they prove their power 
Will he keep downing, drowning pain 
Until his final hour  

He’s charismatic, charming  
Ireland pulses through his veins  
And who’s he really harming  
If he forgets his own first name    

I’ll miss him ‘til forever  
For his call I’ll sit and wait  
Love’s too much of an endeavour  
I just want to be his mate
