swallow, sniff, inhale, exhale

thoughts slipping, judgement sinking, vision fading

vomit, sneeze, cough, weeze

regrets forming, truth exposing, hearts breaking

apology, tears, promises, truth

action taking, hard working, trust forming

sin, slip, fall, break

lies spilling, soberness shattering, body wrenching

further, deeper, faster, harder

knees buckling, hands shaking, mind spinning

swallow, sniff, inhale, exhale

family forgetting, values ripping, addiction breeding

heartache, hypocrite, broken, failure.
