In the pantheon of drunkards, the lewd and derogatory reign supreme. The cadence of inhibitions shed and how it betrays the guise of rationality is a curious sight to behold. Tonight, Valhalla is punctuated by loud bellows, guffaws, shouts exclaimed like bloodlust rearing venom on virgin nerves.
In the cusp of a new dawn, all sense seep through with every breaking. It all feels foreign now. And the excuse of being needed gets a tad too taxing.
If you squint your eyes, you see each soul wanting, to forget, to escape, to feel relevant once more. This haunt is a vice vineyard where the saddest of intent are sown, and nothing but wasted time is reaped.
I fail to see its charm now.
Held in dead to the world moments are an infestation of lies; where loose-lipped sentiments, slip-ups, empty assertions rule. I taste the stale and vapid come-ons, bitter and rancid as bile. And yet I smile – because it all feels juvenile.
Perhaps it’s maturity. Perhaps wisdom.
Perhaps I only like it when everyone is beneath me.
Perhaps alcohol is really made for the lonely.
And I no longer feel incomplete.
