see me. feel me. love me.

by Leah Laiben

i can see you through
the bottom of this empty bottle;
distorted, empty, needing more.

i can feel you
at the end of this needle;
warm, happy, feeling less pain.

i can hear you at
the end of this song;
distant, heartache, fear of your own,

i can love you
at the end of this lifetime;
no bottle, no needle, no music
to blame.
