Staring Through (Vodka Love Song)

Staring Through (Vodka Love Song), 2/3/2016, Deon Mumple

He liked wine a little,
Favorite colour was purple,
But wine never got quite close enough,
Sometimes it would be beer,
With dinner and good cheer,
But more often life was just rough,

It was an illusion,
Never cleared confusion,
But he liked staring through his shot glass
When his vodka filled it,
When life felt like straight shit
He liked to drink ’til it kicked his ass

Confusion never came from the bottles’ lips
He never took more than a couple sips,
Just drank until life’s pain would slightly fade,
And vodka never told him, “go away.”

Straight through, he saw clearly
Like water, severely
But never had clear vision. What to do?
Pour another shot,
Grateful for a lot,
But wishing for understanding, too…

He loved her dearly,
She loved, austerely,
As if he, at fault somehow, should make amends,
She pushed him away,
Almost every day,
The couch, dark, and vodka were his friends,

Although he knew it was only an illusion,
At least vodka never left him in seclusion,
He drank ’til wasted love’s pain’d slightly fade,
And vodka never told him, “go away.”

Rejection never came from the bottles’ lips
He never took more than a couple sips,
Just drank until he felt loved, or close to,
And vodka never told him what to do.

One thought on “Staring Through (Vodka Love Song)

  1. Thanks everybody. I was reading a friend’s post and conversations about tequila, that’s more a fun drink, and I like vodka and I’m no fun, so I figured I’d write a country song about that. I said “he” through the song but confession, “he” is sometimes “me.” Like you didn’t know that. It’s worked for a long time, but it does get tiresome sometimes. I bet everyone would say the same about their relationships. But just in case, does anyone have a perfect relationship with their significant other? (Other than your significant relationship with me, of course, ’cause, you know… 😉 )~DM
