The liquid is smooth, warming,

Makes me think of damp cellars

Walls stacked with wine on racks

And sobbing, scratching, screaming

Coming from behind a wall

I smile

Drink

Read

Enjoy the darkness that hangs in the air

Brooding, gothic

Surrounding me with and embrace as warm as any lovers

All that is missing is the kiss 

I close my eyes, familiar repose

Drink

Smile 

Feel the book beneath my fingers 

With words so haunting and beguiling 

One cannot help 

But drink some more

And keep on smiling
