Sleep It Off

To wake with the taste of sleeping pills in your mouth
better than waking without memories of the night before
Your eyes still heavy
feeling you haven’t slept a wink
The headache you brought to bed
has stuck around till morning
has followed you each and every day
and calls you by your first name
as she has taken your last
Sleep it off forever
