Sobriety

When I drank and smoked and did a line

Or ten

Then

I had the edge

The dazzle

The shine

The thing men wanted

Now I'm still and quiet

I like a cup of tea

I seek peace and tranquility

I seek kindness and loyalty

Men don't want that

They don't want that part of me

Do I lose my sobriety

To gain companionship

Do I lose me

To gain

You?
