Absolut Proof

I stayed with you
back then
for how you made me feel
it had nothing to do
with how I felt about you
My only infatuation
was with youth
and that single desire
to drown in music
experience every vodka soaked moment
of darkened bars, nightclubs and bedrooms
in glorious technicolour
Absolut proof
that there was more to this life
than terraced beginnings
illigitimate accidents
and live-in-sin endings
