I took it, it took another which took more

It was always the same as it was before


It was often too many but never enough

It usually started out smooth but ended up rough


It remained consistent no matter what it was

It needed no reason it was just because


It was always the answer to every question

It was the cause and relief of all my frustration


It often showed up without any warning

It left me bereft of myself in the morning


It always had a suitable replacement

It always knew what that look on my face meant


It was most every problem’s only solution

It was a damnation disguised as salvation


It will always be there in the back of my mind

But it has since been replaced with a sense of sublime
