I drank and used to hide from many different emotions. My addiction provided me with a false sense of happiness and a relief from any negative feelings. But slowly I realized that what I was doing was just covering up these emotions and not taking them away. No matter how hard I tried to forget those feelings, no matter how much I used or drank, they were still present. 

Each day I wake up 

And put on my disguise

Walk around with a fake smile

That never meets my eyes

Hoping one day 

Everything will be fine

So I can be done

Living this lie.
