a dreamy night

a dreamy night

I remember the nights beginning
a smooth taste
strong nightcap
to take the edge off

a sip of the joy juice
bitter on the tongue
takes the pain by the throat
kept at bay until morning

there's a lot to talk about
not much remembered
abundance of hearty laughter
over everything said and done

I awake at dawn
measuring foggy thoughts
peering through cloudy scenes
from the night before

Editing stage: 


A good theme and well written the only word that came out was (kepted)
where (Kept) was adequate I think we are getting to close to Tex ting talk sometimes lol, take care of you, Yours Ian

There are a million reasons to believe in yourself,
So find more reasons to believe in others..

I meant to take ed out and forgot
Appreciate the e read and suggestion
