AFTER

Standard

She lost and loved and loved and lost
Before she loved The One
And then she loved a little more
To make a more expensive cost
Before she would be gone

She drank and drank and then she drank
Before she drank some more
And then she had a drink or two
To make the dark more dark and dank
Before she hit the floor

She slept and slept and then she slept
Before she slept so deep
And then she slept a day or two
To make awake be from her kept
Before she slept a week

She died so slowly from the wine
Before we knew what for
And then she left us with herself
To make reminders of the time
Before, before, before.
