Withdrawal

After the drugs come out

After the booze dries up

After the smoke clears

The feelings come up

The emotions come in

All that’s been buried

All that’s been hidden

All that’s been ignored, buried and drowned

Comes up to the surface

The pain must be faced

The feelings must be felt

They can’t hurt you

It’s ok

It’s ok to feel abandoned 

Insecure and alone

We must feel those feelings 

In order to grow

Just let them come up

Rise to the surface and release

We can only ignore them so long

Before we finally seek peace
