Words were spinning in my head 

Voices opinions the lot 

By the time I'd figured what to say 

I'd already forgot

The ice was spinning round the glass 

Dissolving into the gin

Internally planning this move until I could no longer keep it in


A text I'd been wanting to send for a while 

I'd write it and then I'd delete it

I changed it like a million times 

Erased and then I'd repeat it 


Over thinking room spinning 

You guessed it

I text it

Did I send it?

Nar i couldn't  .no credit

I Just left it

“I’d already forgot”. It only gets worse, Sarah Louise.
