Her Name was Jackie Lynn

That girl was a rough in the diamonds 
with a past like mine. We each had 
half an addict's mind 
and a liver like tempered glass. 
She was beautifully marred and scarred 
in patterns like mine, 
caused by overdoses of love- 
200 proof. I drank love straight, 
straight from the bottle 
and unlike me she mixed hers 
with ignorance to mask the burn. 
I wanted to love her. I had 
everything she needed; more 
passion than she could handle 
but I had that for any girl. If any girl 
ever wanted it, but she wanted me 
demon free and my demons, to me,  
are too perfect to leave.
