Another You

Every time I see you
You give me a different reason 
For having another drink

At least you still feel
Like you need to give me a reason

It gives me hope
That even though this is the only way I know you
You are someone different in your own eyes

There is another you

A you I might not have known
Able to cope

Someone only you remember 
And aspire to be again

Even if it is only for the moment 
Just before you put the styrofoam cup to your cracked smeared red lips
