shiver me timbers
boyos
it seems like
my bones 
have piqued
your interest
the yellowing
of time,
you ask?
well,
i lived
and i 
died
like
all of you.
i swigged
bottles of 
root beer
which soon
turned to
whiskey
laced with
seasalt
as 
my crew 
and i 
sailed
the blue
heavens
dressed
in the
filthiest
of riches
a case of
consumption
that was my end
rolled up in 
a ratted sail 
and set next to
davy jones'
locker
i wouldn't have it
any other
way.

    "bottles of

    That description is pure beauty. Of all the lines, this one really jumped out at me because it's just so I don't know true?? Like I envisioned some lines from a book where someone ditched soda for alcohol.
    Replying: Gosh, you're so freaking supportive and motivational. I'm moved to puke up rainbows (even if that sounds disgusting lol). Also, I really felt that reply. I don't experience half the things I write about, but I write like I'm an expert on the topic.
