Dusting Off Dreams – Sober – Wattpad

A man lifts his head, a puddle of drool spreads the floor.
Piss wets his jeans.
A cigarette burn blackens the corner of the couch.
The woman he used to know up and left him
The wall clock hasn’t changed in days.
The daughter he loved died overseas, fighting for oil.
The DNA test confirmed the kid wasn’t his, and after 23 years of her calling him Dad, even a glass of water makes him drunk, taking pride in the girl he raised.
