    When All Is Gone I found the absent-mind of god

    My glass of vodka sits on my desk just staring

    at me. I smile as I pick it up and take a huge gulp. It hits me fast and goes straight to my head. I feel numb, just what I was going for. I barely can feel her presence anymore. Her memory is starting to slip away as I smile bigger and relax in my desk chair. The pain that she...
