Favorite Quote:
With a little love, And some tenderness, We'll walk upon the water, We'll rise above the mess.

I want to drink.
Its sitting right there.
Taunting me, Calling me.

It would be so easy to take a couple sips
And a couple sips is all I need
To feel it.

Should I drink?
Or remain strong?
I’m not strong.
I’m weak.
Can I go a day sober?
I’m pathetic.
I need it.

I want that warm feeling
The burn as it goes down.

Ill feel so much better.
I cant stop thinking about it.

And I give in.
I feel the fire in the pit of my stomach.
Warm and comforting.

This poem is really choppy because thats what my thoughts felt like going thorugh my head. Im dealing with alcaholism and currently trying to get better, but sometimes its really hard.
