Alcohism is a terrible mistress



Tonight was the night I waited
To see how much I counted
Tonight I found out I didnít
Or not as I was hoping

I longed to hear your voice
Sing to me on the wind
I longed to feel your warmth
Inside my head, inside my heart.

Your warmth never came
Instead all I got was cold.
I guess her warmer liquid love
Meant much, much, more to you

I know she keeps you warm
And daily you hold her close
In your hand you touch/caress her
Then inhale her into your heart

Her warmth has made you cry
But you still want her amber joy
Her love has made you sick
And still you need her comfort

I needed your warmth as well
You deny my due, deny your heat!
I live alone in comfortless cold?
While you hold her so intimate?

Oh that glass bottle is a tease
Gives you false security and hope
I offered much, much more
But abandoned am I!

Maybe some day you will know
Just what you were throwing away
So that liquid love can possess you
A love thatís death one fifth
At a time.

Ah, yes, sweet liquid drops of the stuff which allows a person to believe that he/she can whip the whole world into shape in the beginning. Alas, and drat, in the end it is the bottle which sucks what it leaves of the poor soul into the empty bottle. Excellent portrait of one crushed under the weight of the bottle.

Alcoholism must be the theme today, this is the second one that I've read and might I add a very good one. Alan and I are 12 steeping. :) I hope you were sitting down for that one. LOL TY for the gift, it is lovely and creative, I'll drop a line soon.

Love & Hugs, Janet & Alan xoxoxo
