How could you?
Do you like drowning your sorrows in the flat beer?
Night after endless nightÖ

Itís not therapy,
Itís a vice.
An addiction.

The stench of stale cigarettes.
The stumbling in at all hours of the night.
Is this how you want to be remembered?

Time to grow up now.
Take responsibility
I donít want to live like this anymore.

Iím tired.
Suffering for you.
Your addiction.

Youíd never know.
I can keep secrets too.
The tears only fall behind the locks.
Youíre beating me mentally to the point where I canít take it anymore.
Itís your loss,
Your addiction.

Mariah, I wish I could reach out with a magic wand and change him for you, but I cannot. The addiction is deep and long lasting; sometimes for a life time. I was 50 when I kicked it. To wait around and expect him to change will most likely be futile. Alcoholics usually have to hit bottom, and he may drag you down with him. I know you well. Remember, you let me use your picture on one of my poems? And I know how your Mother Susan must feel also. Hugs and Love, yours in friendship. Bill Murray

Oh My baby Girl...

Memories. I am so happy to fly free of those burdens we suffered with him.

He will lose in the long run. You need to fly free of the nest. Let him go to the fodder fields of addiction. He's alone.

I love you.
