Into The Bottle

Unbearable pain
Running full throttle
To ease my discomfort
I dive into the bottle

When life is too much
When I can’t find my zen
I willingly descend
Into the bottle again

When reality sucks
No help from friends
I need to escape
Into the bottle again

Can’t handle the pressure
This life I abhor
I need a release
Into the bottle once more

Sinking deeper
Not sure how to get through
No other options
Into the bottle anew

Gripping despair
Bitter suffocation
Life-ending consequences
Eternal damnation

Footnote: No, I have not started drinking again.

  4. I remember when you wrote this. Was way into my problem and worried about you. Glad you aren’t drinking. Neither am I (again).

    Oh wow. Seriously I was reading with a sinking heart thinking you’d had a huge binge weekend. I’m so relieved to read that you didn’t. Awesome poetry though. Seriously dude.

  10. The saddest thing about using alcohol to numb out depression? Alcohol is a super-potent depressant drug. Holy vicious cycle, Batman!
    Glad to hear you’re okay. 🙂
