Alcohol, I see you there.
I've known who you are
for a very long time.
Such as when I was a little girl.
I remember your temper.
Your accusations of hate.
The sloppy drooling mess you are.
You god fearing hypocrite.
The constant smell of you.
Repulsed me to no end.
I could never forget you.
How could you destroy my life?
What did I ever do to you ?
You destroy everybody and everything.
I know that glassy glare in your eyes.
Rude, dirty, remarks you make, even if they were true.
Listening in silence for your footsteps down the hall.
I remember everything about you.
I am repulsed by the very thought of you.
