The downside to drinking is sinking,
a depression of grey and black,
there are no leaves on the trees,
they lay dormant by the gutterside.

Kids laughter morphs into a migraine,
ive not heard a bird sing for years,
unmanaged debt haunts me,
a happy face eludes me at every turn

the pain is tearing at my soul,
water pertudes from everywhere,
except my eyes,
i fail to recognise the man looking at me,
as i walk past the mirror shop,

Deep guzzaling breaths.....then drink.
