My own therapist

Can I stop drinking,
from these days that seem longer.
Test will power to the limit,
then become much stronger.

Wish I can tell my family,
that I am bad,
I'm a drunk,
they'll never understand.

The feeling of being sober,
is worst then being alone.
Maybe I should die,
or stop being a moan.

I cannot leave my family,
so I keep breathing in this world that I walk through.
I'm lost in this mess,
with no one to talk too.

So until my last sunset,
that lays on my path,
this bliss I say goodbye to,
that I never loved.

    What a sad poem, old habits die hard, I know as I was a smoker. I hope this isn't about you my friend, but being as we write about what we know, maybe it is. Hugs to you, Elizabeth

    Hello Elizabeth, thank you for the read. This isn't about me, it's about the disease from which can control or consume you. Peace to you, Ryan.
