Again and Again: Until I'm Dead

Object of mass destruction: 
Myself and nothing more. 
I drink until bottom is up and 
I can't even see the floor.
I stagger out to my empty car and
Fumble with the door. 
If I make it home tonight, 
I don't even care anymore.
My vision is blurred.
My mind is heavily stirred.
I drink to blot out the pain, but
I really only hurt worse.
I know I hurt others 
When i do what i do.
All the stories I've been told;
All the feelings I've heard.
Thoughts swirl in my head.
I try to push them back but
They come again and again.
I stumble when I walk;
I swerve when I drive.
I can't count the people 
I may have killed in my drunken life.
Though it's really two steps backward,
I push myself ahead:
Drink after drink, 
Tripping and falling, 
Rushing and stalling.
"I'll be fine; I'm ok",
I've always said.
Thoughts swirl in my head.
I try to push them back but 
They come again and again.
Then I black out and 
Now I'm dead.
I drink until bottom is up and
I can't even see the floor.
Object of mass destruction:
Myself and nothing more.
