Alcoholism

It’s never crystal clear anymore
Not hiding in that curved little 
glass shelter
Not since you took that as your 
escape route
Just because it got tough to 
keep it together
Thinking you could drop the 
precious things
Just drowning, falling, into the 
icy liquid burn
Lasting long enough to keep 
you in the dark
Never giving you the guts to 
change anything
Living in your own little 
heavenly hell
Treating it like your ticket 
through the exit
When all this ever is, is just 
your cowardice
Too afraid to just stop 
pretending

    And a doorway for demons to get in. Well that's my point view. Educational words my friend. Peace and blessings.
