I Am Alcoholic

I Am Alcoholic
       Unable 
to regulate my soul 
   my thoughts 
    are doomed
           IT
Defeated my entity 
dictated my pleasure's 
I am Alcoholic
I sense it's tantrum 
  everywhere 
I am helpless
  Constantly 
 yesterday today 
     NOW
 Tomorrow
  Anyone 
help me? 

Alcohol
My unique enemy 
haunted since years
     Deserted 
by my Mother
    IT
 Dominated 
my shadow 
conditioned 
my brain
Provoked 
my tears 
drowned 
my vitality 
allowing 
it torment 
my darkness 
dictated my pain
Captivated
    ME
Consciously.

I was born
Unwanted
with a heart
I cannot find it 
how weak have 
I gone down
 The ladder
How desperate 
have I allowed 
        IT
 Be taken 
for granted 
  by a bottle
       NO
    Bottles
 I became 
so wounded
Giving up 
my strength
My life
To a glass. 
Why?
Mother.

    I have a family member who is struggling with that addiction. I admit there are times her behavior test my patience this a reminder of the pain the alcoholic is feeling and the hopelessness and helplessness as well. Thank you for sharing this.

    Hi Lori, I am sure you felt yourself this poem, it is so hard to live with someone unpredictable due to addiction. Think of yourself first, don't let anyone take you down. Bless u Terry

    The effects of any addiction is horrible for the person who is addicted and those that touch on that person..I have seen that first hand..There are people who are born everyday with the genetic dispositon to become an addict because it is in their genes..The way to avoid the addiction is know oneself and seek out professionals to help with the problem..Enjoyed reading this one and your point of view about your family member who has a problem or was it had..Sara

    I know this pain! You must be strong and you can be strong. This may sound silly but I gave up drinking and later cigarettes Because It dawned on me one day I was making People rich while they were killing me and helping me destroy everything I loved . It's never easy but the thought that people were getting rich on my misery really made me angry. Fight on again and again never surrender!

    You are so right, I never saw it that way, as I smoke, I will try and imitate you by making them become poor, and for me I will become healthier. Excellent advice Michael. thank you so much. Have a great happy evening. Love Terry

    Hi Terry; This touches close to home. There was about three people in my family that were Alcoholics. One died and two got cured. Thank God for A.A. Lucilla

    So sorry Russell to read that, I did not want to make that poem very strong. But unfortunately it does hurt those who are on the outside. Take care, hope she does.
