    Deeply expressed Laura. Emotions broken down perfectly. Enjoyable overall. Check out some of mine. Peace.

    Laura, something strikes me rather odd, after reading your poem.. I know that verse from Johnny Cash, pretty well.... Hurt and inflicting life with pain does no good... However you write so well... and I am a crazy chick.. and so love love this line... ""I was awake in this stupor on the kitchen floor Tired, naked, writhing in vomit"" <---wow.. CALL ME CRAZY... that line inhibits pretty much hate, plus I am one who strays away from the peeps out here.. Okay I'm venting now! Got to go... xox~PD

    Dear Laura - Have we met? "I was bent on worshiping this feeling be cause rain falls and cools the anger Just as sorrow freezes the spirits" is another gem of poetry. The bathroom floor, the kitchen - one as cold as the other. bravo love, Kathy

    Wow, Laura what a deep emotional bar this is. Very well written a visual wake up of the raw realness of such a harsh disease that plagues so many. Excellent write,,,tyfs Cherie<3

    “I focus on the pain…the only thing that’s real...” the man in black. What insight to an alcoholics disease. I have fought it for years. This poem is brutal yet gives one hope. Thank you my friend. ~Kilmer

    Clever and witty title, not to mention the contents. Cheers to your eloquence, Laura. By the by, my poem along same lines is called "On the rocks". Mine is not nearly as well-written as yours, but I think it may be worth a chuckle. How have I missed you before, eloquent poetess? I'll be sure to read more of yours in the coming week. Great writing which I enjoyed, Laura. Licia :-)

    Vicious, fierce, & unbridled. There has to come a point when the heart (and I know I've said this before) has to go up. Fantastic writing. A good song this reminds me of: Rise Against - Whereabouts Unknown

    Awww, Jay. You are such a beautiful poet. Lessons learned. True happenings and true feelings make true poetry anyhow. ~Laura

    Excellent, Laura...(I almost want to say: "Cheers!" Would that be inappropriate?) Fools returning to their follies...I am one of those indeed.
