So Broken

This place we're at
Is as broken
As the currents
Of my wretched heart - soul
And whatever the hell else makes
Me who you think I am.

The walls bleed with Vodka and I want
It more and more and more and
When you look at me
I don't have to confess...
You already know
It's on my breath.

I wanted to sing you a song
Before we made love
But the drink carried me off and 
Me half alive on a dream
Across the world.

Hung over and torn with regret,
I shall look at you
And wish the pain of my
Beaten miserable past
Would abandon it's torment of 
Our future.

    Powerful writing... reminds me of a short story by Carson McCullers about alcoholism - '...and sorrow parallels desire in the immense complexity of love' - her last line. BRAVO Joseph! Best wishes, Keith
