A great poem I would like to give recognition to-


Blog Posted:7/17/2010 2:47:00 AM
This poem won 2nd place in my most recent contest.
She has barely gotten any notice. I would just like some
comments on what you all think of this new talent.

Alcoholic's Suicide by Emily Humphrey

He sits there with a beer in his hand…
With residue from his last line on his nose.
No lights on in the house,
Because he’s always home alone.

To drunk to get up he urinates on himself.
But he can still get another beer.
He sits down and starts to cry.
He wonders why his family isn’t here.

He’s hung up on the past.
Things that could have been…
But right now he sits alone,
And he’s slowly dying.

He doesn’t even care about his daughter.
Who tries to stop him from drinking.
She cries and begs him to stop.
She sees him slowly sinking.

Soon he’ll lose his family…
Or more likely he’ll die.
It’s truly difficult to watch…
My daddy kill himself one beer at a time.

    wow no one has ever taking notice in my darker poetry like this it's makes me know that it's okay to write things that people don't want to talk about. I knoe that every poem can't be a rainbow and a smile thats all poeple ever cared about... Thank you Amy for noticing me and allowing my victory and to interducing me into the poetrysoup world:)

    Hi Amy :) Sorry I haven't really been able to check the contest page winners lately--Thanks for spotlighting this moving poem-- I'll make sure to drop by her write :)-- I think she does deserve more recognition for this write of hers, especially since it also sheds light to alcoholics... thanks--kudos to you btw for her 2nd place for this-- nikko :)

    This is a sad and painful truth more and more now. We had more than our share of alcoholics on both sides of my family. I lost 2 of my favorite uncles too young because of alcohol. My grandmother used to always say everytime that we rode by the ABC store that they should bum it all as she said. Jerri

    My family has had to deal with this and the sober members found they couldn't so they just stay far away from the "sick" ones...I think in line 5 Emily you want "too" Light & Love
