Addicted

alcoholic1

 

i woke up one morning
no longer in control
of my own life

i could not leave the bed
without swallowing a swig
couldn’t work for an hour
without stealing a sip

then i chanced on the brewers
waxing lyrical about how they
were connecting the world
yet their concoction left
my body more disconnected from my soul
my eyes more disconnected from my world
my goals more disconnected from my reality

someone tell the brewers I’ve had enough
another bottle will send me to a world unknown
and is there even rehab
for people like me?
