The escape

The escape

A Poem by EileenMarie
"

Drinking to escape the pain

"
The golden bottle stared back at me
An answer to my misery
One sip and I would relax
He couldn't bother me
All tension was gone
My mind was numb
Body calm
Feeling
Peace

This was good. A lot said in so few words, and something I'm sure more than one of us can relate too.
I will definitely have to read more.

you are welcome
I know this feeling exactly, looking at something like that thinking that it is an escape. And most of the time it very well may be the only escape but have hope and you can find peace in other things, i really love this poem and i hope you find that something some day.
