One More DrinkA Poem by emma
Just one swig, just one sip,
One more feel of glass on lip.
Slosh it down, drink it up,
Drain all the beer in that cup.
Dear friend, why don’t you just stop?
Release the drink, let it drop.
Why must you torture yourself so?
Can’t you just let her go?
Her hair, her eyes, her laugh, her smile,
All parts of her he hasn’t seen in a while.
Lives change, but memories don’t,
You can try to forget, but you won’t.
She’s moved on, she’s long gone,
She’s no longer someone to dwell on.
She’s happy without you, friend,
For you two, this is the end.
Loved her then, loves her still,
She’s left a void he can’t fill.
So he’ll take another drink, another sip,
It’s just the pain he wants to skip.
You’ll try and keep her out,
Try and live without.
Drown your misery with a drink,
Block out the time to think.
But it won’t stop, it won’t end,
You can’t even stop and pretend.
This has gotten too big, too grand,
She’s become too big a demand.
