I feel alone

I feel alone

A Poem by lawrence bear
"

life repeats a familiar tune

"


I feel alone,

like the fading moon.

Whispers in the wind,

repeats a familiar tune.

 

The bottle,

calls to those it pleases.

Tempting me,

So much it teases.

 

I feel alone


My body,

How much it shakes.

My world,

How much it quakes.

 

I feel alone


Give in,

It cries.

You need me,

It lies.

  

I feel alone


I am weak,

my life it gambles.

One beer equals,

my life in shambles.


I feel alone,

like the fading moon.

Whispers in the wind,

repeats a familiar tune.


I feel alone

whispers

a familiar tune.


I feel alone,

reaching

I give in all too soon


The bottle,

my world

The gamble.


I feel alone

Addiction takes us to these depths of deception in our souls that no one could ever understand..that hasn't experienced it..
As I read this all I could think of is the power that this poem gives that bottle.. as it invites and taunts..and yet the feeling of walking away gives us that same power in threefold..
I will gamble to say...that you are not as alone as you think and...this moment is just that and will pass.. xo

Beautifully put and well described. Your usage of words is amazing and allowed me to use my imagination and even think. Think about being in these very same situations, my feelings etc. Again, I commend and respect you for this wonderful piece! One of my best reads of the week

Oh my......this is raw and powerful. Having been married to an alchoholic for years (he is dry now) I know the powerful pull of the bottle. I like how you also used the word "gamble" to describe drinking again, for that too, can be a powerful addiction.
Thanks for sharing!

This poem is powerful, addiction is a two headed serpent that alone no man can tame. You have done an amazing job I loved it and it drew me right in.

This is really good, very powerful. How our addictions call to us, like sirens. They are so so hard to resist. I really enjoyed this poem!

A powerful poem. When we have only one friend. The bottle. Can become a lonely world. I like the emotion of each set of lines giving the poem strength and meaning. Thank you for sharing the excellent poem.
