Whiskey Nights

Whiskey Nights

A Poem by LivingDeath

I shoot the whiskey back
to dull the pains I get,
one shot to remember
another to forget.

Another bottle empty
another tear hits ground,
when I think I see you here
it only lets me down.

Memories are all I have
from all those months ago,
my feelings are my own
ones I'm not afraid to show.

I call your name each night
though I know you can't hear me,
still I sing the songs I wrote
and let myself cry free.

I shoot the whiskey back
to dull the pains I get,
One shot to remember
another to forget.

Interesting.... I have one similar to this. Whiskey is like a security blanket. It's warm and inviting. The last lines are powerful.

I dont' drink but I can relate to this poem as well. I don't know what else to say. I want to forget one minute but want to remember the next.

I have mixed emotions about this piece. I loved the first (and hence, the last) verse of it... but the middle is just such a common place that it's almost cliche. So... hooray for that opening part... nnnnot that much for the middle one.

Oh wow, this is amazing!
I love the repetition of "One shot to remember/another to forget" that is just wonderful! That's exactly how it is! I've had nights like that myself.
The whole thing just flowed wonderfully~
Great job!

This sounds almost like a sound, very catchy and nice rhym. Drinking to ease the pain is such a sad way to forget. Great job.

""I shoot the whiskey back
to dull the pains I get,
one shot to remember
another to forget."
