Drunk enough to believe anything

Drunk enough to believe anything

A Poem by god is not great, I am

Drinking,
for the first time in a long time, 
 yet it couldn’t feel more familiar. 
Throwing back beer, shot, bottle, at a time.
 I had no preference, and it hardly mattered.
 so long as it went down quicker than my ghosts could surface. 
When I drank, I drank with such urgency that it would seem I found it imperative to my survival.
 It was. 
Intoxication made relieving the burden of the unsettled mind attainable, if only temporarily. . For a short time I could shallow out,  and make light of the misery and sorrow nested inside all compartments of my mind. 
Now I would have the capacity to drown out the sickness that had been long drowning me. 
But, I would lose this fight,  in the same way I had countless times.
Still, it is nice to dream.

Captivating. So relatable. So melancholy. So beautifully you. I love the tragic hopelessness, the longing for an escape that will not come. Yet also the comfort & familiarity. It's like there is a dream of liberation, but a comfort in the pain, the resignation, the known territory that everything's still the same. Good. I like it here. Even as I hate. This is home. It's mine. I'm not going anywhere...

I know where you went to write this poem. I've been there more times than I'd like to think about (if I could even remember half of those times).

I Love Dark Poetry, when its done right...this is done right. I love the ending lines....

But, I would lose this fight/ in the same way I had countless times/
Still, it is nice to dream.

Its in that hopelessness, where dreams seems futile, yet an inkling of hope subsist. Excellent.

PoetTree, JUST ROCKS!

The inner struggle is apparent and yet sadly beautiful.
Nicely done...

well I could connect with this a bit, maybe not much as you could...but its relieving to let the mind stop thinking for sometime,for a night at least...the taste, the flavor doesn't matter and you meant so well when you said- "so long as it went down quicker than my ghosts could surface. "..this was a strong and powerful write

I like this very much. The speaker has no illusions, at least none I could detect.
