A Poem by Emily Dickinson Jr.

A poem about the tragedy alchohol can rein on your life. How blinding it can be and how people can't coddle your addiction forever. Something has to give.















The bottle is my best friend.


" I though that was, I  "


It makes all my pain go away.


"   I bet you can't feel "

"  I bet you can't cry "


Nothing could go wrong.


You used to be so strong ... "


I'm not hurting anybody


"   Look, Love, in the ruddy ditch... "

"  Call your parents "

"  They won't answer... "


It's normal!

I'm youthful, Im cool!


"  Look at the roadways on your skin "


I'll quit.


"  You said that last year. "

"  And the year before, and the year before.. "


Baby, I'm sorry.


" No, your not. "

" Your really not.. "


Oh, s**t ..

Baby. I'm s**t.

I'v been.


"  Yes, you are, and I'm gone."

"  Don't come near me again "

Drinking destroys people.

Those who it doesn't kill, it makes them addicts.

Those who it doens't make addicts, it robs their lives. They can only be themselves when the've had a 'nip'
