Alcohol

Alcohol

A Poem by Zugzwang

Love,

‘twas not you,

but I

let it come to this.

 

Ceaseless pursuer

of sensation,

I found I

just

couldn’t

endure

The intensity of our passion.

It was tearing me apart.

 

Oh, you were always

there for me,

but what did I do

but take, take, take?

 

Gulping you down

wholesale

in the attempt to quench

an unquenchable thirst?

 

How do you fill a black hole,

anyway?

Entire suns

cannot suffice,

and neither could you.

 

I’m so sorry.

Let’s try

to remember the good times

and I’ll not use you

anymore.

Very true, very true indeed. I keep hearing about alcohol as if its a life-source or something. Good news is that I dislike alcohol completely because of religious reasons. [I am a Christian. Christianity doesn't forbid alcohol per se but forbids drunkenness and I thought that the way to avoid drunkenness is to steer clear of any alcoholic drink.]

You said it bro!
Am I missing something? This is about a girl you were addicted to or actually about alcohol? Either way it's good.

Ah, that old devil in a bottle, good for what ails ya. I gave up drinking a few years back in the hope it would drag a friend away from the edge. He fell in, I fell out and apart from the odd Brandy coffee, don't miss it at all.
We used to count the good times by being unable to remember them.
Potent write, delivered with style.
