Alcoholic

Location

Crack! Pop! Fizz! Yet another beer down.

The anger boils up,

While the true you is left to drown.

The spiral continues, you’ve lost all control.

Just one more cup,

Just a little more crown...

 

How far will you go?

Would you even sell your soul?

You fight, you struggle, your mind says yes but your heart says no.

Another sip,

And the person you once were continues to slip.

 

Down, down, the more you fall,

The more willing you are to beg and crawl.

In the mirror your true self is gone,

You’ve become a liquor store pawn.

Now the truth is plain to see,

You’ve become what you swore you’d never be;

Alcoholic.
