Alcoholic

by Sam Roberts

Engraved into her flesh
A mark of pressure
A declaration to her will
Just softly skimming over her vain
A perfect circle.

As she soon performs the effortless task,
of softly skimming her hand over the top
of the wine glass.

She drinks her toast
To her grave.

Powerful enough to blow the tusks off an elephant at 1000 yards. Well done!

Wow! Very powerful and bleak. Great job!

Like a slap. Definitely powerful!

"a mark of pressure" so much lies in that line. This speaks in whispers. Great job.
