bottom of a bottle

by Ernest A Miller

Spinning faster now
Cannot find the ground
Is it up or down?
My feet aren't touching
The spin continues
Faster still
Capturing you completely
Don't open your eyes
This ride you are on isn't over
The hangover isn't here yet

O good, you've found the ground
Your blood is slowly leaking
Across its comforting stability
From smashing your forehead to it
The spinning slows and only the thump
Thump, thump of your headache remains Buried in your blackout my hearts break goes unnoticed...

Very good descriptive poem. Thank you for a reminder of what I haven't had to deal with in nearly 27 years. Are the spelling mistakes intentional, if so, they work well here to show the confusing state of mind.
