Alcohol Dream

by Ava Blu

Got so drunk
My liver was actually inflamed
I was depressed
I wanted you here
Instead you were out watching strippers
And getting high
Love can give you a bigger high
If only you would let me in
Can't explain why I had to drink
Only know it made me sick
I was going to drown
Decided it was easy enough
Jumped in the pool
Everyone was too busy to notice
Just slipped away

They couldn't believe I was awake today
Couldn't believe how much I drank
Alcohol isn't killing me
Drugs were never an escape
I drank to remember when I was young and pretty
Somewhere the rules changed

I passed out
Still in my bathing suit
My sister was running her hands through my hair
I dreamt of you inside my bed
Holding this shaking soul I have
You are my prize
Never knew I could be such a Beauty Queen.

Your poem is so bittersweet. What a dream, it speaks of sadness, longing, things that may or may not be. And the alcohol is a way of escape is a way to believe the denial. Good work - I like it!

Yes, indeed, I agree with Michelle...alcohol dreams too can be very vivid, more than the normal dream. I did feel the great sadness and longing all throughout...great piece! :-)

This really touches me. Show me a person who has not experienced painful relationships, and I'll show you one lacking the depth and respect to know what real love is. Well done, Jeanna. I really like your work.
