Sorrows, drowned

Too often I approach
and try to correct
today's problems
.
Depending on a bottle
of any proof or sort
who gives a damn
.
As long as it will smooth
the tiresome days wrinkles
I want to forget

"As long as it will smooth

bag and baggage

Approach with care...instead of leaps, and those wrinkles might be forgotten forever...very nice.

Drinking will never take out the wrinkles though... =)

a couple of years ago i took to drinking often at night alone,, but i quit ,, all it was doing was squelching my ability to dream... and i love dreaming......

very nice for a quickie..

A bit of the drink taken. Short and soothing going down.

"some drink to remember/some drink to forget"

interesting poem that speaks of a sort of defeatist emotion.

This really touched me because of my father's alcoholism.
Intense use of the words this week.

I never understood drinking away problems much, but I liked the way your words flowed here.

Surely a definitive poem! I feel the angst. Nice!

LittleWing said...

Seems like the wrinkles only get more complex the next day. Nicely done.
