Leaving Melancholia

Bingo! A failed attempt, first time ever
Is it a great night if it hadn’t put you in melancholia?
No alternative in your mind
Guess I was delusional but we see
Vodka wasn’t helpful in childhood
Tequila ain’t into you, boss
Scotch really made me smile, at last
Not feeling egotistical
I am too lazy to evolve
But let me know a good reason
Still need some solid part of you to hate


Life is short, so let’s be decent.

I talk about wine a lot so I guess it’s easy for someone to get the wrong impression. I have published fiction posts from time to time so I am not really worried about it. I also added a fiction tag, just in case. Everyone has been very sweet. x

I guess I didn’t really think about the alcoholism theme, I was just swept away with the melancholy and the “still need some solid part of you to hate”. I’ll watch the tags more carefully in the future. 🙂

Thanks a lot Nadia, but please don’t worry about things like that. I wasn’t sure if it was any good so I feel flattered that you were so distracted by the content.

This poem is a creative presentation. I wanted to see if I could convey the feeling of inner turmoil and loneliness experienced by people who are suffering from addiction. I wanted to do this without putting them down. I hope I’ve achieved that. I wish every recovering alcoholic the very best for their sobriety.
