Life with an Alcoholic

I’m drowning 

Drowning in tears

Drowning in fears

Fears of losing my best friend 

Losing my partner in life

In a world of Fireball 

Fireball they yell

Shots shots shots shots shots shots shots 

Shots to my heart every time you come home

Shots every time I’m left at home alone

Left for a bottle of booze

A battle I fight hard to fight, but always lose

Venom spewing from your lips 

Words that sting like a knife

Is this my life?


So much space between us

A connection I try to connect, time and time again 

I don’t recognize my best friend 

Depression has now become a regular 

I ask do you love me 

You say I love my booze

I realize this one battle I will lose
