A poem youll never hear

Just another drop love, just another glass.

Just another bottle , im sure that this one will last.

Just another day gone , just another week ,

Its only here and there love, its just to help me sleep.

Its just another month where ive felt a little stressed

And ive needed it to get me by and decide on what is best,

Its just another argument , that I cant remember now ….

I know that you were crying , but I don’t know what about.

Its only been a few years , where ive been a little depressed,

And that glass that used to help me sleep now seems to cause unrest

But I know that I can stop , when it needs to be addressed

So lets not get all worked up , over something in a glass.

Its just another memory , its just another dream

A bit of my self confidence , a drop of my self esteem

Its just another panic attack , self doubt and anxiety

The loss of friends and hobbies that made me , really me

Its only two children , that both chose to move away

My daughter and my friend , my best in many ways

I think she tried to help me , but in the end she couldn’t stay

Its only one that I have , one daughter to share my life

But if I had to chose at this stage , I think its best to carry on the lies

Its only another few years for me , ive only got to retire

I haven’t any mortgage and my mother seems alright

And im too tired to start something new or think about addiction

And its safe and warm inside my house where I cant feel my own afflictions.

Because its just one more glass love , please tell me why your weeping,

Why don’t you have one with me , its so much easier than thinking

I love you , don’t be silly , don’t ever question that ,

Im not trying to hurt you , I love you , please come back.

Agree with Cynthia, shorter cleaner lines would make this incredibly powerful.

Well done, HannahMary

There is much to admire in this, not least the subject itself. IMO, it has so much to say, boldly and honestly, that a little extra attention to tighten it up would produce an even stronger, more effective work.
