    Poem Commentary

    The drunk often is charming in their habits but below the surface,"We", the ones who are close to them drown along with them. It is like smimming under dark waters and needing to come up for air but not being able to. Their need to take cover kills us too . I love you always T. -Insideme-

    We drown too

    She fills the drink glass half way
    liquid fire quick & clear burns
    dash with flavors of juice
    she knows the truth but can't see
    It's killing them, her, and me.

    She speaks to me of the surface
    things situational to each day
    daughter pours out her fifths
    Self has become something she can't live with again.

    We've watched you baby, doused in grain
    convincing yourself it's not the end
    the clouds cover us all  with doom
    the crutch you use is an early tomb.

    You are funny, beautiful and intelligent
    making bad decisions doesn't make you bad
    see it, own it, change a little each morn
    each day you rise you can be reborn over and over.

    In her madness she gives up on life
    does she know what it does to them?
    they lose themselves in live video games
    not wanting to think it will be the same.

    She put that storm over their heads
    not realizing what her needs do
    they just want a parent to be there,
    to know they come first in her cares unquestionably.

    Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.
