    Alcohol

    Alcohol is a bad therapist.
    It reminds you everything
    That you didn't want to remember
    But makes it easier on the way;
    To hell
    That you've chosen
    For yourself.
    Only for a while.
    It's uneducated.
    Failed its degree eons back
    And now just pretends.

    Alcohol is a bad husband.
    It makes you go insane
    Calls out the monster that lives inside.
    A tortured soul
    That tortutres others.
    Just to feel a bit less of a pity
    On itself
    Just to feel powerful
    By causing pain
    When everything else
    Is getting out of control.

    Alcohol is a bad driver.
    It doesn't recognise the accelerator
    As good as you do
    An amateur
    Presses it as breaks.
    Driving on the empty road
    Without a licence.

    Alcohol is a bad friend.
    It takes you in its warm embrace.
    Let's you cry out
    Scream
    Not care about the world.
    And then it starts eating you.
    Conspicuously,
    Scrounging the flesh from the very core.
    Until there is nothing of you
    Left to hold on to.
    Until there is just Alcohol is your blood
    And death in your eyes.
