he is the drink

he is the drink
that i shouldn’t take
the fall from grace
the downward spiral
to hopelessness
& a crippling
lack of faith
he is the drink
i shouldn’t take
the step towards
no control
my soul crumpled
on the floor
forgotten panties
stained & unwanted
he is the drink
to which i should shout
no!
the drink i should
feel strong enough to
avoid.

…why am i not strong enough?
