Beautiful Friend


Medicine for my soul,

that’s you;

beautiful friend alcohol.

I exhale

before you even touch my lips –

that’s your power.


Caressing when I’m bleak,

smothered by your kisses

‘til I’m weak.

Gasping for breath,

I lose it.


Feeling useless, uncertain –

you cajole me with your clutch.

Buying me confidence,

cockiness – too much,

I lose it.


You beg for more.

Secret companion,

my main vice,

you’re too commanding.

I’m losing.


I’m not me anymore.

Thoughts are suffocating.

You’re taking over,


I want out.
