~ Addicts Regrets ~

Waterford Lismore Essence Goblet, Red Wine Glasses from Crystal Classics


Look into my eyes

and tell me what you see?

Thoughts of who I was,

and who I ought to be.

The thought of love, and the

thought of hate

the thought of internal despair 

was all too great

My first thought was of a drink.

‘Chip off the ole’ block’

a daughter paying for her 

father’s sins

by becoming exactly like him.

Loss of family, loss of friends

loss of my own sanity

that was blown away by the wind.

I often wonder within my thoughts;

would things be any different

if I never became a drunk?

Thoughts of regret still fill me inside,

although the bottle was put aside.

My recovery is a work in progress

every day.  

Yet, it’s my mental state I try to keep at bay.

I don’t miss the day’s when the bottle was my life,

I simply take each day in stride,

One moment at a time.
