Intoxicated (Life Of An Alcoholic)

Poem By Robert Roberts

A tear runs down my face
as i stare down this half empty
bottle man i remember back then
so young and pure
where did this days go
i miss the old me but so much
been accomplished can i give it all up
i take a sip as the liquor being to hit
oh man i feel good stress free
i want this feeling to stay so i sip again
yea i sit back and rock back and forth
as they all sleep am still here
haven't left yet as all come rushing back
so i take a bigger sip
and wishes it goes away
heard news about a former class mate died
damn more stress so i
grab the bottle a little harder
as i drink my tears away
missing my family so i drink more
as i sing lullabies to this fragmented glass

A New Start

The water licked down my back
as it gave birth to the purity
of a new year it aided the love
and tears the pain and fears

A Poets Prayer

</>Dear father
you've entrusted me with this gift
and though my life may not be perfect
i promise to use it

A Mother's Sacrifies

Curled up in warm blanket
sewn from the tears and
love of a mother
no worries in the world

Your Love

Tears in my eye
to all my fallen soldiers
in death there no lies
we weren't made to say good bye

Welcome September

Wide awake i stare
on while the sea and the sun
tango as they give light
to a new day

Its Time

this body has done it time
cause i swear it no longer mine
i feel like a shattered mirror
a lost soul
