'With one hand wrapped around the throttle
The other gripping the bottle
Of liquid fire wrapped in a pill'
...Been there Brother! Poetry will keep you sane...Kepp writing. You have a gift with words...Keep writing...Like a dog with many fleas that needs to scratch, scratch, scratch...You the poet with many stories, must write, write, write!
Too sad, but it is the duty of a poet to share. We are merely storytellers, put on this world to help others understand us, (or our humanity) better.
Well written and what a great title...it says it all!
