empty cans

some nights
we laugh
some nights
i cry
between sips
this liquid
is particularly problematic
genetically for me
it’s easy to
brush it off
as a good time
as an easy mistake
it’s hard to
drink less

  1. holy shit. this poem perfectly described how hard it is to stop drinking for me. your writing flows so easily and captures such a lengthy emotion in less than a paragraph.

    • it’s hard because it’s so socially acceptable to drink so there’s a lot of external pressure and, unless you want to air all your dirty laundry, you end up just sipping on something. thank you – i really appreciate the feedback and i also really like your writing!
