drink away the days,
drink away the laundry,
drink away the pegs that
break as you put your
lacy lingerie on the washing line for all to see

drink drink drink
until the one with their
nails dug deep into your
heart remembers
you exist

drink away the slow internet,
the bills, the speeding fines,
drink away the withdrawals
and then stop

let your brain suffer,
let your hallucinations **** the
juice from your cerebral cortex,
let the seizures take the wheel,
spasm and choke

then finally lay yourself to a
psychotic rest as the
delirium tremens
set in because

*death is just the physical manifestation of the metaphorical ghost you were in life
This was actually a series of tweets I posted but I thought I could turn it into a poem
