Backward as I walk

Backwards as I walk into life

With open eyes to see my wrongs

Once thought strong but weak I was

Before the drink I did not think

But thoughts became my life

The day I tasted her lips,

she empowered me

With words so vividly

She enhanced my thoughts

And gave me strength

To hide my insecurity,

I lust for her with every sip

Till she sets me free

This bitter bitch

That flipped my switch

And made me go crazy

Backwards as I walk into life

Without that bottle that was once

My friend to live life again ©

We all have our guilty pleasures... perhaps someday a real woman will treat you right enough to tempt you away from that bottle. (ps this reminded me of the Tupac song Me and My Girlfriend)

IdeaMorphist yes we all do have our guilty pleasures, mine is the love lust of women,

And though I’ve had many of great women in my life My affair with the bottle has been the greatest love story I’ve known haha joking don’t drink that much, but thanks for the comparison to Tupac song
