Magic Glasses Dramatic Poetry About Alcohol/Life


Magic Glasses


of liquor

wash up memories

induce immodesty

sustain a void

that neglects

inner respect

exposing an

outer image

where frankness

kept deeply inside

magnifies portraits of truth

most often feigning

a brief escape

to jump in to the arms of

gratification with a murky haze

subdued by the monster

that can’t be faced

It is a monster and the sad thing is to save oneself from its grips you have to face it. Thank you for sharing your poetry. Jamie

I saw and felt it growing up as a boy first hand in my household. It's ugly, painful, sorrowful, deadly, criminal and devastating to all your surroundings. Families fall apart, thank you for sharing the pain of it all.

All of my school aged kidods are involved with some kind of extra-curricular activy. My 16 year old son is on the drumline at his high school, my pre-teen daughter is on the volleyball and softball teams and my 8 year old son is half way to his black belt in Taekwondo.My little guy who stays home with me and does flash cards during the day has extra-curricular activites of napping and cuddling with Mommy and Daddy! =)
