In a Sober reality

Updated on June 13, 2017

A slip of the tounge

I am sorry to disappoint thee

I was thinking out loud drunkenly

I tend to always were my emotions on my sleeve

After I have had one to many

Please forget the truth I spewed out to you

My state of consciousness was never true

The tears I made you cry hurt me too

I never should have kept this inside from you

I can't really tell, but I think you won't even look at me

I promise tomorrow it will be the same you see

I promise to never bring this up again from me

I can't promise what will happen once I've lost my sobriety

The pain inside

eats me alive

it makes its presence

with the element of surprise

I feel like I have to always apologize

I tend to feel the pain I would just rather hide

It loves to take my emotions for a ride

and hurt the ones closest to me in my life

Facing the Issue

You stayed by my side despite the hurtful things I said

You loved no matter even when I felt you wanted me dead

You did not give up when I thought you would leave instead

You made sure we would both enjoy this journey ahead

Spiraling out of control and nothing seemed to matter

My world without you would seem to shatter

Picking up the drunken pieces would take hours

Putting them together for a lifeless platter

And now I know

How to control

What I couldn't before

I owe you this and more

In conclusion

I know I have been guilty in the past for saying or texting drunk and saying some pretty hurtful things. Just because we are drunk and have no control over what we say, does not make it right. Remember, what is on mind sober, tends to come out drunk. If it gets to the point where it is always targeted at one individual, then you need to address that problem and get some help. Because if it gets to the point where the person on the receiving end has had enough, you may be watching this person walk out of your life and never come back.

      Some very serious poetry here, Fullerman..straight from the heart and pulling no punches. Those text messages lightened things up though :) Great job.
