PostSubject: Alcohol   Mon Jan 26, 2009 8:00 pm

she likes
the bittersweet taste on her tongue
knowing that its warm caress
will linger with the night still young

she likes
the spinning that blurs the world
into the depths of its dark contents
that tantalizingly swirled

she likes
the nausea that threatens to spill
numbing her heart, hurting her head
as she continues to drink her fill

she likes
the weakness that brings her to her knees
where she will stay until tomorrow
forever addicted, and tainted with disease

she drowns herself
in the comforting bottles of bliss
so she can forget
the things she doesn’t want to miss

I like how, at first, there is no rhyme (between tongue and young), and a loose rhyme (around world and swirled), but then the rhyming develops - it feels like she is being entrapped, ensnared by her drinking pattern. That is what made it so powerful, for me.

And then, when it goes from 'she likes' to 'she drowns herself' : because this new phrase is longer, it gives me the illusion that this is an overflowing, desperate flow-of-conciousness.

And, obviously, the last stanza is WiCKED. (good)

BUT first stanza, third line: 'its' not 'it's'! It burns my eyes. Mad
