I really liked this poem and the meaning it had behind it. The only proble I had was with the last line of the first and second stanza...each seemed really forced, even thoguh it added to the meaning. Maybe try rhymezone.com or something to find a similar meaning rhyming word. Otherwise it was a great piece:O) -Kayla.

hey, this is austin, i know exactly about this. as i was reading this poem, so many memories came back to me. memories that i thought had been driven under totally. friends, loved ones, family, i can say, for myself, i know alcaholics in all three categories. its so funny, these guys are the nicest people when they are sober- but i still dont know why the booze takes hold of them. it's painful, isnt't it? so yes i thought your poem was great. it was short, sweet and powerful and i thank you. take care. -austin-
