    dotsDaddy [2]dots

    I can't remember
    The last time
    He was sober,
    The last time
    I felt safe.
    his smell,
    his slur,
    even the thought of him,
    repulses me.
    It's revolting.
    like a cancer,
    he's infecting my lungs
    (casually, with a cigarette
    stuck to his lower lip),
    Invading my words...

      this is truly a sad piece of writing... i grew up with an alcoholic mother, but she was nowhere near this bad. alcoholism is so pervasive and affects so many people and families. perhaps he'll get help some day.

    the last line, though, didn't really fit. perhaps it should be "Invading my world..."?

      good piece of writing. I love the image of himinfecting you casually. My girlfriend's(juliets_dagger's) father is the same way, and we both hate him. I'm sorry for the crap that you have to go through...keep going, you will overcome.

    In His service,

      Yeah, my dad is a drunk too, but he's a jerk sober. I'm sorry you feel this way though. Maybe things will get better. I got a teeny bit closer to my dad when he thought he had cancer. He cried instead of making me cry. I liked the bit about the cigarette; it was ironic. I don't think I'd end it with an ellipsis, but that's your call.
