Description: This poem is about the relationship between a man and a bottle of alcohol. It sad because both parties get hurt in the end...
TALES OF A BROKEN BOTTLE -------------------------------------------
You grab me tightly by my waist
As if I am some sort of whore
Penetrating me with your issues
Pouring tears into my tight opening
While taking all of what has been poured into me
Once you've gotten what you want
You leave me, tossing me aside
Causing me embarassment
Treating me like trash
Until you are ready to ejaculate your soul into me again
You yearn for this poison that I house
It penetrates you, marching into your kidneys and liver
Scarring your organs as it covers up the mental scars you've acquired
But only for a moment...
You'll call me again
You're addicted to my poison
My fluids place you under the influence
And you can't control me
I can't control you either
So we fight each other internally
I have realized that it is not my slim waist that attracts you
It is not my plunging neck line that has interested you
I thought you loved me!--The way we kissed
The times we've spent together
All the "ice" that you've bought me...
All A Lie! You've never wanted me!
You've only wanted one thing!
And once you get it you take off
Leaving me lonely once again!
Tossed on the side of the road
Even though we'll be back together
We bottles don't perspire...
As you grab me by my waist yet again
interesting... i liked he comparions, and you made it flow well... I'm not sure if this line fits... too much of a woman instead of the bottle.. although I like the ice part.. but not the bought that goes with it... I thought you loved me!--The way we kissed The times we've spent together All the "ice" that you've bought me...
Pretty deep. Myself being a recovering drug addict, I got a lot out of it. I know EXACTLY how it feels, when drugs(including alcohol) just take you by the waist. You cry inside, knowing what it's doing to you.. But hey, you do it anyways. Insanity, my friend Awesome write, I like the way you wrote it.
Well, this is really something. Who (but you) would have ever thought of writing about the effects of alcohol, from the bottles point of view? And the sexual inuendos all in between the lines. Very clever! All said and done, it gets the point across. Nice work! ~Sandra
You get a standing ovation from me on this totally awesome poem. I so love the creative part in this poem,mixing and protraying a bottle as a women and the emotional relationship betwen a man and a women,though dark in this poem,but honest when things are going like crap.
I just have to add this one to my fav
You should be very proud of yourself with this excellent write
X this was very friggin great. I really liked how you got the bottle to be feminine and the drinker/reader (man or woman) can totally relate. What a powerful write. (look at me, saying this as I am drinking a beer, HA!) Yes very well written and a very poignant message. Have a good one and keep smilin'
Wow, I love this double-meaning you've got going on! The symbolism, a bottle of alcohol, a used woman. And in both cases it's like they're looking beyond each other to get what they think they need. This is deep, I'll bet it sounds good recited. Great job!
this was interesting if i didnt read the description i would have thought it was about a man and a woman. and how she or he feels used. by the other person. so it was very interesting i liked it alot. great job
such an interesting perspective.you gave life to it. lol, we never get to hear the beer's side of the story. great job. you grabbed with the language you used to describe the paracitic relationship betwen the two. nice work~nahlij
Wow X!!!! I'm totally speechless. This is so creative. You speak your mind in this one it seems. I like how it was the bottle of alchol talking...that was really unique. Great job on this one. It was well written...and not a think I would change at all.
This was a great way to present the relationship, however dysfuntional between a person and their "poison". I really thought it unique how you made the bottle with a feminine quality and how the bottle thinks it's love. Well done and good point in the process! Love,Peace,Joy and Happy 4th! epiph ; }
at first i would have never thought that this was a relationship between a drunk and his beer bottle it seems so sexual i know its about an alcoholic and his beer but it reminds me so much about the relationship between a man and a woman he cares nothing for i liked it good job
Wow! This is good. You speak of the pain, hurt and rejection. All in all, it's a two way street. Both are addicted to each other. They crave the raw passions each have to give. Like a love hate relationship. They can't do without each other. A co-dependency of a sexual need. Great job! Wanda
Really nice write! I enjoyed reading this very much! I like how you speak as the bottle, giving its' point of view. I like how you used "ice" as symbolism, it's great! Only a couple of things here, no "e" on waist and thought in the 5th stanza. Otherwise this is just great! Really good stuff!
Wow...I'm impressed with this write. The desperation you conveyed between the two was awesome. The power of the words you chose really put a strong punch to this piece! This is a sad and unfortunate reality that too many people face. This was from a very interesting point of view...and I thoroughly enjoyed it! Candi
