Tequila Loves Me

by Gem   Jul 28, 2007


She sits in the corner of the kitchen crying
Cos she's found out about his cheating and lying
Fumbling in the cupboards with one clumsy hand
So intoxicated, she can't even stand

Her world tumbled down when he left her alone
Came back from work to a broken up home
All that was left was a crumpled up letter
She knew what to do to make it all better

Tore up all his clothes that he's left behind
Smashed up his belongings and threw them outside
Opened up the champagne saved for a special day
And drank it all down wondering what he'd say

Hours later she slumped down amongst the debris
Singing loud; "Never mind, Tequila loves me!"
Clutching the bottle tightly in her fist
She finally succumbed to the alcohols kiss

    "Cos she's found out about his cheating and lying"
    [Cos she's found out he's cheating and lying]
    - I guess your way sounds just fine, but the 'out, about' thing kind of threw me off. It's fine though, but I was just pointing out the connection there and how you could change it if you'd like to

    I love this poem! It's catchy, cute, and at the same time very depressing and sad. I think it's something people can relate to, even if they're not drinkers. The emotional boundaries are set to please, that's for sure.

    And, the way you've thought it out, cleverly, is quite nice. (:

    Wow, the ending was awesome, especially the last line. It ended the poem perfectly. It was almost like a scene from a movie. Great write. 5/5

    Ok, i know im not supposed to, but i found it funny. Sorry if that offends you but i can just imagone a girl sitting on her kitchen floor singing tequilla loves me, sorry i guess it tickled my funny bone! Anyway it is an amazing poem all the same and every girl has dealt with a cheating scumbag by going through this at one point or another.
    Excellent poem.
