Time in a bottle

by Iforeverpromise2   Sep 30, 2010

Time in a bottle
or so the old man thought
as he picked up his last bottle of gin
and grinned
He finally beat the poison
He layed it gently down in the trash so as not to break it
so much time spent in that bottle
So many wasted years
and for what
the problems he thought he was drowning away
only got worse as time slipped away
Time in a bottle
now a bottle in time
as he walks slowly away from his demon

    This was amazing! The sentence structure and the flow threw me a little, but the overall work was awesome! I love the people on here can still write about life in a positive way and still be interesting. Alcoholism is a tough subject, and I'm glad you had the guts to address as a problem and not as a solution. Keep up the good work! ;)
