Breaking through Denial (poem to share)

    Just a poem that I wanted to share with someone...anyone...feedback always appreciated.

    It’s that familiar feeling as it creeps through your veins,
    Numbness starts spreading, brief relief from the pain.

    Like an old friend or lover knows your body too well,
    Knows what buttons to push to release you from Hell.

    It’s that rattle of the bottle, and the beauty of the line…
    But whose eyes are staring back?
    That reflection can’t be mine...

    Just close your eyes tight, and bow your head down,
    Like a perverse little prayer to the ritual you’ve found.

    Following the lines further, as they dance through your mind,
    Locking away your secrets in a black corner no one can find.

    But stashed further back, buried deep beneath the burn
    Your old self is suffocating.
    Waiting for its turn…Waiting for you to learn.

    I loved your poem. I am a wife of an addict. I left him over a hear and a half ago due to drugs being in our home with our infant daughter. I have been waiting for him to see the light...to find his way...to want better for himself...to see glimpses of HIM again. I miss my husband. It's like he no longer exists. This poem gives me hope he may come back from this. Thank you for sharing.
