i lurv u


mess with this heart
why don't you? still
oblivious to all you are
all the effects you have
messing this here heart

swagger into the room
head careening, askew
slurring pronouncements
your fond affections spew
I lurv you..... I lurv you

why burden this heart
when sober, always aloof
hardly your eyes meet mine
tongue-tied and twisted
no words, no touch, no smile

wake up, sober up and see
there is so much more, here
more than cooler cans in hand
or that awful look in your eyes
as you sway, pleading, with me

    Emotive words, it just shows how much drink can affect our lives.

      Thanks, Andy. I remember a man who knew his Bible verses only when intoxicated and would be at the church on Sundays in a drunken rage.
