A Shot Of Whiskey - Poem by Jim Milks

As the sun is shinning on my empty home
I pour a shot of whiskey
To help kill the misery
of you leaving me here all alone

I pour another shot of whiskey
And long for a sweet girl to miss me
But As I sit back
I know that I will die alone

I wander the streets of this forgotten town
Passing through the unfeeling crowd
About to drown in my sorrow
My pain covering me like a shroud

Oh how, I long for the day
When I am under the dirt
and all my emotions have gone away
And I no longer hurt

    yes whiskey brings out the worst of us.... why we chose to drink when we are sad I will never understand. I really like this... you have done awesome work here.

    This is such a bitter sweet poem.
    I love the lines:
    'I pour another shot of whiskey
    And long for a sweet girl to miss me
    But As I sit back
    I know that I will die alone'
