A Day In The Life Of An Alcoholic's Wife...

Rating: 5.0

Just like a number of months before,
I awoke from a terrible dream
screaming
I took the next few moments of haze then
scrambling for my bearings
Just a dream, or a warning?
too soon to tell, yet
already
program running out of my skull...
And just like that,

I've armed myself with my old ways

A sad story of two tormented, seriously ill individuals desperately in search of a cure. The ultimate answer, I'm convinced, lay somewhere within the both of you! ! ! Wishing you well my friend.

The two words that come to mind after reading this are optimism and love. Your poetic confessional is straight from the heart and honest and heartfelt. Your story is incredibly sad, but the reader senses your pluck and determination to keep up the struggle. There is no solution, I know. You can't wait for the waves to dies down, you just have to learn to ride the waves. Perhaps the penning of this might make a difference. Good luck. love, Allie xxxx

Lee this reminded me of two poems I wrote earlier this year on alcoholism. I agree with Melvina, stand by him because there will come a time when he will need your support. I know times can't be easy, but my prayers are with you my friend. Top marks and thanks for sharing this with us. David

There's a song called 'Stand By Your Man' and sister that is exactly what you are doing, also the marriage vow that says 'For Better Or Worse' you are the testament to both of those. Your heart is full of love for this man that you chose to be your lifelong partner, no matter what problems, you are standing by him even though in the quiet of night or early morning you may feel resentment, a normal happening I might add. This is a very special poem, heartfelt, an accounting of a difficult relationship that needs healing, so my prayers are with you this week Lee. I will pray for a healing for your husband to free him from this horrific addiction. Alcolholism can be beat, sometimes the trials and tribulations faced in life are trumatic and hurtful. There is always hope and if we keep our faith in God, life will improve. Come and visit me on Sunday morning Lee and pray with me. I feel your pain Lee, an excellent write.-Melvina-

I know I said it would be hard for me to comment on your poems. In moreways then 1 I have gone thru a lot of your life with you. I have felt all your pain and I have cried many many tears with and for you. I agree with what someoneelse saidont his poem where others would have chose to walk, you stayed. I have always admired the relationship you and hubby have together, I have seen many ups and down with you guys. I know how bonded you are to one another. How both of your souls are as 1. I am so glad that you bothfound your strengths to do what you had to do for yourselves as individuals and a couple. I love you both more than I could I ever say and I am so proud of you
