Divorced From Alcohol - Poem by Cynthia BuhainBaello

Divorced from Alcohol -
Didn't pay alimony
Just regained my soul
And now I'm feeling free.

It was really amicable
There were no last regrets,
She said I will be able
In time, learn to forget.

Her scent though, still lingers
And dries my throat with thirst,
But I swore to be sober
And my life always comes first.

Yes, I have left Alcohol
And have no need to return,
My being is now whole
It's only in dreams I yearn.: -)

    hello once again. it has been some time. hope you all had a blessed Easter.
    I am all over the world with so little time for this because of my job. trying to read everyone and keep in touch. when and if I make it to retirement it will be a different
    story. I am happy if I write one poem a week.

    above poem: I know all about the torments of being addicted to alcohol
    and thanks to the grace of God and the Dutch nation I am years on the dry.
