Drown My Sorrows - Poem by Orlando Belo
I'm sitting alone in the Blue Parrot Bar,
my world has fallen apart.
The woman I love has said a final goodbye,
the love has gone from her heart.
We once swore to love each other forever,
and I believed her with all of my heart.
I'm taking my first drink from this bottle.
after a few more, the forgetting should start.
We used to get on so well together,
there was nothing we couldn't confide.
I'll just take another drink from the bottle,
now that she has cast me aside.
I just can't stop thinking about her,
nothing will ever be the same.
I'll take another drink from the bottle,
it should help to numb the pain.
When I finally empty this bottle,
her memory should surely have gone.
So I'll drink what's left in the bottom.
My mistake, it's going to take more than one.
