Liquid Depression(1) - Poem by Frankie Stamey

I remember those days
Walking around in a haze
Not knowing coming or going
Parties here and parties there all in fun
Then one day the depression begun
Drinking just to get by
Not knowing why
Sometimes I cry
Telling lies to hide the truth
From my own self for sure
Everyone else could see
They all knew it wasn't me
Something just wasn't right
Liquid depression in plain sight
Taking control
Drowning memories day and night
Couldn't stop try as I might
Then one day right out of the blue
I saw the light
She was already gone
Left this town
So a new love I found
The old memories no longer hung around
With no more memories to drown
I laid the bottle down
Freed my mind of liquid depression
Became a new man
No depression of anykind
Could you find in my mind
