Still fresh in my mind,
all those times
just you and me, chased away the pain.
With endless bottles of wine.
But it and I have gotten old,
and I think it's time for a change.

Or how bout when wed get together
and pound God knows how many beers,
laughing as life kept passing.
We really had some great times..
at least the ones I remember over the years.

You've been my co-pilot on too many a night.
And right by my side in the morning;
you are my hangover,
yet you guide me back to life.

Sadly, these times will never again be.
My body can't do it,
but I'll cling to the memories.

I have to make myself want to.
Never again want you.
To kill my pain,
To keep me less insane.
To get over that girl,
To numb all the troubles I have in this world.

So now I put the Jack back.
Im jumping off that track.
And warmth will never come slo again.
And it isn't at the bottom of a 1/5 of Gin.
No more Comfort Southern style.
Or empty 12 pack boxes in a pile.
And to yOu;
my one and only Miller-Lite;
I fight to say this but... not tonight.
I thought we'd last forever.
I thought you made me better.
Looking back I wasn't often sober.

I kind of got another date,
in a different state.
With myself.
I think maybe I could be of some help.
Where I am going is un-familiar but a friendly place.
and I really don't know anybody.
But they say good things happen in the town of Sobriety.

We had a ball,
and we rocked harder than them all.
But now it's time to say Goodbye.
This is my Last Call.
Im taking back my life.
..............................................farewell... my Miller Lite

Last Call
I like very much that this reads like a letter to a dear friend. I guess it rings true that there are many things in life that feel good but mess us up in the end. Good message.

nae but
this is all true...Too true for me, it all happened to me about 2 weeks ago---Problems with my stomache(pain) and then the Doc said --no more -so................errrr no more --so far 13 days....People say so how do you feel?...to which I quickly reply Like fuuuuuckin shit man, off---anyway you get the pic.-yeah it's a good message but I am being so serious in the piece, I am actually sad..Feel like those times when you are out of control with friends and just raging --those experiences we had/crazy times--well I just will never be in those situations again because I wont let myself again---it really does sadden me.

Mike,

Hope you're still hanging in there. It's been about 8 1/2 years for me. There was, a few years ago, a short exception involving dating women who drank, who I met after my ex and I split-up. I didn't let that go far, though. Watch out for that.

Anyway, I like the poem and title.

flonigus--
a nice Irish boy from the bronx are ya?????-eh just a guess...any-ha I am hanging in therte still but yesterday so far in my 14 looooooooooooooooooooooooong days dry, I had a wicked argument/confrontation with a guy named Jack D. You all know who I am refering to. Any-ha we had it out man , but I stood or sat with confidence that I would be cool and the showdown went to me at least round 1 that is...I am posting a poem I wrote about that right now look for it please--Thx again for taking the time to read my lil farewell to the sauce..It aint easy/not at all but it is for the best, and don't worry drunk chicks -to ME are the absolute worst walking thing in this jungle by far--it really makes them unattractive and I am sure it goes vice/versa but that I really don't pay to much attention to.
