Bottom of the Bottle -An Alchy’s Daughter



Words of Hate, Words of Disdain,
I know it’s in your family genes
Lighting the fire with gasoline
I try to intervene
at the bottom of the bottle

I remember sitting on your shoulder’s
In October, we share the same.
Even when you are oldest,
I will still fight for you,
at the Bottom of the Bottle.

I love you and I only miss you
Even though you are still with me.
I don’t recognize the person you become

When you are…. Drinking at the bottom of the Bottle
