You drink and you forget
And you cannot even walk.
Your eyes are bloodshot red
And you slur each time you talk.

To me this was so normal;
Just like every day.
But then me, mom, and Jon
Managed to get away.

We visited for a while
But eventually lost touch;
Yet I still sometimes get phone calls
That mean so very much.

Each call effects me greatly;
Sometimes I'll cry for weeks.
You try to show you care
The purpose, you defeat.

Last time you left a message,
I remember what you said.
It was late and you were drunk
And I wished that I was dead.

"Tell Jess Happy Birthday
I think its the right time...
Oh yeah, you want the number?
Huh? Oh nevermind."

It is so sad what alcohol can do to love and the family connection. This poem is heart sad.
