Slow death

In his eyes .... anger, pain, confusion
The alcohol coursing through his veins
To relieve the shaking, the shivering
His mind ..... slowly deteriorating
Going insane
The sweat on his face falls like rain
Like all addicts, the next ' fix' is on his brain
When I look into his eyes filled with with all the anger, pain and confusion
I see a man who is lost
Lost to the anger ....
Lost to the pain ....
Lost to the confusion ...
Lost in the drink.

The battle of alcoholism.
It sucks.

RAFAEL: These days, it's all I know. Thanks for your support sunshine!

BAMATRAV: Well, it could be about my first ex-husband, but it's not. I wrote it for someone very close to me who is struggling.

BOXER: Thank you. Yes. Hell.
