This work has reached the exceptional level
Drowning in liquor

Functioning Alcoholic

by kmoss

Foggy recollection of the night before
Uncommon incidents, a perpetual lie
Nemesis in a glass, solution poured
Caparison of bruised body decor
Thirsty for a method to survive
Improper proposal for my mental health
Opportunities explored and failed
Naively believe that I am stealth
Inebriated idiot will be unveiled
Nostalgic for happy times without a twist
Grant me a lime to infuse with this mist

Ahhhh, the lime paired perfectly with the liquor
Liberated articulation, tongue of truth sedum
Careless conversation, deranged ideas flicker
Offensively debate my newest sloshed theorem
Hypocritical affair
Obligated to drain the whole bottle
Leaning in my chair
Idle until a headache awakens full throttle,
Creating chaos everywhere

I feel this fits well because I awaken looking and feeling like I was trampled by a horse. Sometimes while also feeling like a horse's ass! Ha.

(Takes a sip and looks around.)
Don't judge a drunk by the bottle. This is overexaggerated fiction. It may or may not pertain to the author. Do not send me AA pamphlets. I do not need that kind of help.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
