Awake–and numb: A Haiku

Six months….and sober;

Finding my way back from blind rage

and drunkenly hurting others

still numb inside

waiting for a drink that won’t come….

The numbness envelops me at times

making me want to experience an altered state

where my mind can go rogue

and make my body it’s weapon of choice

and leave my mind with no remorse…or recall.

No more.

This is a bare-knuckled fight to the death.

One of us will not survive.

One of us will be eaten alive.
