I'm Sorry


I’m sorry that I am an addict I want to quit but I can’t I feel like I am stuck and a black mass is wrapping itself around my ankles squeezing tighter and tighter. Then it slithers up my legs around my waist around my arms squeezing me like a boa constrictor restricting my breath I cannot breathe. I am bound by the misery of addiction early similar to my child hood and it won’t let me go.

I am sorry so sorry. I feel helpless like an infant in the arms of a mad man too small to know the danger it is in to week to do anything about it if it did. I want to blame this on my father but he did the best he could for me with a mother behind the metaphorical bars of a vodka bottle and his father actually in prison for stealing potatoes to feed his family. My father did the best he could for me.

I am sorry so sorry that I left you there to cry yourself to sleep. Saying your own prayers praying that daddy would just make it through. I am sorry so sorry my child that you have a junky for a daddy. I am not the man that I desire to be I’m sorry so so sorry please do not grow up to be like me.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
