Last Orders

Old heart, how I know

I’ve abused you so;

with all the whisky

beer and wine.

I know One day

you’ll say –

it’s now time to go,

as sooner or later,

you’ll call it time.

Nice sediments, sorry, Nice sentiments Dougie.
This lexdysia gets in the way sometimes :)

Very true, Dougie. There must also be other abuses attributable to this modern day living too. Sad when you think that the remedy is balance in all things.

Although i don't drink i have abused my heart with bad feelings and wrong emotions.This work is so sensitive.
The inner communication with my heart is something i have.
To me this poem is a great work.Make me think about the time i will leave.Bravo!!!
