i could use a laxative for my brain
cuz i'm all stopped up up there again
if i could scoop those thoughts out from my ear
like a junkie with a baby spoon up his rear
but that wouldn't help my ability to hear

i could use a stool softener for my mind
that didn't cause brain cramps of any kind
though i might have to wait for the thoughts to pass
i'd appreciate relief by maybe passing some brain gas
but my mind's in my head and not in my ass

My brains still in a little funk After relapse on that Shittty junk
Things get clearer day by day Why did I ever drink that way
Now the fog is clearing some having that drink was plain dumb
I like it when I'm healthy me if only hindsight I could see .

Why do we do it?
I sure wish I knew.

The storm blows past
Life lies in ruins

We look up again
We swallow our meds

Oh WELL. They call this getting WELL.....••••••****I rise again.....•••••*****🎈

Slow and steady wins the race don't need a drink just in case.
The cravings gone some peace again it'll rear but who knows when
Til that happens I'll bide my time stick with lemon bitters n lime
Don't want that crap no way no how I like my life the way it is now

To SW: just saying your quote is amazing and oh so true
When sober and living life on the terms that come through
We're making our way along a path that is quite new
Handling life with the good and the not so much too.

This thread has a way to lift us up gladly
When we may have stopped by with our thoughts tending sadly
We know we're a part of a group that's at times joyful
Just the fact we're alive is, in itself, truly a gift to behold.

Country Highway Waltz

i thought i was broken
but i wasn't that bad
the words that were spoken
were all that i had

but what's worse than the madness
self torture and sadness
is the time that i've lost

you were always so distant
you were always so mean
you were worse than insistent
but you were rarely seen

but what's worse than the hours
were the symbolic flowers
that came with a cost

now i'm out on the highway
and i'm lost and alone
it was your way or my way
you didn't toss me a bone

and at the end of this journey
they'll roll me out in a gurney
then i'll never be bossed

in the shade of a hemlock
in the shade of an oak
i'm just a j. alfred prufrock
i'm the butt of my joke

but i can't crack a smile
at so much broken tile
in a house that's been crossed

and what's worse than the madness
self torture and sadness
is the time that we've lost

sometimes i wanna give up
sometimes i wanna **** up
sometimes i wanna retreat
sometimes i wanna get beat
sometimes i wanna get fired
sometimes i'm so ******* tired
sometimes i wanna take off
sometimes i think i'm just soft

I'm lying all cozy in bed
Warm and well-fed
Soon I'll close my eyes
And hope for a pleasant surprise
I don't know what awaits in my dreams
Hopefully some good things
It wasn't always this way
I remember those days
I'd simply pass out
And awake to self-doubt
There was no real sleep
No dreams to keep
Thinking back I remember so well
That deep, dark hell
Basic things I'd lost
Dreams only a fraction of the cost
The money I spent
Hardly made a dent
Compared to the price I paid
And everything I did trade
Just to get wasted
My sanity
My memory
Given away for alcohol tasted

I think I'll just lie in bed
Sometimes I think there's something wrong with my head
I feel so unmotivated
Everything seems so overrated
I don't want to watch tv
Today I don't really want to be me
I don't want to go for a walk
And I really don't want to talk
I don't want to cook
And I don't want to read a book
I'm not tired enough to sleep
I'm not even sad enough to weep
I just have a case of the blues-
But worse than that, like times two

I have to admit
I'm acting rather codependent
I wish I could just focus on me
And not worry about the he
It does come and go
Dependent on what, I don't know
Today it's been kind of rough
I try to fight but it's tough
Now it's dark out early
And I want to cry like a girly
But I'll try instead amuse
Both myself and all yous
With a handful of lines
Of these crappy rhymes
At least I've find something to do
To distract for a few

So I call out to all my limerick friends
Come and post something to help my misery end
Life is feeling like a trial
So please write something to make me smile

I think back and remember the times
I've laughed at all our rhymes
Remember the things I used to say about my ex
And how Carlos was mortified by my words about the male sex
How we used to talk about men not doing the dishes
Or leaving piles of garbage smelling of rotten fishes
Or how I had a thing
For Mr. Jason Aldean
Or about how Bradley Cooper
had some others going loopers

DG my dear darling friend I hope this misery will end
I won't be a party pooper so I'll call on bradly cooper
Who I've borrowed from Ippy so put on your lippy
C'mon DG you're a real trouper :-)

I know you'd rather Aldean
He's hot I know what you mean
You may use him just for a day
Get the deed out of the way
I'm sure you'll feel better
opening his French letter
Be happy come what may !

I remember when you played the drums
And told all your limerick bums
We're so proud of you
We love what you do
You're a credit to all of us Mums (&dads) :-)

i've been doing planks
and i've been doing kegels
staying off the donuts
and staying off the bagels
i've been doing crunches
and i've been doing stretches
trying not to be
one of them old wretches
so far so good
i feel i'm getting stronger
adding a few reps everyday
and holding planks for longer
but after two damn surgeries
i'm still so tight and weak
but i'm walking and that's something
and i don't drink or tweak
