Alas dear snoozyq
And Mr. Zero you too
You're rhyming is slick
And may be what's done the trick
Today has been much less blue

Really it's pretty cool
I can dig around in my bag of tools
Post a limerick on SR
Drive to a meeting in my car
And talk to another sober fool
(Sorry Carlos, it's the only word that rhymes!)

It doesn't take long for my mood to turn
When I apply the skills that I've learned
And knowing I've got all of you here
Is a thousand times better than a beer

Tired now, it's time for bed
I expect I'll sleep like the dead
Did I really ever think
That I needed alcohol too fall asleep?
Sober I'll rest much more deep
Than ever when passed out in an unconscious heap

I thought I'd take a moment just to sit
And make an SR visit
My cat is curled at my feet
And I've had a meal to eat
Just a couple days then 2 years, 7 months I'll hit

It seems like it took forever to get here
I wanted all of this, the day I quit drinking beer
People said, "It'll get better, just wait"
I wanted it all at an earlier date
But sometimes now, I forget how bad I wanted to be right here

I wanted so badly to get out of the hole
Not that I ever had a set goal
I could say whatever, but let's be honest
My new addiction is to this progress
I must raise the bar ever higher to feel whole

DG
I hope you soon will feel whole
take it from this old moll
Life is hard depression grows
Take it from one who knows
You have a lovely soul

you never really lose your poetic mojo

Thanks snoozy.

Late at night I'm pretty tired
Just got out of a concert so also wired
So if now my words seem profound
Tomorrow I'll discover they should go on a trash mound
But it was good to get out of the house
Sure beats smoking an ounce

Do Narwhals Have Blowholes?
It's an actual book.
If you don't believe me
Give the web a look.

it make me sad there are no rappers
no poets or songsters or naked toe tappers
so write me a line
instead of reaching for wine
and wake up your muse you dang nappers

I'm always guaranteed to see
A poem from zero two or three
I love you keep this thread alive
It helped many of us to survive

Your twisted humours up my alley
Has me laughing from my belly
You have to be a certain kind
With a warped state of mind

To share all that we've been through
In between a drink or 2
But know that when I come here
Your words fill me with total cheer

Your clever take on the insignificant
Makes your poetry so magnificent
You tangle words and make them fit
You're funny zero you're legit

So thanking you for every time
I come here and see a rhyme
Knowing there are some from you
That even involve wee or poo

I know I'm gonna get that laugh
Or dry reach into a barf
I love the way you word my friend
May this Limerick thread never end

:-))) xx

How does one "dry reach into a barf"?
I thought about that all night long.
Well, actually, I didn't - not all night long.
But I thought a bit about how it's so wrong.

I'll admit- you guys are just a bit sick
Don't get me wrong, I'm not really complaining
At least it distracts from how my boyfriend is a dick
Well, that's not exactly it, but I shy from explaining

Are you ever too embarrassed to want to share?
Even though you know others really wouldn't care
Even though anonymous, there's things I hesitate to air

Mostly, I've been doing really well
I've been using my coping skills
Avoiding, drugs, alcohol or pills
And even when I feel bad
I tell myself, I'll keep trying things till I don't feel so sad

It reminds me so much of early recovery
Even when life was rough
I focused on doing good stuff

So while my problem isn't solved
Each day, I just try to stay involved
I work, do projects and make it to meetings
Where at least I'm sure of coffee and warm greetings

I don't want to deny my feelings or stuff them away
But I also don't want to dwell and waste the whole day
It can be a pretty fine line to try to walk
I feel the dangers on either side

I'm trying to learn how to let go
So I can stop feeling so ******* emo

When the day is almost over and the stars come out at night the coldness on your shoulders dampens the spark that gives you light

I'm coming bk to this another day keep getting writers block
