An emoji-explosion reminder to myself of how alcohol lies to me

An emoji-explosion reminder to myself of how alcohol lies to me

Alcohol fuels the fire ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ
Fans the flames of belligerence
Or indifference
Makes them go higher ๐Ÿš’

It doesn’t matter
All that happens for me
is selfish entitled chatter ๐Ÿ’ฌ๐Ÿ’ฌ๐Ÿ’ฌ๐Ÿ’ค
What happened to the evening
The planned cosy natter?

Nearly a bottle in
and I’m starting to sound
a bit funny ๐Ÿคช
Like the Mad Hatter ๐Ÿ˜œ๐ŸŽฉ
The outlook then isn’t sunny โ›ˆโšก๐ŸŒฉ

“Why are you in such a hurry
to leave?” I say
“I’m trying to tell you
What was it again?โ“โ‰๏ธ๐Ÿ˜•

As I was trying to say
Doesn’t anyone care how I feel?๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ข
I mean what’s the deal?!!!??? ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿคฌ”

Yes my husband patiently replies ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ˜’
but those feelings aren’t real
I mean you do know don’t you
That alcohol lies? ๐Ÿคฅ

As I put down my glass
when I’ve drained my drink
I will start to wearily think ๐Ÿค”
What happened to the relaxing night?
This could end up in a shouty fight ๐ŸฅŠ
Over who’s wrong and who’s right
And I’ll wish I’d stayed sober
This October ๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ˜๐ŸŽƒ
Not to mention the
hellish hangover๐Ÿค•๐Ÿคข๐Ÿคฎ
