Lonely, depressed, in the corner of her mind

She sits desolate head deeply bent in anguish

Surrounded by the remnants of her recent past

Her family long since gone from her life

Where can she turn, she is drowning in self pity

No friends come knocking on her hall door

Laughter and toys missing from the playroom floor

Where did it all go wrong, confused, she rocks 

She had promised to stop in a whispering cry

The bottles hidden in every corner, tempting

Shaking she needed the courage to go on

But now all is lost, the terrible cost

Of an alcohol addiction.
