I am possessed by a dormant demon!

He is always there, within me.

Sometimes inactive.

I can feel it, but it stays silent.

then, without warning,

it wakes up and creates havoc in my life.

I mean I’m talking about my alcohol addiction.

I can understand,

the devil, as I’ve put it, hasn’t got horns,

the demon lies in a bottle,

That is because I need it, often.

I realise that alcohol changes me completely,

without it, I am well-mannered, educated,

respectable and above all a gentleman.

For ’s sake, I have artistic diplomas

and yet I waste all my talents.

I ask, why, for the sake of alcohol?



I would like to cast away my demon.

Would I though?
