The hold

Alcohol has hold on you that will not let go.
You cried when you told me you it pretty much owns your soul.
You told me you wanted change and you were ready to get right .
But still you turn to the bottle every night.
I see pain in you that you don't see but not only does it hurt you its hurting me.
When you told me you were giving it up I was happier than I had ever been.
But yet you still do it over and over again.
I can't let this ruin who I am.
It has already changed my man.
You make me feel like this is a game and  things will always remain the same .
I guess this has a place in your heart regardless if it tears your world apart.
I am at lost for words but you don't care.
Because you know ill always be there.
I will not worry or cry anymore.
Ill just take it day by day and see what life has in store.
- this is my new life.
