Short Poems

1. “Whiskey Kisses”
Lips wet with sweet nectar
Love’s elixir poured from the bottle
My heart intoxicated by your kisses
Drinking in every moment with you

2. “Drunk on Life”
Mind buzzing with possibilities
Heart beating with passion
Eyes seeing the beauty in all things
Life is my elixir, my drink of choice

3. “Wine and Dine”
Sipping on a smooth red
Nibbling on savory delights
Conversation flows like the wine
Flirting with the line between buzzed and tipsy

4. “Morning After”
Head throbbing, stomach churning
Regretting last night’s choices
But a cup of coffee and the promise of a new day
May just make it all go away.

Medium Poems

The Bottle

The bottle sits upon the shelf,
A tempting invitation to myself.
Its contents golden, amber hue,
A drink to calm, a drink to soothe.

But with each sip I take in vain,
The bottle’s hold on me remains.
Its liquid warmth, a fleeting friend,
A broken promise in the end.

For as the night wears on and on,
The bottle’s song becomes a mournful song.
Its magic fades, its power wanes,
Leaving me with nothing but regret and pains.

So I’ll leave the bottle on the shelf,
And seek my solace – in myself.

The Drunkard’s Lament

I drink to forget, but alas,
My memories everlast.
With every gulp and every swallow,
The echoes of my past do follow.

I drown my sorrows, but in vain,
For they rise to the surface once again.
I search for peace, but find instead,
An endless cycle of weary dread.

Oh, to escape the grip of drink,
And think with clarity, and to think.
To face my fears, to face my pain,
And rise above them – once again.

For I am stronger than this urge,
To drown myself in a drunken surge.
I will lift my head up high,
And face life’s challenges with a sober eye.

Long Poems

A Drink for Every Emotion

There’s a drink for every emotion,
For when you’re happy, sad, or lost in commotion.
A glass of bubbly for celebrations,
An old fashioned for tough conversations.

When your heart is heavy and you can’t seem to cope,
A cup of tea may give you hope.
If you’re feeling tired and need a pick-me-up,
A strong espresso may fill your cup.

On a summer’s day with the sun beating down,
A cold beer or cider won’t make you frown.
A hot toddy on a winter’s night,
Is the perfect way to make things right.

A glass of wine to calm the nerves,
Or a whiskey neat for when you’ve got the curves.
There’s a drink for every mood and day,
And new cocktails to try, come what may.

But remember, drink with caution,
As too much can lead to lost proportion.
Moderation is the key, believe it or not,
And always drink responsibly, or not at all, if you’d rather not.

So drink up and enjoy, whatever you choose,
Just remember to drink to the ones you love, not to the ones you lose.

The Many Faces of Drink

Drinks pour and glasses clink,
A celebration or a hint of something deep,
To laugh and love, or to drown and weep,
The many faces of drink.

A toast to life, to love and laughter,
With friends and family, a happy ever after,
A sip of champagne, a shot of tequila,
Celebrating milestones, nothing could be sweeter.

A beer after work, unwinding from stress,
A glass of wine with a meal, a moment of finesse,
A martini for the suave and debonair,
A whiskey neat for those with a dare.

But drink can also be a curse,
A demon that will only make things worse,
A bottle or two to hide from pain,
A drink too many to forget in vain.

Alcohol can magnify emotion,
A happy mood turns to commotion,
A sad moment into deep depression,
A regretful act, a loss of possession.

The many faces of drink,
A double-edged sword, one must think,
To enjoy or abuse, to celebrate or refuse,
To drink or not to drink, that is the choice we have to muse.

So drink responsibly and know your limits,
Or abstain altogether, for your own benefits,
For drink has many faces, and it’s up to us to choose,
How we want to enjoy or refuse.
