Shards of rage and jealousy
pain’s disposition a lasting bequest
Edvard Munch’s The Scream
Rage and jealousy lie buried together
Some of you will worry, so I feel compelled to add that this is not about me or my family.

Danke sehr, liebe Freundin
That’s a happy outcome, dear Kenny. Thanks so much for the comment.
Wünsche dir eine glückliche gute Woche liebe Grüße und Freundschaft.Gislinde
My recovery from drinking alcohol lasted less than a minuet, painless with no regrets. i was never a stupefied alcoholic with devils in my head !!!
I like the second poem,
be well my lovely friend
Thank you, Ian. For some reason, it reminds me of Androgoth’s stories – the foul buried under the seeming-fair.
I enjoyed both those writings Monica, the second one is very straight to the point, which I can appreciate, it tells of the living torment after recovery, well written.
Thank you, Bluebee. It’s true – there’s no doubt. What I seem to be struggling with is that underneath the appearance of wellness, there’s something terrible lying in wait. Like a nightmare but a waking reality. The only option seems to be to hightail it away as fast as possible.
“Recovery Uncovered” is an effective compression of language with a punch, like the pain that you describe so well in these lines:
“pain’s disposition a lasting bequest
recovery uncovered – life’s unwelcome guest”
Addiction is such a terrible thing for a person and those that love them, but I feel that one cannot help the addict beyond the lengths they wish to go to help themselves.
