The Language Of Drunk (Acrostic Poem)

Three sheets to the wind, the boat meanders
Hammered with repeated blows
Euphoric for triumph

Loaded with accessories
Annihilating the blue screen of death
Naggin-bottle, empty and sweaty
Groggy from exhaustion and blows
Under the weather deck
Addicted in a weakened state
Giddy as dusk approaches
Erunk, the past becomes present

Oiled on troubled waters
Fried from battling the waves

Drunk with passion to reach
Rocky land in the far distance
Under the influence
Newcastle, on the horizon
Knowing the safety of the harbor

an imaginative acrostic, I see that you struggled with some of the associations and especially one of the words! Sorry, but Enrunk does not meet the criteria for a word in English. How about [Elated to find no wind]? [Fried from battling the waves?] I think that is a stretch. I'm sure that you can come up with a different phrase. How about [Fried from the heat of alcohol]?
~ Geezer.

It seems that the days and hours that people
are available for chatroom are staggered and
not a good match for most everyone. How about
if everyone just shows up at the door, whenever
they have a few free minutes?
