A Poem

Here I sit with my glass of desperation on the rocks

Have you lived a favorable life

I don’t blame you for hating me

I’ve never given you the option to love

Could be a long wait

Do you mind

I really need to go

But I must swat this fly

I can’t make out the words

But the door stands open

I thought it might be best

You’ve told your pack of lies

And now the case is closed

Yet your defenses are going up

I need to get to a meeting

I need to be calm and careful

But I’ve forgotten how

I’m glad you understand that

There’s a sadness that cuts me off

God in heaven

Look at that

I’ve got the magic touch

Then there’s nothing left

As the second pass

But silence

sad poetry
