Cheers

It was easier then,
to write, of
defeat, pain, loss,
tears that wouldn’t stop;
easier, to wallow-
in self-pity. In the
lies.
It’ll never get better.
That company sings,
a roaring tune, each
night. Check,
the corner bar.
raise a glass,
to Misery, Failure, Self-
defeat. Yeah,
plenty of company there.
Opens at six am-
has-beens, wannabes,
could’ves, should’ves
served,
daily.

Fallout

Tattered ruins,
an empty shell,
discarded and thrown away.
Spirit drained,
once again.

The ride is over-
it never really began.
Was a moment,
merely-
a lifetime.

Summed in a word,
Lost.

Alone again.
Shunned again.
Ignored again.

This,
pastime.
I will not play.
I will not take the field.

I shall,
for evermore,
be,
the solitary figure.
