She’d made up her mind… (poetry at 2:30 a.m)

“she made up her mind”

She’d made up her mind,
same time,
in the last couple of months,
no cheap stunt,
The addition of hard times
lengthening long lines,
that wore down the break pad,
busted the break
metal on metal shower sparks will forsake
guess it’s time to admit
as bad as it gets
I keep hoping that it’s all just a dream.

Never wanting to see that you could leave,
like water through a net or gold nuggets in a sieve,
While I’m too crippled to pursue,
The girl that played the part of you
No tears, no tears, I swore no tears
but i can’t smile either and I can’t work the gears
And I’m scared and alone and it’s getting too dark
and my lighter is busted and my confidence shot
So it’s quiet round here, I’m left to myself
Just stuck in a box and the box on a shelf

She’d made up her mind,
same time,
in the last couple of months,
no cheap stunt,
The addition of hard times
lengthening long lines,
that wore down the break pad,
busted the break
metal on metal shower sparks will forsake
guess it’s time to admit
as bad as it gets
I keep hoping that it’s all just a dream.

Alone again and the night is quiet like death. Anything I can add would be immaterial. I’m feeling like a black hat fellow waiting to go back to being unnoticed. Maybe going out for a long walk will do me good. No sleep tonight. This is not a good night to lay awake staring at the ceiling. Get me my scissors.

THIS IS WITHOUT A DOUBT ONE OF THE WORST POEMS I’VE EVER WRITTEN. Sorry.

  1. I stand by what I said. Worst poem I’ve ever written. Why someone keeps looking at this is beyond me. All that aside, I do enjoy rereading it.
