Accelerated Decay

My poetry is rotten like my body,

Scared, scarred, and full of holes.

Deterioration of motivation,

A bargain deal for a soul

 

People pass by I once called friends

With silence and blank stares.

Nothing will matter to me in the end

I’m breathing but not really there.

 

Love is just another verb,

Another song I never wrote.

This life is a symphony of emotion

But I always play the wrong notes.

 

I couldn’t care less about love and sex,

Seeking a permanent fix

My hopes, dreams and ideals are all dead

And people just make me sick

 

Sometimes you get everything

Sometimes you’re left with none

A knock on the door but nobody there

Another fatherless son.

Jack Blare, 2o16
