No Longer My Sin

 

I thought you noticed,

I thought you understood,

I thought you heard my cry for help,

I thought you knew,

Turns out you don’t know me,

You never will,

I rose from the ashes,

You take your empty packet of pills,

And empty bottle of gin,

I’m moving on,

You are no longer my sin.

A little too much beer

 

I picked five words and attempted to turn them into a poem:

Stagger, indiscriminate, accidental, stale, gloomy

 

Staggering down the lane,

The gloomy night,

The air stale,

So thick it takes your breath away,

Swerving and falling,

Walking into people,

Lamppost and things accidental,

Indiscriminate of creed, sex or colour,

As you cling to the walls and fences,

Hitting the pavement with your head,

Losing a shoe as you try not to fall again,

Maybe I should have stayed for another beer,

Oh please be careful my dear,

As I cling to your hand.
