You’re the worst thing in the world

the longest and shortest month

Just a month of many
I’ve reached the point where I count down
not up

Never had time fly
so excruciatingly slowly
and too quickly at
the same time

as this longest
and shortest month
has passed

happiness I haven’t known
for many years

returns

with a name
new to me

with brushstrokes
she’s painted
her name
on my heart

Bartender

serve another please
it’s too early to be drinking

we walked

we danced briefly

bartender
serve another please
it’s too early to be drinking

let it go
let it go

who knows
I walk through this tunnel
my past haunting today

my future unsure
it’s probably the alcohol

talking

bartender,

serve another please

By your side
