I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal labotomy

    Selected Poem
Sadness
sadness spilling out
of my hand
running down onto
this page
- alphabet soup-
fingers sorting
and moving words
tears smudging letters
death standing outside
the door
death waiting patiently
inside the bottle
love is torn and ripped
away
there is no truth,
not today anyway
nothing left but
reasons and excuses
and self told lies
seeing nothing but
memories
no tomorrow
this last beer
goes down like broken
glass mixed with sand
she's gone
this sadness is worse
than acid
eating it's way down into
my flesh
poisoning my heart
sinking down into the soul
callous and hardened,
the soul is destroyed
little by little
seeing the life wasted
the days spent
there is no love left
not for this life
no chance
no hope
nothing but these
cold grey cracked walls
and these empty bottles
and this typewriter
and these thoughts
memories and regrets
of how good it could
have been
the most terrible loss
is from the game
that you never really
played.

- Jeremy Smyers
