barflypoet & author of dark fiction

The latest for my #whatpainsyouproject
a poem for an anonymous reader and their pain…

I hope after reading this you’ll find a little more peace.

‘he loved a girl’

and these demons will only fuel you
as you grip the neck of rage
infidelity burning your throat
along with the bile you long to purge


suffer no longer
the transparency of these bottles
their lies ringing the bar top
hold instead the love
that looks to you now for guidance

not the tepid bills you squander
from the linings of your wallet.
