‘lost in space’

nothing i say makes a difference
the words get lost anyway in this
hole i’ve dug myself
it’s deserved, i know
i’m reminded by the way i hear
you curse me out
hurt covers the distance now
inhabits the space love could not
and i’ve lost enough
enough to end this pointless talking.

  1. Hate when I dig myself in that hole we can’t get out of. Amazing we haven’t bumped into one another.

      We might be a mere stone’s throw away…

  2. Great piece, Joe! Liked this one!

  3. Hunter Shea says:

    I’ll be damned if that doesn’t perfectly reflect the way I feel today.

      And you didn’t even need to drink scotch to get there….I hope your day turns better, Hunter!
