barflypoet & author of dark fiction


 

bitter?  yeah, i’ll pour you some bitter.  #barflypoet style…

‘the greatest’

the greatest gift to grant me

would be silence

the greatest treasure

blindness to my eyes

as well a certain measure of antiseptic

for the constant sting

still i marvel over my own stubborn resiliency

i come bouncing back all the time

but i find new ways to taste the acid

new truths within the lies

oh i know you think i’m beneath you

you’ve said so on no uncertain terms

and while you think this world can’t run without you

you’ve not noticed i’ve run from you all this while.
