I am a little intoxicated tonight,
Subdued in spirits I am.
Sadness has left me long ago,
A certain sombre emptiness has taken its place.
I am quite bemused,
Surprised I am by this uninvited numbness.
I have not seen the daylight in days,
In the dungeons of my darkness I have stayed.
Yet I am satisfied,
For having felt more than ever before.
The devils of idleness has taken its course,
My blood has turned sour.
No soothing touch to cure me of my loneliness,
Here I am in loathsome yet whole.
The scars on my hands have long faded,
Just mirages of sadness adorn it’s place.
With the lilt of ol’ Chuck, my sole company;
Here I am sipping on stale whiskey.
Lost in this room as months turned to years,
I lay here, still. Happily forgotten, blissfully my own.
