Am I the only one….. who’s ever been lonely?

When you part ways with someone of importance in your life, it often takes a while to get yourself back on track. This poem was written with just such an occurrence in mind.

From the book Memories & Time

stereo on random, volume not close to the max.
a glass of favored wine, yet unable to relax.

the blues causing sadness, mix in a little country.
crank up the volume, smoothing a road so bumpy.

rose colored glasses, a second glass of wine.
becoming more mellow, beginning to unwind.

quick roll in the grass, now clearly, in the garden,
he’ll call her up, beg and plead for her pardon.

a mistake once made, apologies extended,
consequences remain, relationship now ended.

the stereo on random, volume now nearly at the max,
another glass of wine, clearly now he is relaxed.

& it damn shore won’t feed ya.”
