Late Night Drinks


I told him
but I lost him
and Matt too.

Now I have nothing.
Isn't that great?
I've nothing to win
and nothing left to lose.

I called him
but he forgot
and so did Matt.

I am here now
late at night
drinking glass
after glass of whiskey
and I've forgotten
as well.

They told me
and I resisted
for they've already lost me
to the late night drinks.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
