Those People


I have no more friends.
They have all left me.
Or I left them.
I haven’t decided yet,
If they didn’t like me anymore.
Tossed me out
Like an old, scruffy toy.
Forgotten about me
Like that day we hung out at the park
Three years ago.
They probably forgot.
Or I haven’t decided yet
If I pushed them away.
Tired of the flakiness
Ditching the plans we made
To smoke and drink with other people.
Cooler people.
Not me.
On the surface,
I will smile and laugh when
We get back together
To laugh and reminisce.
But deep down I want to ask why.
Why did you ditch me?
Left me alone,
To my own thoughts.
Thoughts that whisper dark suggestions
Into my ears.
Thank you
Former people I used to know.
We had fun
And if I look back in
10,15,30 years
I will wonder whatever happened
To those people I laughed with.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
