Not Anymore - Poem by Matt Mondschein

I used to open the door
at Dunkin Doughnuts for a pretty lady
just to have it slammed in my face
not anymore

I used to go to work
work hard like a jerk
then get belittled degraded
not anymore

I used to love the sweet aroma
a fresh scented daffodil
in a morning with dew still on it
not anymore

I used to breathe fresh air
watch the smoke stacks rise up
to the clouds high in the sky
not anymore

I'm losing faith
my breath ceased
I was alive
not anymore
