Unfinished - Poem by Patsy Jewell

I wrote a letter I didn't send
I broke a heart I couldn't mend
There was a call I didn't make
There was a message I didn't take
There was a song I didn't write
I almost did...but didn't fight
There's dirty dishes I didn't wash
I brushed my teeth but didn't floss
I stepped out and forgot what for
Started back in but locked the door
Reached for my key but it wasn't there
I looked down, My God, I'm bare
Ran to the back door and let myself in
The way I live is a down right sin
Should make some coffee but I'm too lazy
Sometimes I drive myself out and out crazy.
