Solitary Sport

I found someone whose heart

Holds as much despair as mine

We met at the bottom

Of a bottle of wine

We could drink it all

But drown anyway

Because drinking the sea

Wouldn’t ease the pain

We could stay together

But together we won’t be

It’s a solitary sport

This degree of misery

So while we’re both alone

I’ll be missing you

You missing me

Thinking of the nights we shared

Vague memories

I’ll think back 

And wonder

How it got this way

Think back, wonder

If I could have made you stay
