Family

He’ll watch his old movies

Drink another case

Sit alone in self made seclusion

He holds no delusions

Knows just where he stands – 

Self decayed

Wasted away

Destroyed himself 

His family

Blood shot eyes

Hold no life

No will to live

But hasn’t died

I wanted to stay. 

I’ll try to be strong

But this happened far too long

I’ll try to breathe

But I can no longer see

A hand cut 

On the bottle you broke

Cleaning up messes 

is all I even know 

I wanted you more

Than you ever did

I wanted to stay

But you’d have none of it 

You told me to go

That’s all I know

So now I’m gone

Like you wanted 

All along 

Loner

You say you can’t be 

With me

A loner

You’re meant to be alone

So why would you go

And invite me

Into your home

Night after night we shared

Why was it then 

You didn’t care

For three months you spent 

Your days with me

Still you said we couldn’t be

A loner

You’re meant to be alone

So you do you 

And I’ll do me

We can both be alone

In our separate misery

All you want

Is to want to be alone

All I need 

Is someone to hold 

I don’t need a title 

Or for you to say you’re mine

You don’t like the idea

Of being anything at all

But I can see it in your eyes

See it when you ask if

I’d like to stay the night

So you do you 

And I’ll do me

And I’ll hope to god 

We won’t be alone

In our separate misery
