Poor Choice


I don't wanna write right now...
I just wanna enjoy this movie
About a bus driver poet
Poor choice
I should have watched the one about the fashion murder scandal

I don't wanna write right now
I just wanna sip this rioja
13.5% on special offer
Poor choice
I should have had that early night followed by that 5am billionaire mindset wake up call I first heard about from a man on YouTube

I don't wanna write right now
I just wanna text her back
My words are missing
Poor choice
I should have just sent her my truth in that moment , why does it have to be this complicated? Why do I want to appear prefect? I'm not.

I don't wanna write right now
I just wanna pretend it's not happening
But it colours everything
Poor choice
I don't know what else to do but let life continue its course, fucked over is an understatement, time will heal all and crown me victor , but the immediacy of my humiliation slows that ticking clock.

    'About a bus driver poet'
    (Paterson's not just a film
    it's a work of art
    and like all art, it's very
    subjective..
    'in my humble opinion') lol
    really enjoyed the climbing down steps - feel
    of spiralling bad choices your poetry portrayed,
    insightful commentary, aside
    a little introspection and yesteryear musing's..
    a poignant cocktail of poetic melancholy..
    thanks for sharing, a great read..
    (and loved your last three lines_
    'fucked over
    is an understatement, time
    will heal all and crown me victor
    but, the immediacy
    of my humiliation slows: that ticking clock.'
    (don't explode, lol
    Fight, the good fight!
    and write
    write it all out
    imagine each poem
    as saving hundreds
    on a counselling session) lol
