Arduous day with work and classes
Driving home in the slippery sleet
Saddening deep thoughts of life
Succumbing to soothing
Shots of hard liquor.
Sitting reflectively while
Staring through the computer screen
Finding a similar face past the still
Sounds of background stridency.
Slightly noticing the sulking of
Slanting shoulders through the
Silence of a numbing black night
Familiar to the tingling in arms.
Eyelids slowly begin shuttering
Solemn smile glints in the glare of a
Stilled obsidian screen as
All life halts in retrospect.
Finishing the bottle
Reminiscence of scowling memories
In hopes to forget the past
Resting sorely on the seductive sheets
Surrounded by the shaded night.
