Misery Loves Company

I’m in good company

With idiots and fools

As they entertain me

By being absolute tools

.

I’m in good company

With idiots and fools

But should I be sorry?

Fuck, I don’t make the rules.

Fools, Faces, and Forgetting Failures

Oh demon alcohol
Sad memories I cannot recall
Who thought I would say
Damn it all and blow it all…

~*~

Play the game of fools and faces

Ambling past with phonetic races

In alleyways and brandy tankards

Spurring girls alongside bastards

This night is thin like a toothache

Pull out wisdoms simply to irritate

Call for the shots of drunken stars

Losing glow against whiskey bars

Swimming thoughts, nausea wave

Heartless vultures scavenge stave

Tipsy slurs of unromantic promise

The one night stand with a premise

Inebriation and foxy lady nictitation

Three cheers for it, cold abnegation

Angel pills of androgen adolescents

High on hell, pubescent punishment

Let’s play the game of fools and faces

Eating pavement and bloodshot gazes

Have a last sip of regret, just to be sure

You’ll forget forget anyways, it’s all a blur.

~*~

Oh demon alcohol
Memories I cannot recall
Who thought I would fall
A slave to demon alcohol?

Foolish Stars

We’re both fools, you and I

Simply looking for some light

Darkness brewing in our cores

But we didn’t want no more

.

We’re both fools, you and I

Whose dead stars had to collide

Thought each other was the answer

To feed away at our leeching cancer

.

We’re both fools, you and I

By the dark we were rendered blind

Thinking the pain could cancel out each other

But all it ever did was make it grow stronger

.

We’re both fools, you and I

But the damage had been done too much

Now we’re a massive black hole, not a force to defy

Sucking out all the light from everything we touch.

Us Clever Fools

Listening, are you stupid or what?
Just using words
No simpleminded person would know…

~*~

“What say you not, my dear?”

You ask precariously, yet somewhat jauntily

From your gilded tongue, cunningly cavalier

Using sugarcoated words, sliding smoothly like honey

I should have noticed that slight slither

Like a snake about to devour its prey, a ruthless predator

But I was broken apart, and apparently deaf

Wishing for any and all company that I never met

And so I talked.

~*~

“What say you not, you idiot?”

Falling to my knees, I ask myself one more time

Equanimity forgotten, heart in a hard clot

Spitting words cathartically, trying to purge the poison in mine

You should not have noticed my vulnerability

You should have walked away, leaving me a piece more whole

But you are edacious, stopping at nothing to have fun at trickery

Preying at us hopeless, rotten, pathetic, affinitic fools

Now I’m at a loss for words.
