Step By Step

Posted: October 22, 2017 in Uncategorized

I can’t ever get what I want when I want it
leaves me edgy and frustrated erodes my sense of humor
gloom grinds down.

Anger and frustration coalesce like red pearls inside a bloated bivalve
I collect them with care to cast before colorblind swine
all clever and sardonic left in the cold arms of anger.

Keeping the one unbroken date with disappointment and discontent
self-analysis can’t salvage this muddled mess
understanding is cold comfort when your future’s been foretold.

You planned things perfectly at the beginning
painstakingly printed precise instructions and followed them step by step
knew before you got here exactly how this would end.

  1. you have measured the steps into forever’s arms
