Diet Coke

It’s sad that,

No amount of diet cola,

Will make me feel less sad.


It must be clear to all those taken – I did not take

It must not be heard from those that spoken – I could not speak

This sorrow from the late hours – the sad world remains


You say you taste fresh

But you taste of unripe fruit

You say you’re sugar free

But that can’t be true

This is why I am afraid

When you say I can feel better


I sit in this boarded room

With a wall too dark to see;

I see myself in liquid.

Can there remain alone

The flower deep in dirt;

Sweetness can’t cover bitter.


Gold in this brisk wind of lonely night,

That which bleeds a cold and pompous aroma,

Does not soothe my bitter blood.


I dare not say,

Such heresy in the face of our great lord coca cola,


You shall not writhe me in my sleep from bed this morning with your sugar-free arousals.
