Lip service

Lip Service 


It’s hard being alone

at least for me 

I see folks kissing with promise 

smiling with dignity 


love drunk 


cupids arrow is dull

for the most part 

it’s not real 

maybe your elders have stuck it out 

your folks are worn and torn 

a scar 

treated with cheap topical cream 

lip service  


the fear of embarrassment 

once the family gets word 

the party is over 

friends turn to enemies 

uncles take a selfish stand 

families unite against the previous loved one 

such wasted calories 

all in the name of previous trust 



It’s hard being alone 

you miss the feeling you can’t remember 

the touch you’ll never feel 

the dry kiss 

at least for me 

it’s not real
