I Doubt She Will See This

I'm chain-smoking menthol cigarettes
Melancholy and pacing in the parking lot
I stare at the stars thinking of you
Talking to myself barefooted on the warm concrete

I may be taller than you
But I'm here without you 
So where's the bright side in it
Because I don't see one without you

Abandon hope and now I'm just letting myself bleed
Bashing my head on the concrete
I stare at the stars thinking of you
Waiting on the day you come back home

Just never forget your a beautiful angel
No matter what I will always love you 
So don't let your depression win
The cigarettes and alcohol on breath was my lullaby

◄ I'm Drunk It's The Only Time I'm Honest

What a nightly ritual to partake in. Keep pouring your emotions into your writing and the art will only continue to get better with time. Maybe even some wounds can heal a bit, no? Either way, another good one.👍

each to their own Damon - as long as the process of pacing the parking lot provides you with inspiration to write great poetry . . .

Lovely poem Blackery 😊 Btw sometimes we doubt many things when in fact they're out there wondering the same way 😃 Edit "you're" on the first line of last paragraph😉

This poem is actually based on what I do every night from 11 to 12.

love that last line Damon. I hope you don't mind but I tinkered with your poem and took out some of the miss you / love you lines which I believe don't add anything. Here's what I got which I also think is the essence of your poem and shows how your writing has real guts and depth when freed from the miss you's and love you's etc. These are still your own words and I think they are fab. Keep writing and experimenting Damon - you have something worth encouraging. Col.
