Requiem

~

You are barely tasting life

while mine lies regurgitated in a pool of regrets.

It comes down to this, when youth stays behind

and sagging skin reminds you of approaching death,

when love becomes an illusion and a disillusion

after we discover the truth we find

behind lies confused by too much tequila

and bad decisions made while drunk with life.

And we learned to cope and forgot to hope

when clouds seem far in a sky

filled with newness and intricate times

and we adapt… and we adapt,

connected by strings we tied along the way

to keep us from getting lost.

But lost we are not, just simply tired

of looking for sense in a senseless life

that lies regurgitated in a pool of regrets.
