a fool's joke

lost another scarred soul today
another woman in my life
who found solace in drugs,
pain and abusive men.

lost another one today and the
second this year, and i can't
figure out why my scarred soul
remains while theirs is lost.

why do i continue to struggle on
with my anguish while their light
has blown out?

lost, but still breathing to scar
some more as they are gone forever,
a fool’s joke to be heard no more.

  1. Can't poke fun at this one... Have you thought about reading yours aloud. I think I'd like this one in your voice. Its real and lacking your sarcasm.
