Tender moments seem to come too infrequently
Gaps between human contact expanding
Memories fade
Pain subsides
Senses dull
The ache dissipates into the huge void of space
Till nothingness subdues passion
Anger takes a back seat to disinterest
Tid bits of wisdom sneak in between the cracks of silence
A Jack in my Box
I wonder
Drinking helps me to continue to entertain myself
A Spiritual joker to create a brief moment of a smile
