thirsty but my mouth is always dry
I drink an drink
and taste ad taste
but they never fill me up. I feel
I’m doing something wrong
I can never fix it, can I?
I feel the ghosts of myself
writing love letters still
I never saw another sunrise like I did that April morning
I’ll never watch another
all the stars I made
the scars I left
the hands I held
the dreams I slept
the gold that gleamed
the light that seemed
both endless and never even there…
I’m losing my mind
lonely for some other time
but never mind.

I know this feeling of loneliness. But I don't drink, so my only escape is writing. Great poem. I'm digging it. like Dean Moriarty says in On the Road, which I finally finished and love.
