― Charles Bukowski


Tonight's a wasteland of a summer,
the stars come out to play.
The land is going gray and dull
but I'm not here to stay.
I'll travel on familiar roads
that never lead to you.
I stop after a while gone and
almost stumble through.
A gaping hole in front of me
and nothing in between.
This perished space is hidden and
where angels lie unseen.
Falling down a tunnel that is
very deep indeed...
Was not what I intended when
I stumbled upon greed.

About a girl who's looking for excitement and love, but goes about it the wrong way and becomes greedy. However, her guardian angel is waiting to save her:)
~weird, right?

 I think I get what the first line means. When your in summer, you're free. but if it's a wasteland of summer then you abuse that power. :)

  This is somewhat abstract, but still understandable. I can’t get over the opening line. And the ending is nice because it sort of leaves a question. This is definitely my favorite one of your poems so far.
