“DIARY OF A LONESOME, OLD, BITTER MAN! 🤗🙂☺😏

“DIARY OF A LONESOME, OLD, BITTER MAN!” a poem. a.k.a.: “Sob-batical Tears!” July 2, 2018 (Monday)

I don’t know much, Honey (pause) ‘cept-THIS-SEEMS (pause)

Like-A-TRICKY-PLACE:

People preaching love and peace – and-non-judgment in my face;

People saying: “THAT HYPOCRITE!” and “Somebody-done-me-wrong!”

It seems that I can’t tell the difference (pause)

Between what’s short or long –

A TV E-

Vangelizer, who-was-preaching-on-adultery –

Was found, in-a-week-with-his-best-friend’s-wife (pause)

She was quite sul-t(e)ry!

When folks start pointing fingers (pause) over all creation,

Their finger pointing-can-come back home – to their own, sweet station!

And-I-really- don’t have (pause)

No place TO GO – except into your arms,

BUT, when I have to dodge those bullets, I hear me some alarms,

That signal such uncertainty and critical refrains,

I must endure, when I’m accused – Accused of all these “stains!”

And, yes, I’m-sure my soul is stained – with-many an-unfortunate-feature,

For I am not much of a man – and even less a creature,

That can withstand – AN ONSLAUGHT, whenever it seems ripe,

To put my lonely, little self – inside your special gripe!

I AIN’T NO BETTER (pause)

THAN ANY OTHER (pause)

MAN YOU HAVE CONCEIVED,

And, it seems that,

REALLY –

All of them – have caused you to be grieved –

And I-surely-don’t-want to trouble you,

ON & ON & ON –

And-I-don’t want to be FOR YOU –

Another silly pawn.

YOU’RE BEAUTIFUL!! – to-me-my-Dear,

As-a-person-and-a-Lover,

And I would NEVER PURPOSELY “blow your salient cover!”

But, if-you-expect-me-to-withstand – such fits time and again,

Well, Honey – I really am – THE LEAST of any man!

I’d rather certain-be-set-beneath – a cursed, rough millstone,

Than trouble you, My Lovely Dear – you-must,

Love-to-be-alone!

About DAZZLED💙

Life is like a bunch of roses. Some sparkle like raindrops. Some fade when there's no sun. Some just fade away in time. Some dance in many colors. Some drop with hanging wings. Some make you fall in love. The beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Life you can be sure of, you will not get out ALIVE.(sorry about that)
