“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!

fin. ❤
