Blank Pages
Garnished Wages
Singing my story
For what seems to be ages.

Can’t love, Can’t Fight
Can’t sleep half the night.
Can’t rhyme, Can’t run,
Should I stop and be done?

“Don’t worry, be happy” –
Scream it in the silence a little more –
Smoke exits the door
And I feel like a whore
Who sells his lines
In the best and worst of times
to pay for his needs
and dirty dirty deeds.

Clap and Stay for an encore,
Leave with the one by the door;
Wake in the middle of the night
Leave before the light.

Write when I get home
Recharge my phone
Wait to do it again
The cycle doesn’t end
