J.J. Campbell

down this bleak path

get into bed alone
for the thousandth
night in a row

you only keep track
of the days to keep
yourself miserable

just a lazy dreamer
wondering why the
love of your life
has never knocked
on your door

long since failed to
ever learn the lesson
of going out to seek

the stubborn like
to believe it’s a
practice in patience

soon the voices
become mixed
and take you
down this bleak

where you never
have to blame

another lesson

spare the pity
and turn your
hatred inward

shoot out the

no one wants to

see what’s next
