bitter old man



each day i sit
and watch the light
drain from your face
into the night

from concious mind
into the deepest sleep
i hear those stutters
of the fear that creep

when my eyes open
as i taste the wake
my first thought is of you
and the next breath you take

as you stumble up
from your lay of state
i cant but wonder
are you punished by fate

left alone
in this barren place
forever cursed
to wear this face

quietly pleading
the morning away
that this may be
your final day
