I listen as you enjoy your time,
Cackling as you drink your wine,
The gossip flowing from your lips,
Is enough to sink the heartiest of ships.
Admiring as you have a wonderful night,
While I am stuck to relive my plight,
Over and over the darkness looms,
Smirking while I watch my doom.
A long time ago I was once like you,
Every light sparkled like new,
But bad nights would come along,
Blemishing life’s great song.
