Morning time

time to sit

on the side

of your bed

 

time muse

on the night before

and that dame

who stayed

 

and as just left

and you know

it could have been

a better night

 

a better relationship

a more intense encounter

but there you go

that's life

 

it comes and goes

and leaves sometimes

a horrible taste

in the mouth

 

like a night spent

drinking too much

or smoking

or just plain being here

 

as a kid you would

spend this moment

in a prayer mode

you know

 

where you

close you eyes

and put your hands together

and you mutter words

 

which you were taught

by your parents

as they were taught

by their parents

 

and so it went on

but then one day

you stopped it

stopped praying

 

and just sat

on the side of the bed

with a fuzzy

kind of head

 

like now

and nothing

has changed

somehow.
