Life hasn’t been easy lately

But when has it ever?

I’ve betrayed the only woman

Who’s been there for me.

I have two lovely daughters who

Probably will resent me if…

They don’t already.

I am a shell that is all that’s left of me.

I’m a broken man holding onto

Something unreal.

I’m in my 30s and I am probably

Making more mistakes now than I ever

Did in my youth.

And Esmie won’t even return my calls.

My heart is nothing but a useless muscle.

My mind is crazed with unhealthy thoughts.

Will I recuperate ever?

I’m just a broken man down on his luck.
