Friends are just people who haven't let you down yet

People

It’s not hard to forget people.

They hurt you and they

Disappear from your life.

They forget your kindness

And integrity, whatever that means.

I don’t miss anyone anymore

Nor their cruelty.

You’re better off alone.

A lot of truth in this, Craig - how people come and go in our lives. We have all suffered giving to others. And I, in my younger years, took-and-ran with the spoils. I enjoy my autonomy. And I know I'm at my most creative when it's just me in my life. The writer in you, I find, is the closest companion you'll ever know.

A lot of truth and too much whisky. I'm in love with a new muse who loves my cynical poetry, but it's complicated. It always is, of course. She describes herself as a Smoking Drinking Whore. No wonder I'm smitten.

This is a poem that I can so relate to, Craig. Says just enough to make your meaning clear.

It goes too far, but it was written under the influence of whisky. Write drunk, edit sober. It's not all bad, as I have a new muse I'm crazy about who loves my vicious cynical poetry.

Cynical, for sure, Craig, but an outlook I wish I was better at

I always get more cynical for Xmas. That's why Santa gave up giving me hope. I got a kilo of coffee from my mum, though, which I'd swap for the love of a beautiful woman. We all dream.
