Life was great
Life was grand
Highly to rate
Never to land

Conversations continued to swell
Experiences began to unfold
All I knew that it is well
Until something became untold

Then it fades away
The silence has taken hold
Life begins to stray
Reading again what is old

Have I been inactive?
Have I done too much?
Have I been overreactive?
Questions in my clutch

Patiently waiting for a reply
As I drone and waste my time
My thoughts lie and do try
While my feelings sour like a lime

My head aches from stress
My emotions grow numb
It's a problem to address
Yet I can ignore it with rum

Coming to terms feels bitter
I should be more matter of fact
Drop my emotions like litter
And learn to be a lot more tact
