Excuse Me — Good Night

Drunken flattery
though effusively sincere
tastes of bile and beer, dear
reminiscent of angry sleepless nights
and “cold-shoulder and humble pie”
Torch songs bearing light
for angry tears tearing the lines
you see tonight.
Wanting to help you.
Knowing there is no helping.
Can’t focus any longer
and so, I will be going.

About Sharon

Like anyone who lives long enough, I have experienced great loss and survived. I am convinced that my survival depends on my own participation in creating the reality I am living in, and I am determined to be a thoughtful and active participant/creator. These writings are my way of documenting that creation. As the song goes, "I will survive!" I chose the title Staying Vertical because I find that surviving isn't just staying on my feet physically. Keeping my thoughts and emotions on the vertical plane keeps me alive and moving forward. Thanks for joining me!
