Out With Another Man

I just got off 
The phone 
And you told me
Youíre getting 
Ready to go out 
With another man.
You hung up on
Me and the line
Went deadAs I conjured up
The image of 
You putting on
Lipstick
And 
Mascara
And looking
Hot like
You always did 
For me.
But for 
Someone else.
We broke up last
Week and now 
You are
ďmoving onĒ
 You say
But Iím not.
I didnít give you
What you 
Wanted with your
Ultimatum
And 
Now Iím dealing
With the ruins 
Of our passions
All gone for now.
But are they?
I donít think so.
Denial 
Is 
A powerful thing
And 
As  I further absorb
The thoughts of 
You smiling 
Seductively with another
Man
My legs feel wobbly
As my nerves shake
Me down
Gut wrenched
And I go to find
A bottle of beer
To numb me.
I listen to sad 
Songs on the car
radio
That seem to 
Drain 
More 
Pain
From me
And flashes 
Of better times
Of us
Rain inside
My 
Head. 
Booze 
Jazzing
My veins
Makes me
Brood
In a 
Mood
That 
Revels
In the belief
That all my
Suffering now
Will
Make
It 
So 
Awesome
When 
We 
Stare into
Each others
Eyes
And
Kiss
And 
Get back 
Like 
We were
Before.
Is this 
Just an
Alcohol
Mirage.
Or 
Ego 
Overdose?
It
Is a 
Story
Remaining
To Be
Told. 

Break Ups

Pain
Drains
Brain.
Remains
Sane (?)
Rains
Arcane
Lanes
Maintain
Gains.

Riddles

Forts
Courts
Reports
Retorts
Contort
Distort
Short
Abort(?)
