    days on the road

    every day i go to
    everywhere i go to
    everything i do
    everyone tries to take my heart
    everyday on the highway
    everyone smiles it seems
    everyday i get confused
    as to what it means, i no longer can see the inbetween
    i sit at the bar in a smoky screen
    thinking that others are more than they seem 
    the observer the thinker the kind hearted man
    each drink brings me closer to my fantasy land
    i leave with a tip and my hollow dignity
    that tries to filter the sordid reality
    my perjured soul follows behind
    a shadow of reason trying to save my mind
    from my gray hotel room 
    i try to cry 
    yet no teardrops
    will fall from my eyes

    You have a real way with words and express the feelings that we all have had at one time or another. Keep up the great writing!

    Sometimes life is just to hard to make sense of . You work all your life and yet you dont get anywhere it seems . But remember you know who you and you had a hell of a life great poem Marie
