I’m tired, so very tired

of love, of so-called life

of all the countless heartaches

and years of endless strife

can’t undo what been done

too late to re-roll the dice

time to pay the penurious piper

but can’t afford the price

the velvet black void beckons

sweetly calls my secret name

offering silence I can rest in

tranquil and godless, free of pain

an endless, empty nothing

to pillow my weary mind

hopes and dreams fizzle out

as I blissfully, beautifully unwind

    • Thank you for the compliment. ☺️
      I don’t have any books. A few years back, I self-published on Amazon, but it was a disappointing experience. I publish short stories and poetry to magazines on occasion, but the majority of my work, I put up on WordPress or my Facebook page.
