One day follows

another without fail

and I’m still stuck

here chasing my tail.

There’s nothing of promise

I can see on my horizon

but then again

that’s not really surprising.

I have locked myself away

from everyone’s eyes

no longer able to come up

with any more plausible lies.

My excuses have all passed

their sell by date

and now I believe I must

accept my fate.

The future I had envisaged

was a fantasy

and now I am left to drown

in my own apathy.
