seek out the lord

by on December 4, 2015 :: 0 comments

i learned as a child
the monsters under
my bed were there
to protect me

they failed

much like everyone
else in my childhood

they never explained
in therapy how i was
to move on from that

one asshole said just
get over it and seek
out the lord

i grabbed a pen and
decided to take up
drinking instead

most of my former
friends think of me
as a sociopath now

i almost think
about taking the
time to care but
i’m running low
on vodka

more important
matters are at
hand
