Restless Nights

Restless nights

That you don’t want to spend alone

But going out just feels

Like so much work

It never goes

How you hope it will

You usually end up

Alone at a bar

Wishing something exciting would happen

But instead

You drink beer

And scroll through your phone

While the people around you

Buzz like bees

Happy bee’s

Drunk bees

So many of them

Seem to be enjoying the moment

And resentment sneaks up

A bitterness towards happiness




But the beer helps



Have killed a few hours

And a few drinks

And you’ll find your way home

Just to be

Right where you left

Alone and home


Sleep overtakes you

And tomorrow

You’ll have a chance

To try it again

Maybe tomorrow

Something exciting will happen…
