I have a creeping guilt.

So lucid and empty,
I roll my eyes and snort
and scowl effervescent.
Pain deep pitted in my stomach.

I haven’t been there when he’s
needed me
I’ve left him alone
as his eyes grow a deeper and deeper red.

I’ve been blind to sorrow
and love
but not to distaste.

No, not to distaste.

    This is beautiful. It’s funny, but I am that red eyed man right now, and I love this poem. I am going to send it to my you character.

    This reminds me of my fish.
    Sad really. But honest.

    This is about my little brother.
