Reluctant Feet

Shadows of no-hopers stretch,
escaping from the platform lights,
A stage where pride and egos dance,
where hearts will leash and cage their fight,
But all too soon I'll be the last,
still waiting on into the night.

Leaves play dead upon the tracks,
witnesses of goodbye sorrows,
Reluctant feet climb Station Bridge,
chorusing metallic echoes,
And though you left so long ago,
I'll wait for you again tomorrow.

The Grace To Be Ashamed

Bellicose actions destroy serenity,
I revert to my default setting,
An emotionless illusion,
A figment, just a hairs length out of reach,
Where you've always wanted me,
My need for you, chaste and tamed.

Thin cracks spider the sheltering veneer,
A brand new glimpse at lucid skies,
Mind now clear of all ambition,
I possess the grace to be ashamed.
Please, don't look at me,
Your potent gaze makes me ugly.

You make me nothing.
I don't deserve the love and light,
Second chances are for hopers and dreamers,
For wish-makers and the believers.
It's not just words you put in my mouth 
These pills are all that matter now.
