Lost Weekend

Blink and it’s Monday
Lost weekend
A cavity of darkness
Inhabits my mind
Am I blind?
What of the past two days?
Where are they hid?

Light flashing before my eyes
Friday night dreams
Can’t resolve now at all
The in-betweens
A feeling like vertigo
Hovers above
I’m sick to my soul
As memory taunts me to sleep

Wherefore went Sunday?
Lost weekend
Fall into Monday
No drink to comfort me
Addictions are spent
Yet still this new certainty
Creeps through my soul
That never again I’ll be whole

    I quite like Mondays. They’re usually quiet because all the local kids are in school.

    As an addict, I can totally relate to the “lost weekend.” This is a powerful poem

  5. It is not fair this weird time sucking thing that happens to you free time with the juxtaposition of the time lag that happens when you are doing something you do not want to do/ somewhere you do not want to be (think work)
