Fait Accompli

my nemesis waits by the door
I sip my drink
in the cellar bar
celebrate momentary escape
from his shadow

but he is patient
knows I soon must emerge
defenseless against his
insistent urgings
as I drive home
to the tune of his whispers
hissing aloneness and despair

even climbing into bed with me
he is bad company
crowds me in my sleep
elbows me into awakeness
when all I want is peace
to rest and dream of possibilities
he says will never come

In your poetry is there great sadness and pain,
I think what I've endured is pretty much the same.
We should both strive to break those chains,
Pick up the phone and let's live again.

There are times when I come across words that are so powerful, so well-tuned ... that anything I say in response would fail miserably ... some of the best writing I've seen here ... I've been sufficiently blown away ... !
