Oblivious

The drunkard grins
from ear to ear

Oblivious to the pain
he inflicts on those
who love him

Numb to the pain
buried six feet under
his cold cold heart

Bartender, bring me a double
That and a grin will
drown all his troubles

I decided to write a second Quadrille with the word “grin” for dVerse Poets Pub.

  1. Death oF heARt..
    SpiRit and miNd
    and body
    balanCinG
    soUL often
    follows
    iN
    paths
    of addiction
    as numb
    soUls
    walk
    as
    living dead..:)
