Its just my current situation, so theres no title.

Here I sit at home at night
Drinking beer while nothing seems right.
I listen to the same French song
This has been going on much too long.

With poetry I feel that I begin nearly
To see some things a little more clearly
My mind and the page are a powerful fusion
Or perhaps they are no more than a common illusion

I feel my path is no longer pure
But as to why I'm not so sure.
So I feel all that I do now is a sin.
But still, I long for my life to begin…

    Graham, thanks kindly for your comments on Six Sixty Six. It's for the contest of for numbers by Deborah Guzzi. I have no fears about writing about anything as I am a something that's everywhere. I so enjoy writing listening to music with a small drink, just koolio >> James

    Hi Graham, alcohol and music, a lethal combination for me, I do far too much thinking. Love that line - 'my mind and the page are a powerful fusion'. I be sure to look up that song. (Just one edit if you don't mind me saying - im / I'm) Enjoyed the read, thanks ~ Sharon :)
