Not Mine

Are you sleeping well?

I kept you up.

You don’t need

Me

Our life

What we made

Well, I was wrong

I left it all

Made what I have

And now

You’re there

I’ve no luxuries

No drugs

To drown

No smokes

To calm

No booze

To numb

Just busy

Busy

Busy

Busy

Busy

Busy

Busy

Busy

Busy

Busy

Busy

Busy

Busy

Busy

Busy

Busy

Busy

Busy

Busy

It’s funny

Because I make

Things

Up.

And I try to fit

Whose idea?

Not

Mine.
