J.J. Campbell

these lonesome nights


sometimes these walls

feel like they are closing

in on me


some might think of

that as a nightmare


i consider it a wish


these lonesome nights



looking at the stars

and wondering which

god did i piss off this



and there goes the one

you love


off to go drink in a bar

with all the men you

know you can’t compete



one of these days you’ll

find the courage to tell

her how you feel


perhaps after that bottle

of gin is empty


perhaps after the

ammunition is



perhaps after she walks

out the door once again
