Fragile Emotions


Gains made in relaxed ease
of evening’s conviviality blown
away in the light of day

there’s no escaping reality
emptiness projects itself with
karma borne of being alone

it is comfort less than disposed
an inevitability grown as each
day weighs your absence

plans proposed dishonoured
in random sweeps of fragile
emotions abandoned
