Torn- Squiddy Geiger - July 25, 2012

As he sits     in his house
Wondering    what he has done
To be torn    from his life
And left so    completely
Alone and    depressed
Hoping he    might
Still have    a chance to
Recover    his dignity
Rebuild    his career
Win back    his family
Wishing    forgiveness
Of friends    and coworkers
His lonely    vigil at the
Window    a taste,
Perhaps    how his
Future    will unfold
Bottle    to lips as he
Salutes    the future
Bleak     but it is his
to own
