Unwind- Squiddy Geiger - September 10, 2012

Slowly as he watches here
The bubbles rising in his beer
His heart is broken and aching
Through actions of his own making

He made a mistake, so foolish, he
It angered her, caused her to flee
She'd heard him out, two days later
Thought his betrayal all the greater

He'd gone berserk - well, for him at least
Quaffing the yield of hops and yeast
For others this might seem quite mild
For him five beers was really quite wild

Now that he was sober and caffeine filled
He considered just how much he'd swilled
His aching head was not his friend
The noise in the house? would it end?

But even as he blamed the beer
An idea formed, it caught his ear
His anger ebbed, he could unwind
And realize he'd been truly unkind

Too late now, she'd taken her leave
Naught to do now, but sit and grieve
The loss of a love beyond compare
Take him back? she would not dare

Now he sat and drowned his pain
In kinder ways, with more to gain
He would not get her back, it's true
But someday soon, he'd begin anew
