Star signs

I’m leaving the table
These star signs
Didn’t leave me anything
I’m casting my cards
In the fire
All that’s left
Is smoke and desire
And maybe
All it feels like is
Pain
I can’t drink this away
Maybe
Our best days are ahead of us
I’ll stake my claim
My name
I walked in here
With this pain
This hurt
This curse
This shadow on my back
I’ve had enough of that
I’ve had enough of that
I know this curse hurts
The worst
I’m leaving the table
Cast these cards in the fire
Smoke and desire
——
What words ?
What words did you want me to say?
Ho!
I’m not some Holy Ghost
But there is a third party here
I’ll be dammed
If it’s not fear
What words?
Did you want me to say?
Our best days
Are ahead of us …
Still ahead of us…
I walked in here
I’ll walk out
With my name
My zip code
My best days
My best days ….
