Half Bottles in the Night

Half Bottles in the Night by William Bolyard

Clock flashes 1 A.M.
I stare out the window
Wondering where I am
The record scratches
Against its self
Sometimes I feel like I’m in hell
Not with demons
Or odd entities
Just myself
And words on pages
The liquor only helps
Sort through thoughts
Like a bookshelf
Against the rot
I’d write all night
And live all day
To fill the bottle
With what I have to say

The Weight of Love by William Bolyard

We are inevitably
Like black holes
Or broken glass
Pulling each other in
To predetermined ports
Just destine souls
On the journey of life
How lucky we are to share it together
The weight of love is like gravity
It’s heavy and light
At the same time
Pulls you in
Yet gives you the chance to float
Pull me in love
