Father Time Never Loses by J.J. Campbell

those quiet moments
alone, wallowing in
your own tears

picturing your death
like some shitty
hollywood movie

just another tragedy
oblivious to the
world

choking on the smoke
of your youth

father time never loses

those quiet moments
alone, fighting
temptation

hide the knives and
the hose

look in the mirror
and count all the
times you’ve been
let down

and then ask
yourself

what happens when
it doesn’t get better

J.J. Campbell
J.J. Campbell (1976 – ?) has given up the farm life and is now trapped in suburbia. He’s been widely published over the years, most recently at Dead Snakes, Easy Street, The Stray Branch, Pyrokinection and Horror Sleaze Trash. You can find him most days bitching about only the things he cares about on his highly entertaining blog, evil delights. (http://evildelights.blogspot.com)
