Pathetic Figure

Pathetic Figure

A dark grey shadow slowly emerges
from among the closely clustered trees,
followed by the partially hidden figure
of a thin, grimy, sorry-looking man.
I feel sick contempt and shameful disgust
for my weak, pathetic, desperate actions.
I know the word for what I'm doing.
I know the risks of this irrational act.
I know I have devolved into the very
personification of sad, contemptible desperation.
A cheery looking, beautiful, carefree woman
skips down the front steps of her home
in a gleeful, smiling rush of warm, sunny color,
and zips over to the car, her heart pounding with joy,
as she races off to see and embrace her...
The shadow has merged into the blackness
of the moonless night, and the still figure
stands trembling in the chill, silent evening.
Oh god, what have I turned into?
Oh god, it can't be true... Please, no!
