Ennui

What's today but one more wasted breath

over and over again?

So today I chain smoke cigarettes

because that's what keeps me breathing.

What's tomorrow? Another time to think

about what I might be missing.

Maybe there's some truth in the hypocrisy

another wasted life, just one more pill to swallow.

And counting the days by the minutes I lost

and hours spent doing nothing.

If I only had more time, maybe

I wouldn't want to kill it.
