Drinking by Myself

Drinking by myself
and not for the first time,
my mind filled with dreams
I had in my prime,

the ones I had wished for
but never came true
due to the decisions I made
which I have now come to rue.

I open another bottle
and pour it into my glass
then sit back into my chair
to let the hours pass.

The loneliness does not bother
me anymore
now I am resigned to the fact
you will not be knocking again on my door.
