Saturday Night

Saturday Night

A Poem by AaronFreitas
"

This is my lonely Saturday night... choosing no fun.

"

It’s Saturday night 7:26 pm…

I am sitting on my couch all alone.

I’m thinking, deciding on the night.

Do I go out, have fun and live it up?

Or should I sit here and watch Netflix?

Watch, all alone with nothing but a beer….

It sounds depressing but I have no one to share with.

I want to cuddle but I have no partner.

I want to kiss but there’s no woman with me.

I want to feel alive but life is stuck on pause.

What to do, should I sit and wait?

It’s Saturday night, and I am telling a story….

A story of how each night goes, the story of my life.

I guess I’ll choose self-destruction tonight.

Pop open this beer, wrap up this blunt….

Medicate all pains away, clear my mind,

Stare at the t.v. with only a beautiful woman in mind.

I’ll share this moment with no one but myself…

It’s Saturday night, how do the rest of you feel?

The Netflix, the couch, the blunt--the revolving safety blanket prison for the anxious. Wonderful perspective. Fresh in the form, yet so, so familiar. Great write, man, I particularly like the line which includes 'life is stuck on pause', it compliments the scene perfectly.

I think this is how many modern day individuals find themselves... We connect online a bit but tend to have rather solitary lives outside of work.
Relative poetry yet very relatable.
Great work.

or survive... not sure if it is the same thing... I get your meaning however.
A very relatable poem...we all go through nights that are lonely and disappointing.

Certainly been there … substitute a man for a woman and glass of Rose for a beer. Doesn't matter what you are watching … it sucks. Now I meditate and wonderful things come to me:) A bittersweet share, my friend but very well told:)

"Do I go out, have fun and live it up?
Or should I sit here and watch Netflix?"
Those lines I really liked, seeing as I often debate between the two as well!
Tfs! :) x.
