Ups and Downs All Around

Ups and Downs All Around

A Poem by Cindy Marietta

Closed curtains and shut doors
loud music and creaky floors. 
Smoke rising
liquid falling
getting higher
tripping down steps. 
Step 1 3 4
2 feet is too far
for two feet to travel. 
Stumble and fumble
dance and sing
party in the head
not the real thing. 
Talking but no one is listening
Listening but no one is talking.
No one is here.
Smoke's away
bottle is empty
pills all gone. 
No one is here.
