A Poem for Your Thoughs pt. 1

"i shot the lights out too"

i shot the lights out
on a million girls
when i should have stayed
balancing things
i could not save
born coward, taught slave
to be a fool
nourished on fears
and afraid


i am lying alone
in a castle of bones
under a blanket
time to go
close the door
 leave me because i have only the one shot left
and i shot the lights out already


-Ryan Adams "Infinity Blues"

These are my favorite parts of the poem.  Perhaps it's literary blasphemy to only quote parts, but I don't mind.
