Shame And Embarrassment

Shame and embarrassment.
Having to explain to people
Why I haven’t got the money
That I owe them, that I swore
They’d get today.
Times like this make me
Want to just die. A real
Swift suicide, no need for
Explanations, no need to
Humiliate myself again.
But my cowardice and my
Addictions keep me here.
Lying and humiliating
Myself again, again and
Whatever, I don’t think I
Can take much more of
