TALK IS CHEAP (CARING IS EXPENSIVE)

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Daylight faded early
With the onset of winter
Self-doubts from deepest
Recesses of the mind, crept
In, under cover of darkness

The only light, came from
A nightstand alarm clock
Self-absorption imploded
Like slow-motion destruction
Of a high-rise building

Meanwhile, miscreants
With cast-iron souls
Shamelessly, self-promoted
With, nothing to promote
Headed over the falls
In leaky boats

Blindsided by fear
He died a little everyday
The smile façade
Concealed a grimace
Talk was cheap
Caring was expensive
