So so so, yes I know. It's been too long and time has gone on ...and on.
It's with heavy heart that I must confess -
Life has been a bit of a mess.
Nothing drastic, nothing vile -
Just the usual stuff that happens to most
Kind of consumes us for a while.
Then please continue, go on about your life
See, I'm here! Despite the strife.
And just in case you wondered, or cared
Poetry ain't my strong suit
Really just did it -- on a dare.
