DISCONTENTED

The memory lies shallow.
The ice, it melts so fast.
A cold and distant echo
Of an unforgiving past.

So sweetly swift is the time-line
Misconception has invented.
Wallowing away another day,
Content to be discontented.

A drunken king, holding reign
O'er the providence of sorrow.
Oh, will I ever pay for yesterday,
Selling out on tomorrow.

For the past, merely a memory,
‘Tis a truth I've found alas.
As I see my future, now, so clearly
I in the bottom of this glass.

You do have a way - of putting a very difficult aspect of life into quite eloquent words......

I commend you on the sentiment of this piece,
dark and yet illuminating.

You may be discontented, but reading your work gives me a sense contentment. Reading good poetry every day does that to me.
