Diary Entry of a Young Adult

“Last night was a blur

Woke up in a hotel room

Five miles from home

Can’t remember where I started

Don’t know if I was alone

 

Checked out this morning

Ran out as quickly as I could

Eyes were sore

Had a splitting headache

But my heart hurt more

 

Had no luggage

Except the pain my shoulders carried

From the last relationship I had

She ended it four nights ago

Because she fell in love with another lad

 

Just as I had done for the last few days

Went home and stayed

In bed all day

Had a glass of wine for dinner

Headed out again to get wasted away

 

Life is better single

I told myself

But deep down I longed

For a companion or friend

Someone who wouldn’t do me wrong

Again.”
