    they say that
    dancing on a
    sinking ship is
    better than

    being a
    wallflower on
    distant shorelines.
    insistence

    from my own
    close confidants
    confirm common
    knowledge that

    misery
    adores the fools.
    fools who keep her
    company.

    we're all on
    that sinking ship
    or purchasing
    passage. why?

    we're all captains of
    our own loneliness.
    the foolish captain
    must go down
    with the boat.

    Our own attitude can do much to determine our fate. Truth is spoken in these words. Diggin the vibe and the way you posed this.
