Sadness settles in

The day is cool

Jumpers warm

I cannot afford the heater

The night grows tired

As do I

Yet I cannot afford a dinner

The bank balance is on empty

Seven days til I get paid

Not enough money to pay the bills

I said I would never have regrets

Years of money squandered

A deep sadness settles in
