Not in the Mood

From the top of the stairs
She beckons him up.
Opportunity flows,
From an effortless cup

Not abused or in pain
Not confused or a prude
Exposed by shame,
He’s just not in the mood.

Tripping on ghosts
Consumed with regret
He’s not who he should be
It’s so easy to forget

The only embrace
Is a dance with solitude
It doesn’t matter who leads
He’s just not in the mood

His imagined reputation
An unfair expectation

Does anyone care?
Does anyone care?

A lifetime passes
In someone else’s shoes
There’s time to start all over
But he’s just not in the mood

It’s always been
His path to choose
But he’s just not in the mood
