Sincerest apologies

To my dearest friends,
I've left you forsaken in that underworld
I've let you become another dusty corner
In a world where apathy reigns
I didn't mean to... you see,
Life grabbed me by the toes and
... excuses
To forsake you is to give to another
and there's only so much time in a day
only so much space in my brain
and as time slips beyond my reach
I look at you, you made time enough to make it
to my wooden shelf
And there I let you lay
The remains of a life not yet lived
the wasted words of discovery
How could I ever leave you?
My drunken bedfellows and bosom buddies,
Waiting, as steadfast as I.
