My Life

















I run
A reckless race
At a hectic pace;
A discontent chase
in a twisted maze. 

I feel
The passing days
And parting ways
With every new face
A blurring haze. 

I live
A life in disgrace;
The shallow place;
Cramped in space
Painted in grays. 

I await
The smallest trace
The morning rays
That can efface
My past malaise…

  6. There are days like this that you describe so well.
    And then there is someone or something that suddenly ...
    changes everything! So it seems that the sun shines and the night no longer exists.
    Until next time ...
