LOAD GAME…

Far away is where I am

A lonely realm of wasted promises to myself

I was gone before you knew it

A story untold before everyone could tell

 

Contaminated my shell

Wasted hours on escaping from its hell

The shadow of a child buried

deep beneath his silent cell

 

& sometimes I forget,

On a short return to regret

How distant the world is

How absent all those that I’ve met

 

How absent I am

A role picked way too soon

How far beyond the life I know

Until it plays its closing tune

 

Far behind is where I am

Never rise & never fall – the cards were dealt

Kept in dark, I never knew it

Laid to rest, a story no one ever tells

  1. I really like the idea of life beyond ones grasp that you’ve been working with lately! Great imagery as always. Hopefully you see this comment as the site seems to be having a seizure today. Anyway great poem!

  2. Your creations always harbingers of powerful raw emotion. Your ink never fails to swipe and grasp my mind. A pleasure, as always.
