Daily missive for Wednesday the 28th of October.

Weekly Challenge 25th of October to 1st of November SLOP
All Hallows…

When the veil
Between dimensions
Is thinnest
You might wonder
What is life
But a meaningless,
Daily occurrence.
Such a small thing
A flicker, not even
A power surge
On a recording device
And still,
The world is transformed.
Nothing really changes
But the perception of it.
Is that a miracle?
The fact it can happen
A simple act
The merest shift in
A universe of molecules
And it is made so.
Is that proof of life
And if it is
Do I in fact…live?
I believe I may have,
Once upon a time
Long ago,
When I may have counted
And been found wanting.
Is that all of it?
I was a name
And a number…
But which one
Had precedence…?
We all have tags
And they follow
Wherever we go
Should we lose our selves
Along the way,
And that can happen.
The older we get
Choices diminish
Until there is nothing
Left but the drift
Between one thing
And the other.
A miasma
Where not even the
Spirit of tomorrow
Can protect us
From the ghosts
Of our past.
Listen awhile
And you can hear
Poor old Jacob Marley
Rattling his chains.
Is that proof of death,
Or is this all
Just a temporary
State of mind,
An elaborate fabrication?
If it is
I would rather go blind
Than be denied
A chance
To see what might lie
In wait
Should I prevail,
And find rapprochement
Beyond,
This thin grey veil.
