Daily missive breaks into the weekend for Saturday the 15th of July.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive breaks into the weekend for Saturday the 15th of July.

Be patient
I am lost in
Thankless reverie
Caught between thoughts
In endless competition
For attention.
Neither one nor other
Of the participants
Fully understood
Or accepted.
Unearthing truths
I may have wished buried
Has become a hobby.
Spending too much time
Thinking an excuse
For standing still.
Should I then move on
And if so where.
What does
It mean to re-invest
Is it some kind of test
To prove
I am still breathing.
When all you might think
I want to do is inhale
And drown in hapless
Self-delusion.
I know that I am alone
There is no
Illusion of well-being.
Other people want to see
Things changing.
Not the tears and snot
Of wretched waking
In dead of night
With barely the shadow
Of a memory to hold on to.
This is no cross
Of my own making
Do I lie
Pretend all is well
Never the truth to tell
For fear this pain will
Infect others
With the hurting.
Do I lie alone
In ways much more than one
Or is it all collusion
A silent pact people make
To ignore the truths
Which breed confusion
Live out a lie
Until they give up
Lie down and die.
