Daily missive for Friday the 22nd of December.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Friday the 22nd of December.

Is this my undoing
Does the haunting
Of dreams that promise 
So much
Spill into waking
Am I spat out
Into daylight
Still possessed
Am I not to be freed
Will there be no waiting
Preparation for living
Is endless
With no demarcation
Will there be peace
In my heart
When reconciliation
Seems ready to begin
Only to be withdrawn
As the fear of
New dawns
Declares itself
A true companion
Hiding in a smile
Truth is inter-changeable
Facts a hindrance
From one day
To the next
There is no redeeming
The past
It is baggage
But not lost property
It is a drain
On resources
Held in storage
Waiting to be claimed
It will eat its way
Through the packaging
Tumble out
Into the light
Holding it back
Will render me powerless
To improvise
As sorrows slip
Through the holes
In my fingers
Perhaps this is the dream
The hell of it
Is the uncertainty
There is no clearing
Or final demand
But there is a cost
To this life
And payment is due.
