1.

 

Scattered shards of being,
strewn here, there.

Fragmented memories, rootless,
piercing everyday.

 

2.

 

Eternally exiled,
a cast-away on the edge of sanity,

incapable of remaining,
at rest,

yet unable to depart,

with no shore beckoning,

no voice calling.

 

3.

 

Eternally exiled,
promises of tomorrow,
squandered,

leaving a meagre pittance,
on which to cling.

 

4.

 

Eternally exiled,
regrets of years drowned,

vanished,

devoured by ceaseless whirlpools.

 

5.

 

Eternally exiled,

aching to shed,
wounded yesterdays,

yet,

condemned by memory to live yesterday today,

tomorrow.

 

6.

 

Eternally exiled,
no home exists,

but this momentary place,

 

fleeting, insecure, unsure,

 

a permanent abode,

of the eternal exile
