Outside the Mosaic


Blinking,
out of focus,
beyond the frame,

hidden very well,
pointing, clicking, snapping,

silhouettes, visions of illusory promise,

squinting,
straining to see,
the slice of reality,

left outside the mosaic

The Nearest Exit

The Exit …

… discarding memories,
suffocating in nostalgia’s throttling grip,

I flee, moment by moment,
away from the now,

seeking, yearning,

chasing phantom clouds of promise,

coveting shrouded whispers of hope,

seducing empty vessels of belonging,

I flee, moment by moment,
away from the now,

seeking, yearning,

lost, alone, torn,

slowly crawling to the nearest exit
