a walk

a walk

I once thought/believed

two was a magic number

the number dreams are circled around

now, one is silence and despair

with flashes between nightmares

heated exchanges in my head

questions burning like heartburn

a form of displacement returns

never knowing which one might strike

or what system shall work.

So I begin my walk

to unravel, to relate

what stands before me

you may kindly call it fate

I call it escape

voices and demons never sleep

you don’t know me and that’s all good

it’s best you don’t for your sake

that’s my kindness trying to shine

compassionate response not required.

With scribbled lines I shared somewhat

the inner structure of myself

accepted without eloquent words

but I gave what I had to give

uncertain yet proud I wrote

now, with mere words I,

from a distance while in the light

exit right.
