Poem: Bitterlong

Risen above


Pathway imperfect save for the ghosts unseen

Amidst the breaks in between the music in my head

A long awaited sleep

After decades of sleeplessness

Brought on

Imposed upon

But sleep

Chaste and chastened

Bound and unbound

But sleep

Dreams disoriented

Ships exploded

Swimmers seeking shore

All the while trying to forget to remember

Where I’m going

Unknown, undetermined, unbeknownst

Where I’m going

Austral winds
African plains

Fanciful thoughts

Wishing I were wealthy but glad I’m not

Oh! To be free from the sake of being me!
