#38 of 365 – “caught”



I am not a morning person

a feeling leftover from the past


when I would wake into the bitter air

of being an outcast


I spent years dangling, hanging

on loose threads along the fringe


wishing for the freedom

of being completely unhinged


as it was, I could never

truly get away from my thoughts


eventually found and dragged back

beneath their relentless onslaughts


never able to scale reality’s wall

without getting caught

    Never was a big fan of the first few hours of the day, the first being the hardest; waking up and evaluating all over again where your are and what needs to be done to make it through to the next few hours of peace.
