Poetry :: Stagnant
07 . 21 . 2003
Watching time wander hourlessly
In a world of circumstantial everything,
I pace myself accordingly,
Partaking of another day
While a tune floats between my ears.
The nights get cold
And all I feel is endlessness.
Insomnia is a friend of mine.
I work to feed its hunger.
Thereís an ever present hue of green
That haunts my inner eye instead.
My imagination runs without a winded breath.
I try to keep up,
Wondering if Iím destined to fade.
And still the tune I hum,
Constant lullaby knocking on my door.
I try to be the good girl,
Who says the right thing,
Who looks the right way,
Who wants to be perfect.
I donít even like that song.
