Mist

 

scared

alone

Life blurs past me-

standing still

motionless

in a daze

 

i am broken down

 

it’s not just a flat tyre

or a broken bearing-

i’ve been spinning on the rims

in circles

for ages

without

direction

 

Everyone

blurs past me-

standing still

voiceless

in a daze

 

i scream out

 

No-one hears

 

there is nothing to hear

i have no voice

 

this side

that side

through me

 

They blur on-

headlights on bright

blinding me

not noticing me

no red lights

 

i’m not                         there

i’m   e v   e  r y w  h   e  r   e

but not getting

anywhere

 

 

if only They would see me

just two red lights

 

and a               thud

 

then they would feel me-

scared

alone-

 

but I wouldn’t.
