Poem #734

Gray Blanket 

Slowly shuffling back and forth,
              Back
                            And
                                          Forth.
Wandering stiffly through the hall,
              Trying not to feel,
loneliness 
dread 
unsatisfied 
                      Human.
A dark gray blanket smothers the world,
                               Starving the sky of sun with such ease.
S             l           o         w     i        n      g      t    o   a  stop.

I stare through the tall, clear pane,
              And imagine drifting off into the sky,
                             Piercing through the gloom-filled clouds,
                                           Into the bright skies above, full of peace, hope,
                                                        Somewhere were I can finally feel the joy of freedom,
No longer feel the heaviness that
weighs
me

Break away from the tiresome rhythm of life,
             Away from the pursuit of perfection,
                            Away from the sorrow,
                                          Away from the pain,
                                                       Disappearing,
                                                                 Flying away,
                                                                           Gone.
Sigh.

             Back
                            And
                                          Forth.
