A Storm-filled Monday

Weekly check in with my brain.

I’ve been mourning today
Not sure why
Every step
Brings shudders and sighs

I held up my face
To the looking glass
Eyes void of light
Two orbs that

Block up rivers
Installing dams
No one can know
Who I am

A tattered soul
Cut off from being
Man in the mirror
What I’m seeing

Barreling down the road
In my old car
Only folks with me
The moon and stars

Night sits like a cloth
Wrapped around my head
Weaving dreams
Of what lies ahead

In dim rooms
Full of smoke and musk
Sometimes consumed
With the scent of lust

I’ve drifted asleep
To another plane
My best way of coping
Remaining sane.
