Patterns

These old patterns
dance before my eyes
and suddenly I sympathize
with every devil dance
behind my lids.

Spinning faster,
I must muster faith
to douse them quick —
to open eyes
to day’s stark rays,
and finding future fading fast,
place my feet upon
this here and now,
stand fast,
and choose to live.
