Silver Star - 9,285 Points (October 6,1950 / New Jersey)

Self - Distancing


Shadows stiff and out of sorts, masking life so it can
hide from cruel reality.

Lifeless, standing in the morning sun, attaching itself
to inner feelings and coping without recourse to breaks
in pain.

Distancing self from life as it swallows a being in
despair.

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
