Khaleel Steir (Hartford, Connecticut)
Time To Think
Why is is that my mind floods with pictures and dreams of things I can't have
Another chase has begun. Another foggy path I've chosen to walk down
I feel like a dog chasing a rabbit in a dog race.
Sprinting after something I was never meant to catch.
These damned thoughts bring in hurricane type rain over my head
More floods, flash floods, time to swim through these thoughts again.
Now I find myself stranded on this island, watching my desires sail by
Another fairy-tale looking for a 'Happy Ending'
