Vanish


Sometimes the agony,
of being lost in an unfamiliar place,
takes the S off my chest,
and brings forth my kryptonite,
as I walk the city streets in somber.
Contemplating all the shadows lurking,
ready to devour me with one false move,
I look up to see a single star,
moving across the sky,
and slowly tears begin to fall.
Cause beneath the darkness of the night,
lit only by the sign of a liquor mart.
I see nothing.
I feel nothing.
Except the ever approaching fear,
that I would never know anything else,
other than the abandon I feel,
walking these streets at night,
where the only shimmer of my existence,
comes from a single star,
running away from my lonely footsteps as I disappear.
Into the shadows which signify my life in general.
An illusion to the world around me.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
