My Tablet Shelter

“‘Calmed down through daydreams,
Laying across inside wide empty capsules,

One full stirring moment
Mute shining visions,
Incredible fantasies,
And one lover’s enticing embrace; ”

“Another full paralyzing moment
My sleepless eyes anxiously gaze at myself,
The knowledge of what is real horrifies me,
The lament over what it can never be becomes permanent;

Beating around within my body -and without-,
Craving gravely to tear down my tablet shelter; ”

“Another full weakness…
Moment behind moment…
Pill over pill…
Tracing my life line,
‘Kept me Looking down, for all time,
To remain on track along my retired declining journey; ”

~Yet Not Fate Will Overcome This Mortal Combat
Since Ancient Before I’ve Been Expiring Myself~
