Set Dates

A Poem by Skal

Unexpected Expectations

A window of hope for set dates. Plans made when the mind was not straight. Happy promises that will leave deeper holes. No security from the misery of today. Tomorrow is worse save for it's closeness to the promised dates. The day comes and expectations aren't met. The pain is greater now since the day was to be an escape. Sad state. The following day set that rope strong. Like a drying cloth and your legs dangle so. Misery ends but so does yourself and your soul.
