a plastic nightsong

A Poem by cl8thegr8


where do you go 
when you try so hard to run 
from yourself 
from the troubles 
and losses 
tired promises 
lies and slander 
love to hate to concentrate 
hate to want the danger 
from one or two 
plus me 
minus you 
when liable leads to hurtful truths 
ecstasy is nothing 
but finding something new 
twice in the limelight 
four steps to sunlight 
behind the dark night 
in clouded view 
longing for the bitterness 
the view that stays askew... 

now i watch 
then i act 
now i'm gone 
not coming around 
and i will face 
the pale night break 
sink to swim 
love to drown....
