A Day in the Life...

Posted by Maynerd on January 25, 2006, at 14:27:28

Totally new style for me, so any input good or bad would be of great help to me. I am always trying to experiment with new ways of creating mental images through words.

Screaming alarms going off in his head
Rips him out the land of dreams
He doesn’t want to leave the sweet world of the bed
But reality screaming for him to come
Feet on the floor
Shirt over his head
Brush his teeth then he heads to the door
Reaching for the knob but he hesitates
Is there anything left for him to do?
Dishes are washed and wish list has been made
The bed has been made too
Opens the door
Walks slowly outside
Looks inside on last time before moving on
Grayness overhead feels so overwhelming
Twisting him up into a ball inside
He walks aimlessly around the neighborhood
No where specific he must go
Decides to go to the river
Letting thoughts get lost in the flow
He sits under the bridge
Watching the water flow by
From its birth it knows where it must go
Embraced by nature it never has to ask why
He wishes he was that river
With an ocean waiting for him to come
Instead he is just himself
A broken man that everyone calls dumb
Hopes and dreams gone
Bleeding from the corners of his eyes
Now darkness comes
Time to go back to the world of lies
He walks back to the condemned building he calls his home
Opens the door and staggers to bed
Sleep his only sanctuary
Dreams the place where his soul can roam
