Reflection, Dejection

Time has slipped away

beyond the walls of the shower

transcended by another day

a total loss of power

What uncontrollable emotions break free

I do not know

Surrounded like a bludgeoned enemy

wounded from head to toe

Court-martialed and set to sentence

the only judge is me

Self-pitied with all the world’s repentence

I’m begging for a jury

I let my life disappear

because I am a coward

No time to lose the fear

of being scourged and scoured

What did the world see

in this lonely, little, sad-soul-eyed,

tired, and hopeless me

Time’s wasted and bitter bride
