Middle of Now/here

Image result for old desert road pictures

We’re in the middle of my mind

everywhere I look all these people

talk talk talk talk talkin

aware of the noise

but deaf to the beat

the feeble din bounces around

this hole I’m stranded in

in a state of waiting to begin

whisper at the yelling

syllables weighed down

on my tongue like a sun

the picture fills the black

with non sequitur

evoking rituals

a candle struggles to illuminate

 the middle of my mind

repercussions of all the things

I can no longer hear

the hands of time have wiped away

the scenery

Alas, and lo, and hark

feel the tide forcing its way down

from the middle of my mind

the voices may be clever

But I’m forever

in the middle of my mind

I am the harbinger of tomorrow

I burn like water

blow like the rain

fall like the wind

and drip like the flame

One never knows

what to find

in the middle of my mind

the words take eternity

trapped behind

broken machinations

in the middle of my mind
