Confused Stranger

Dazed

I’m hazily glaring at the twilight

As if it offers new truths I’m too tired to believe

As if, lost within the steadily growing shadow

I’ll find some emotional release

Release from these troubles

Release from this bubble of moral certainties

And self-destructive needs hiding beneath

Bloodied band-aids

Hastily applied to hide un-healing wounds

From unsympathetic blood-friends

I’m afflicted

Nonexistent friends offer me conflicting advice

Too kind to refuse

I let them abuse and misuse my battered compass

I let them corrupt and infest my fragile innocence

Until only a dim shadow can be seen of what once was

The mirror man’s a Stranger

And because of half-forgotten warnings

I avoid him.

Very good and I could relate even as new themes were introduced.

Am also listening to Dear Whoever's Sound the Trumpet album now so this went rather well with that.

The parts about being too kind to refuse and the mirror man's a stranger were my favorite pauses for it did cause me to pause and think.

Thank you both. Since both of you have written amazing poetry, the fact that you can see value in mine is very flattering. :)
