A MAN ENCLOSED

Dark.
Brooding.
A creature of the night.
My cloak hides my ugliness,
it protects me from nothing.
No light will shine through.
But I function despite my flaws.
It is because I wish to stay
focused on earning this edifice,
no longer comfortable in this false facade.
Someday, I will shed this skin;
molting,
emerging,
a rebirth worth wearing.
But for now, I remain
dark.

    1. That’s a really good point. I go for distraction too much, I think — instead of just writing it out. Then it festers. That’s no good.

      Yes, there are multiple ways of being tired, some good and some bad. I love being tired from hard work, sweating and being out in the sun. Not too long, of course. But you know what I mean.

      1. I don’t mind hard work, I prefer it to being mentally tired. Trying to get everything on the page, and did I do all I needed to? I’m not OCD (she is) by any stretch, but most times I feel like I’m thinking for two. I’m juggling as best as I can. Just a clown waiting for the circus to get to town!
