Lost in the fog of the world of my own design
Forever reaching for the remnants
Of my darkened shattered mind
I never could come to see
What was right in front of me
Now destined to be blinded by my own insanity
I have this perfect picture that is crumpled in my head
It has been slashed and marked and marred
By the things that I have said
So forgive me for my wrongs please forgive me for my slights
I'm just a lost and broken man too afraid to see the light
For what exists in dark corners in the reaches of my mind
Should never be illuminated by the light I left behind.
An excellent piece Tony. Very astute and captures very poetically the realisation of someone realising their errors and owning them. A strong compelling piece that definitely deserves the nomination. Milly x
I read this in rather a sing song style rhythm. It may have taken away some of your intention, but it meant I couldn't read it a second time without the same thing happening.
I wonder whether your light is still there, to help you move forwards? Maybe seek a new, brighter light..
Nice words, though.
All the best,
