tim's Bits and Pieces - 67. In A Windowless Room

This would not let me sleep this morning until i wrote it down ...

In my windowless room I pace,

While the atomic clock ticks on the wall

I feel time running down my face,

Dripping, heedless and wasted to the floor

Puddles of the past mirror the present

And those I love walk away

Their devotion riddled with caveats and obsession

As my mind, on crystal legs, totters this day

Voices from inside whisper and laugh

Not even the best of pills can save me

I am the dead now, within these smooth walls

Where only the ghosts can see me

Thank you for reading and thanks to those who remain my friends. I love you all.

Wow !  I too felt so much raw emotion in these words and the picture you painted.  I believe many of us can relate to the images you so artfully created.  Thank you for sharing these with us Tim!  And even though it's only through this medium,  I do consider you a friend!  So Friend -  take care of yourself.
