Destitute

 
Passive segment  
A turn of the corner  
Thing not seen  
What's needed
Not there  
 
Awakening  
 
Seeing  
 
Hearing  
 
Nothing worth more  
A simple step  
out the door  
Everything not the same  
Horizons seeming plain.  
 
Realizing  
 
Need fleeted  
Premise of it  
Cheated  
Plummeting down  
An illusion of life.  
 
Grasping  
 
Holding on  
 
Letting go  
 
Rather quaint  
Knowing what's dear  
Not even close by  
Not even near  
Gone every time.  
 
Days passing  
Nights lapsing  
Dreams coming true  
Nightmares seamless  
Becoming real.  
 
Settled  
 
Not a thought  
Just overcome  
Practical solution  
Needing undone  
Corrupted  
 
A thing that was never there  
 
In the light  
 
Not even bright.  
 
Kept close  
Promises  
Lost communication  
Lost faith  
A dead zone.  
 
Something wanted  
Not needed  
 
A loss to keep  
More to be desired  
To be seen  
To want again  
To need.  
 
Wishing to be there.
