DRIFTER

 
I feel like I belong to no one
Not even myself
I am within this thin skin
A sensitive beast
An entire empire
Of beasts
Perhaps

Scrambling to get out
Let loose
Be free
But of what?

I feel like within me resides
A city of dread
I sit alone on the streets there
Blind and mute
Amongst and entire
Civilization
Of dark

Waiting on a crumbling curb
For a hand
To take
To take me where?

I feel like being scared
But I know not of what
I walk a tightrope
Unseen, unseeing
Fear is one of those beasts
Here, in the city
Perhaps itís the one

Holding out its hand
