I am the shadow on the page

distracted

grit in my minds eye

paining clear sight

I have stumbled

stubbed my good right toe

fallen

into

a

thicket of dense dark thoughts

strangling clear senses

tying me into ‘not’

restraining ‘yes’

denying

the sensible

pathway home

the easy route

has and was

never mine
