Stream of Consciousness Saturday

Stream of Consciousness Saturday


My eye
is a lonely creature.
Watching as I listen
to the hum of living.
my inner shadows.
My eye
is dim at its centre.
thought crashing against walls.
All this ricocheting
in my head.
What becomes of waking
when sleeping
is the better part of me.
Where is rest
while the clock
is full of ticking.
myself go blind.
That eye
casts no shadow.
That eye
is a lonely creature.
