For OctoPoWriMo Day 1

The Genius Is in the Details

The earth overbalanced

pitched me here

in orbit of my life.

I see clearly

no revisionist’s eyes

truth uncompromised

I lied to myself

the worst deception of all.

 

And let you lie.

 

I dwelled in fantasies

far too many years

when I awakened

a stupid fairy tale maiden

turned slowly saw reality

and death a hair away

 

It’s a pin in a balloon

air sucked from lungs–

Does tomorrow exist?

 

Maybe I’d cling to you

we’d become better

at loving, living

but you’re still on earth

while I’m in orbit so far away.
