Sunlight blinds his eyes;
paroled at last.
Don’t follow me,
tay in the past.
You will always be a special friend
But this is now and that was then.
You gave me character,
you made me wise;
But, I’ve outgrown
that deceitful disguise.
Your meaning long expired. I once again, move on.
You only existed to lead me to dawn.
Your anger so volatile,
your passion so rich,
I lead you to fall
into the endless abyss
of nightmarish memories and dreams unfulfilled,
Where wide-eyed restless youth alas, grows to be killed
By the insatiable heart, swollen with emptiness
and festooned with scar;
The heart which catapulted your journey
for that sun above, away so far.
The unreachable sun,
The intangible sun,
The alluring and tempting, orgasmic sun;
The sun which now
Burns through my eyes
Visions of aging terror.
I bid you farewell young man,
……see you in the mirror.
