Looking Glass

I really enjoy looking back through my old Myspace entries.  2007-2008 was a very dark time for me.  Very dark.  I like looking back at my honest thoughts, because they were so real without fear of judgement.  I feel some of my best writing came from those days.  I don’t share much of my creative writing, but I’ve always enjoyed this one.

Titled, as it was titled in the post.  Not really by piece.

Bored and thinking about then.

Current mood:contemplative

Sitting in his room

Sun shining through the window

Can’t remember when he got here

Doesn’t really matter though

He does know back in ’51

He married the love of his life

What he wouldn’t he give

To only relive that night

Instead of the damage

He saw in ’45

Or the drunken fights

When he wasn’t alive

In and out

The strangers come

Knowing his name

One by one

But he always meets them

For the first time

They pat his hand

and he says he’s doing fine

Doesn’t realize where he is

Or where the time has gone

Living in his own world

As he’s been doing for so long

She’s been gone for 30 years

They don’t have the heart to say

And he’ll never realize

The cancer took her away

Because today is yesterday

And tomorrow will be last year

And next week he will be 18

Reliving his greatest fear

In and out

The strangers come

Knowing his name

One by one

But he always meets them

For the first time

They pat his hand

and he says he’s doing fine

Doesn’t realize where he is

Or where the time has gone

Living in his own world

As he’s been doing for so long

Never a familiar face

All he has is the past

Hanging on to long ago

And never wants to ask

But tonight she waits for him

To take him on his way

Back to 1951

No more waiting, no more pain

In and out

The strangers come

Knowing his name

One by one

He’s not there to meet them

But for the first time

They pat his hand

and say he’s doing fine

They know-

He’s finally just fine.
