Daze short poem

Uploaded by Jamin Benjamin

Running scared,
Look behind,
A crazy man,
That look in his eyes.

He seems so driven,
Is he from the past,
Can’t stop to think,
Gaining ground fast.

Over a fence,
Around hidden corners,
Pursuing with madness,
In the night through every corridor.

Out of breath,
Exhaustion becoming costly,
If adrenaline doesn’t kick in,
He will surely leave a body.

Panic again,
A bitter sweet taste,
Swiping at an arm,
Swing back, pick up the pace.

He groans deeply,
Blood on his face,
He falls to the ground,
But up again in a daze.

This is the chance,
Matter of truth,
He must go now,
Or soon it will be you.

Coming back to finish,
He leans against a wall,
His eyes hit the light,
To your knees you fall.

It is the man,
The same one you know well,
Blink to regain your sanity,
Open the mirror and never tell.

A chill rose the morning as the sun danced away While snow chose her fall, — beneath invading gray Frozen for my darling, — a fallen flake she lay Never to drift another, from the heavens in that way Talking

Sunshine haze over milky blue Ocean reflects white horses rolling wave Sea gulls squawk as they glide on warm winds effortlessly, above the port were boatmen slave Splendour azure skies trapping the contours of forests, behind cliffs tallest and brave
