Sputter around daybreak moonlight dances,
Sitting alone in a crowd absorbing everyones glances.
Floating like a tattered leaf in the wind,
Living your life your mental break down begins.
Your reality it seems to you as real,
But hazy clouds are all you really dream and feel.
Stanzas of joy creep quietly into your eyes,
But you turn them away afraid you might just die.
Floundering through each moment like a fish rotting in the sand,
A wave breaks the shore carry you back to water with it’s firm hand.
Up and down the dark sparkling sea dances and rolls,
Adrift you are left there as your tipsy life simply unfolds.
