Muddled words in an absurd world.
Dreams shattered, love unfurled.
Addled minds – broken hearts.
Furiously planning in fits and starts.
Upside down in an up-turned boat,
Holding air to stay afloat…
Reaching the sky – hitting the ground.
Running away at the slightest sound.
Muddled words on a clean white page.
Making sense of life at every stage.
