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.
