The Corner

The shadows fall on every corner,
Coloring the world to remind me of you,
Focused gaze falters as another stranger, another face,
Around the corner, smiles and it resembles you.
This is a journey to redemption,
So many past wrongs to right,
Distractions force a halt; like the memory of a dream
Surface on my mind, your eyes, on a dark night.
Reality is rude, it jerks me wide awake,
A million illusions to walk through,
While life waits on standby,
To be called upon, but nasty dreams flow through.
Another corner to turn on this roundabout life,
Smiling faces, farcical joys and fickle relationships,
They show their concerns, but behind their masks, mere curiosity,

To report to a neighbor, more juicy tidbits.

    farcical joys, fickle relationships… what more is there in today's life?

    Nice poem.

    I guess most people around look for the tidbits to gossip, but there are few who really care. Rightly put, this verse.

    It's that ratio of most to few that's disappointing! Thanks for reading!
