In youth I’ve glimpsed

But with age comes constraint

Days disappear as I stay in time.

Yesterday I played

Outside with my friends

Today they are gone,

Dead, alone….


A black mist swirls

And tempts my anger.

A bloody heart squeezed

Tight in my fist.

An unquenchable thirst

A desire to lust

To be free to enjoy

To taste the delights…..


But then I play,

Its yesterday,

Outside in the yard

With my friends……
