#Disappear- A Poem

via Daily Prompt: Disappear

Disappear20170411-disappear1

Close call
Almost felt the
Steel.
A date on a cold slab
That’s final
So close
Too close to
Disappear

It has been a hard day’s night
Still moving
Barely grooving
When is the other shoe going to drop
Will it be my own undoing
Or the free will of a cop
That brings me to that grand day
That last day
When it all dissipates
And disappears

It gets so hard
The mental anguish
Walking around like a zombie
Sometimes
I forget the language
The words to win
Mind too consumed
Much to my chagrin
It all will evaporate
And
Disappear

I want it to end
The NOISES in my head
The fullness
The complexities of life
I pay it forward
But steal away on the backend
Skimming off the top
To make ends meet
At every turn too close
Nearing the heat
The flame is white hot
Electric, even.
Too close to the edge
For no rhyme nor
Reason.

Running on fumes
Nothing left to give
Just wanting all the ills
To pack up and
Disappear.

In the magic hour
Before the dark
Is eclipsed by the sun
That time when it’s oh so quiet
I fade into me
And try to
Disappear.

I want this me
The one of yesterday
To fade away
Retreat into his fears
And shrivel away and
Disappear.

I missed all the signs
One at a time.
But now I am ready
Starting from now
I want to SHINE.
I want
These garments
These shackles
These problems
These pitfalls
These hardships
To rot away
And
Disappear.

Out damn spot
Will my hands ever be clean?
That stain
The strain
The disdain for you Father
I wish away
To
Disappear.

-Zam Zhinga
