Daily Prompt: #Vague- A Poem

via Daily Prompt: Vague

Vague

In the distance I hear a sound
I’m hypervigilant now
But per the usual.

I jump to my feet,
Startled.
A loafer
Squatting in the cozy cave
That is not my own.

The sound, is it coming closer?
Awakened from my slumber
Still dazed.
Did it gather me
Memory of what happened next so very
Vague.

It’s a daily struggle
I think too much
Therefore
I sleep less
Lie awake more
Then crash

It’s so sad
And reckless
So bad
Yet
Thrilling.

Is the farce believed
Or does they players know the story
You try to hide?
Who are you and are you okay?
Your answers don’t make sense
Your clarity so
Vague.
Are you a main character or are you
Mainly backstage?

Do tell
And in time…
The pain will lessen

The school of thought you tried to teach,
Will be your own nightly lesson.
A refuge from the absurd
A nest for the bird
A lecture for the nerd
But still foggy
Still so
Vague.

Spinning out of control
Losing the grips on the handlebars
And tumbling down
On the mean concrete
Rock bottom
Is near.
The card are falling
And the day to face all your fears
I’m afraid, is near.

The fallout will be severe.
