I am trying

Not to be seen

For in this moment

I feel too small;

I see him draped

In a raven shawl,

Effortlessly being one

With the night sky,

But I, on the contrary,

Feel too out there,

Not blending in

With anything at all!

Should I sleep

Two-thirds of

The year away,

And try once again

In the Fall?

  1. Beautifully written as always, and profound as well. I certainly get the part about not blending in with anything at all. Story of my life. Thanks for sharing your immense talent with us, Aaysid. It’s always a pleasure to read your poetry. πŸ™‚
