Hiding behind

In the silence, 

Hear me breath, 

Sign of life, 

I am still,

Here. 

Dust motes, 

Dancing in shattered beams of light, 

Falling, 

Like opportunity wasted, 

Through my fingers. 

Elusive, 

Flimsy, 

Ethereal, otherworldly things, 

Fragments of a whole. 

The bigger picture, 

That I was blind to, 

That I could not see, 

Like wood, 

For the trees. 

Chance, 

I had my chance, 

Or did I ?. 

Memories, floating like clouds, 

In a sky where mistakes, 

My mistakes, 

Fall like rain, 

Endless torrent. 

Story of my life. 

Dark, Sullen storm clouds, 

Amber light, 

Fading sun, 

Dusk- into dark, 

Swallows me, 

Hiding my failures behind curtain of stars.
