“He Tried To”

 

He tried to

make himself

believe

he was worthy

of more in

his life

then what little

it contained,

tacking up a

lie

on the empty

wall

in front of

him

something he could

stare at

another illusion

in his world

of make believe,

he turns from

the wall

to the window

inserting himself

into the day

without leaving

the room

bypassing the

need

to go outside

to get the

real experience

casually watching

a world walk

past

that he no

longer

is a part of,

the plastic pieces

of a Lego

life

preformed

and constructed

against his will

snapped together

into patterns

that he can’t

conform to

dropped into

situations

where he never

seems to fit

wanting to melt

it all down

and re-pour

the world he

lives in,

he dreams of

average women

having some kind

of presence

in his uneventful

life

willing to settle

for just a

minor appearance,

an unwanted

smile

or a recycled

glance

something to show

him

his shadow was

connected to a

living

breathing

man,

wanting to conquer

his fears

but now only

fighting

to survive

within them

consigned to

the predestine

outcome

of having to

live in a

poor adaption

of a pedestrian

life,

he fortifies his

mind

by telling it

today will be

different

holding on to

that thin thread

of hope

as he steps

out

in to the

light

of an over

worked sun,

disappearing

in the glare

of a normal

day

waiting to be

told

what shape

he has to

try and

contort

himself

in to next…
