But For How Long (POEM)

But For How Long
David S. Nicholson
Feb 7, 2015

Long and twisted desert road.
Faded photo with burned edges.
Clown that smiles and cries inside.
Voice screaming, fractured and tormented.
Desire to be happy and the reality creeping in.
Pain of the flesh hides the pain inside.
Distant memories so like yesterday.
Waters run for wild to calm.
The sun warms my face.
Flowers, not sand beside me.
Happy once again, but for how long?
