Random Poem:

Oil Based Portrait

I am falling through pages of gray space
Between wanting and needing.
I sacrifice to find something
To believe in again.
Am I going to fail?
Could I have changed this?
Questions that fade with uncertain answers
That nearly disappear with their own irrelevance.
Fade, fade into the background where
They will surely rise again
With the same lack of certainty or relevance.
As I wage futility.
I see you in gray tones, as I do the leaves.
The scenery flows into you,
And you both mix between
Uncertain boundaries.
