Words Come Out

Escape
Words come out and time slips away.
My phrases falter as I weep.
Each moment is a burden today.

The streams of my mind are dry.
Emotion wells up in my heart.
My thoughts are full of sad words.

A love of life comes only briefly.
It leaves me behind despondent.
I try to escape the day’s woes one more time.

In the distance, a bird wings through the sky.
Its feathers are shimmering in the moonlight.
I feel worthless compared to that beauty.
