Excuses of Grandeur

I Sit-
In the darkness,
swaying to the ticking of the clock.
Counting the seconds passing by,
tick tock, tick tock…..

I Sit-
Alone and to myself,
staring aimlessly towards the wall.
Racing thoughts now vanishing,
as by stamina starts to fall….

I Sit-
In my own sanctuary,
toiling with my whimsical ideals.
Playing a game of mental chess,
trying to mask what I feel….

I Sit-
In this recliner,
engulfed by the finest leather.
Asking myself too many questions,
feeling as light as a feather….

I Sit-
Alone in this big house,
avoiding the answers I must find.
There’s nothing more convenient,
than “using” one’s mental state of mind….
