In his chair

Images swirl
Like clouds
Amongst intoxicated reality

Small and withered
He always smiles,
So no one thinks 
To worry for him.

He smiles as he knows 
That the image they see 
Is more blurred 
Than any
From his own eyes.

Doesn’t want to say
That he’s slipping,
Slipping away.
And no one cares
Or even notices,
Because he never mentioned pain.
