Meter - Trochaic Tetrameter / Cateletic
Rhyme - A-B / A-B
Fate rewarded some who came,
Daily problems quickly solved.
Wisdom thrived in their domain,
Joyful as their lives evolved.
You distorted what you saw,
Public minutes, private years.
Never witness to the flaws,
Hidden turmoil, muted tears.
Eyes, reflecting wrong side up,
Squint through nickelodeans.
Brilliant microscopic dust
Floating through what might have been.
All delusions bring the same,
Different versions of yourself.
Time can't alter what remains,
Single bookend, empty shelf.
