Into The Headlights

To live non-affirming

to live not at all

To hide in the shadows

and creep down the hall


To live uncommitted

new doubts to contend

All time intermittent

repressed till the end


To live without friendship

alone on the rock

A wandering echo

reflections that mock


To live undecided

with doubt your best friend

a future derided

—the present pretend


(Dreamsleep: November, 2022)
