is to begin again,
I feel my life coming to an end.
I feel young,
but age has withered me away.
Silvery tinged skin.
Was the frustration of family,
the only thing that anchored me?
With it gone,
sailing free has broken the dream.
I’d wish for a midlife crisis,
if I could afford the toys,
but the breakdown will have to suffice.
The loss of interest, question, wonder.
Sanity forsakes me.
Boredom relegates me
To less than the sum of my parts,
Roll out the carpet.
