photo friday: travel


i wake up
darkness around me
five seconds before the alarm rings
i pretend to not hear
but it comes echoing in my head
in the dungeon of my desires
i long to sink beneath the sheets
to melt with the fresh breath of another twilight
that is another day for me
and the other side of the world
but i have no choice
choices are left for the resilient
and i am not as free
and nothing is altered by staying
so the mist lifts me
as i drag my nerves to rake the cold floor
every step further from tranquility
along with my soul that sleeps with the sound
burning the thread of where i travel
as it denies another window to open
so can you -
help me banish the void
that recurs on the sundown
of my shortened years?
no, i know. there’s nothing
that i can even do
but concede on
and embrace it.

embrace it

photo notes: this post is my entry for this week's PhotoFriday. and since i cant decide on which image to attach the poem i wrote, might as well have them both.

great pics--they convey your poem very well. you also captured that dreadful feeling of having to get up at the crack of dawn when all you want to do is sleep some more. excellent job!
