On This Day, Like Any Other
On a day like any other,
a young man wakes from a deep sleep,
staring dully at the ceiling high overhead,
wondering how this day will pass.
Will it be full of vibrant revelry,
with plastic smiles and apocryphal words,
or will it fade into the cold grey of normalcy?
Wondering just how his facade of perceptions
could have become so estranged from reality,
a wandering shell of tissue, blood and bone,
daring once again to simply hope.
Hope that this day will not be counted away
by the tick-tock of the ever marching clock,
hope that a specific one would share a smile,
that she would crack the never-ending facade
born in a past of darkness,
straining to live a life of light.
On this day, like any other,
that marks another year gone,
marching closer to the transition point
between this life and the next.

Hey John,

So, I'm thinking you wrote it on your Birthday? You have been bored. Things are not turining out the way you had hoped with a Sofa friend maybe...

Time keeps a tickin, who have you become and where are you going, what's going to happen in this mundane world.

I might be totally off. Another great poem, as always. I miss you.

Hey John -- it's great to see you again...  Yes.  Sometimes your poems are quite abstruse.  And I'm notorious for not understanding things.  Yet this poem seems clear to me.  It speaks of the ordinary day perceived by an extraordinary young man -- yourself!  There are a few references I am not quite sure about -- but i think they might be Wiccan...  --Have a great day.  Hope all's well.  --David
