The Melodiousness of Life

A ray of light. A glimmer of hope. A twinkling eye.
These are the things that greet your arrival.
Welcome. It's a brand new day. Wheat bread or rye?
Eating slowly, you think about last night. Convivial.

What's so great about this life you lead?
The fact that it never turns out right?
Or the fact that you're always wrong.
Munching still. Slowly setting in, this life, its plight.

The radio's on, and so is the television.
Messages swamp a deluged brain. Blank and staring.
No life here. No will. Not even a sliver of ambition.
Getting ready for work, now. Blank and staring.

The melodiousness of life. The sweet songs of joy.
No vices, devices, or a silly, life-threatening ploy.
A journey without an end. No knowing where it began.
You crawled, learned to walk...and then you ran.

Punching away...on a keyboard, that is.
No music. Only a staccato tapping. Unnerving.
Four walls, but no windows. Short of breath.
The routine, never stumbling, only subserving.

Glorious days pass you by. You watch, wondering.
What if I could fly, or be an animal, or simply not be.
Where would I go? What would I do? Something. Anything?
But unknowns are scary. Who can I be except you and me?

You're back. You've arrived, again. Weight off your shoulders.
A day wrought with love and affection. The poison of hubris.
Smiling because it's time to. Laughing because they expect it.
Not knowing how or why. The Laws of Existence, an ignominious writ.

The odiousness of life. The sweet memories of waiting...endlessly.
Waiting to receive. Any time now. Outstretched arms tiring...painfully.
This journey brings me back. I haven't gone anywhere. Transfixed.
The ray of light, a hope. Wallowing in the mire. Into depravity, descended.
