ANGELS AND DEMONS
(4/27/14)


I look

I listen

I wait

to experience
those beyond
my ken

I see darkness

I hear silence

almost 55
years old
I hold no great
hope
that they will
ever
manifest themselves
to me

I would love
to have them
around

as benefactors

as scapegoats

as life
and my capabilities
dwindle
some supernatural
finger pointing
might
be a comfort

but
there are
no others

the older
that I get
the more
I am sure
of that fact

there is
only me

my decisions

my actions

to define
this existence

still
at times

I glance
at the sky

at the shadows

for some
pathetic sort

of deliverance
