I keep the shades all drawn against the summer heat as an analogue to acknowledge that once again I recognize when I've been beat. I've not wandered into good luck over these past few years. All the breaks have broken every which way save the ways that should assuage my fears and it hurts my head. Oh, it hurts my head, but it's my soul's purview and I have an extraordinary view. And what of the ones who seem to know the world through airport codes and hotel checkout girls? The desires that they seek fall somewhere in between all those discussions of living the better life. I drank my bank account empty over wasted years. It was the art of misery that clouded my thinking until I believed I was just unlucky. And I know no one can help me if I’m living inside such a broken mindset. I know no one can help if I’m living inside such a broken head. What ever happened to the light that filled my blood and bones with fight? What ever happened to the life I was trying so hard to lead?
