between the sunrise and the sunset

woke up in the morning
a head extra light
a heart(??) extra heavy

checked my vital signs
they definitely did look fine

"talk to me
dont close the door
listen to me
it gets lonely on this moor",

mused a voice somewhere

kept a guarded silence
ignored the throbbing presence

its just another day
you really can't get away

sometimes its "better best forgotten"
let the trance continue

for sometimes its...
tough to live on philosophy
arduous to sustain on desires
rough to protect the dreams

and its best to
survive on images
of yourself...
of them...
of the things that are...

"hi gal, hows it goin?"
"cool - super cool!"

"the voice somewhere",
is no more beseeching
confused,
you hear a smile
a mix of desolation and patronising...

"oh well,..."
a mental shrug
a wordless hello to my "SX270", comes alive at a mere touch
a quick scan and trash of emails
a coffee mug later...

its just another day
do i really wanna get away???
