There is a dull hum in my brain tonight. Thoughts form quickly and fade just as fast. I stare at a blank wall, not sure what I am looking for Waiting for a good feeling that will last. The space between thought and action Is so wide that I can't make them connect. I realize more and more these days That time is winning and my life's in check. The night will fade into the dawn As it did yesterday and it will tomorrow. But I'm more aware of how my time Isn't free it is just shorter and borrowed.
