Going Forwards – March 2011

Going Forwards

the attention
somehow lit up my life
i checked the bulb
and it was failing
i thought magic was real
i did not realise it was –
just an illusion
vibrancy is not confusion
somehow –
boarding ships
and jumping ships
appeared more exciting –
than relaxing
and just being me
now it is collapsing
and i know i was out to sea
i have no regrets
because why live life like that
we go forwards
and never back

I am a 40 something sometime writer. I live in the South West of the UK but originally I am from Essex.
