Vigilant

back
then
I was
vigilant, ever waiting
for each freshly dreamed sign
of approaching breakthrough which may restore your life
and you, forever the trickster
ripped my hopes
to shreds
every
time

Out of control

.
   from
     where 
      you stand, 
        you will never 
witness these floating insanities.
        They're so far
      from your
    distant                  
   plain                                          I'm
                                              stuck                   
                                        this  game
                                     is a torture
                           without clear rules or conclusions
                                     to be played
                                          while the
                                             brain's
                                                   out          
               I
         spiral                   
      like a
     careless tightrope walker 
     knowing  even  as  I land 
              there is no-one  
                   at fault 
                    but  
                me
