My Lonely Seasons Pass/A Mad World Poem: Christine Ray & S. Francis

A collaboration between Christine of Brave and Reckless and S. Francis of SailorPoet

The days blend, one into the other,

Waking naked into the world, I stare

Into a meaningless blur trying for

Definition with a shave and makeup

Armor to protect from soulless work

Seeping inside these walls to steal

What remains of my fight.  I sleep

Empty in bed, cold featureless sheets

Cover my flesh, only virgin pillows

Wrapped in white, offering contours.

Loneliness like a season failing passage.
