Dazed and confused

Posted on Posted in Poetry

I’m missing each day

Looking over my shoulder.

Missing in every way

Tired and much older.

Not so amused.

Dazed and confused.

Why am I looking?

Looking way out ahead.

There’s nothing out there.

It’s here in my head.

I am not amused.

Just dazed and confused.

If my mind isn’t here

Am I not present?

And where is the here?

Life seems not so pleasant.

Am I amused?

No; dazed and confused.

It’s passing me by

And nothing is clear

There’s only today

The blur is the fear.

I was once amused.

Now just dazed and confused.

No presence of mind

And fearing the worst

Not living at all.

It must be a curse.

I’m sure not amused.

Still dazed and confused.

Now mindful again.

Eyes no longer blind.

The fog starts to lift.

Clear focus of mind.

Not amused for a while.

Just dazed and confused.
