Beautiful Distractions

She’s a beautiful distraction

Hidden beneath the essence

Of brutal happiness,

My daily agendas are

Spavined in a vine like

Rotten flowers that are

Soon to die,

The bitter sweet of

Love and life,

I lose the reality of

Time until it cuts

Me with the reality knife,

Balancing my beloved

Diversion into the

Existence I thrive

Keeps me going

Yet sinking, gasping

For breath hoping

To survive
