Dignity of a soul

Oh, how platitudes so expose ignorances

By typical and well intending people

Who either lie to themselves or lack experiences

But still, try to compensate for empathy they mimic

All that I once knew, I no longer know- now  

My knowledge feels betrayed as do my emotions

That kinetic spring has lessened its flow

As if my vibrant vein is collapsing

Given the stressed weight of life’s surroundings

Oft I feel lost in the echoes of my own whispers

Returning after not being delivered  

As I- I drift in furtherance of a mindless orbit    

I cling to proverbial straws in a dream midair

Only to wake in a nightmare… still here
