Present Tense

Present Tense

I am not a song.

I’m far-away from the reach

of a night drive’s charm

where you fall into the decadence

of a lyric’s perfume.


I am not a saint. 

I’m left to revel in the bonfire of my Faith

as I seek repentance for the sins 

I’ve yet to find commitment for. 


I am not dead. 

I’m a warm body 

waltzing in water;

drowning in codas, looking to find:

the distance to Here...


I Am...Now: Present Tense: Chaos waiting to be deciphered…
