Photos of Barbie Angell by Rodney Smith - Tempus Fugit Design © 2013

today has been the longest week,

this month, it seems, has been a year.

there’s no escape and no reprieve,

no place to be that isn’t here.

i cannot run.  i cannot hide

from all that plays upon my brain.

it seems i just won’t leave my side.

my waking dreams become a stain.

a self-indulgent state of mind

could never justify the cost.

so here i sit and waste my time,

wrapped inside what i have lost.
