With an assassin’s thousand-yard stare

short grays dancing in the dim light

inspire an exasperated reflection.

Beckoning the question;

Words vs. Deeds

Youthful exuberance

scantily dressed in possibility

float out of reach,

helium filled word bubbles

in a comic strip

dissipate in regret. Watering the

growing deterioration of forward progress,

the grateful exhale of

life lived in recovery

Words vs Deeds.
