“Answers” By: Janet Manzo

You ask yourself and you’re not sure
what all this
is really for
you want to sleep
but it won’t come
your mind is tired
but still must wonder some
until exhaustion comes creeping in
but even then you do not liberate it
the thoughts follow you
in your dreams
where you feel
you’re approaching answers
however vague and indefinite
they may seem
there they are
they linger still
a feeling so free
coming nearer to the truth
your mind will fight
so real yet outside your grasp
can’t let it escape
following this light
now morning comes on
and you lose it all
what was next to you
farther than ever before
until the next time
you can’t come close
these creeping, fading thoughts
which are ghosts
