I Stray back to reality
With thoughts drifting along
a moment
Breaking into my tempered peace
Of mind
Where guilt and shame
had fought
Their way past admonishing eyes
And cries of anger.
Now no longer buried under fabricated
Smiles
The degradation
seeping from within
Replaces the momentary solace
Of abstraction
With the agony
Of memory.
