Ready

I think I am ready to leave now,
to leave nothing behind,
to leave nothing but
the pale taste of failure
in the mouth of the world,
the shadow of a shade
in the blink of an eye.

I think I am ready to leave now,
to leave no one behind,
to leave no one but
this pale image of myself
in the mirror of the world,
the nightmare of a dream
in the wake of its sleep.

I know I am ready to leave now,
to leave it all behind,
to leave nothing but
the pale question of Where?
in the mouth of the road,
the dust of the sands
in the dead of the night.

    • Thank you very much, I appreciate the feedback. It came to me a couple of minutes before I posted it, I actually had to get up in the middle of the night to write it down.
