Continuously

Leland Michaels 1997 (Johannesburg)



I reside in the unknown,
in states of confusion.
Observing dogs chase their bone,
in a frenzy of delusion.

I reside in a space,
with a space inside me.
As library with no books,
I lay vacant & weak.

Vacantly uninterested,
in the things around me.
Un-interestingly taken,
by anyone amongst me.

I reside in conflict,
a conflict within.
In a time that I,
have no time in.

That which sings to others,
fails to sing in me.
But I cling to my passions,
like a hive to it's queen.

In my mind I stand,
upon the ticking clock's hand.
Pondering my fate.
Continuously..
