VAIN ARIA

The aria sinking

Even the glory tide can no longer pull me in

The highest of indulgences I am no longer satisfied by

I respond to my love with a dull smile

How can I be enthused by complaisance?

I know these chemicals positive or negative are from the same core

I can conquer challenges

And still have to live once more

Fleeting happiness

Is a intolerable requiem I chant

Knowing there is no true relief while awake

I mistake music for sleep

When I can fully concentrate

Myself away from my own marginal existence

My lot on this earth is impossible

So the poet will never be satisfied while alive

Unless…

His verbal visions materialize
