Poetry #49: nowhere to go

	dark shadow of my pen, in wavering candle light
	lead me to a promised land, where words meet wit
	where unabashed i may say as i feel, write as i want
	a place where the clock doesn't hound me, chasing
	life's little unacceptable pleasures par for everyone
	music flows free in all its forms, backing my words
	as if to say i am a lyrical poet, but not
	rather, reprimand me for another misguided soul
	aching by. looking for a sea of tranquility
	to drown in, enjoy a jade shade of pain. bleak
	ending in resolution of a black sheet covered bed
	candle. incense. delirium. solitude. pen and paper
