Eclipsing My Feelings

And Other Words For Lost

Eclipsing My Feelings

Effaced, replaced by the feelings that I'm feeling

Compressed, a mess, needing some gentle healing

Left behind, resigned, exposing what I am concealing

Inconceivably unstable gambling with some double dealing

Passed over, like the mower, feel my skin as it is peeling

Squandered, as I've pondered, while blankly staring at the ceiling

Evading, contemplating, stealing the meaning of my being, all the while holding tightly to the innocence of me
