The Reality of the Morning

The Reality of the Morning

The large black crow caws out his harsh,
croaking signal into the chill morning sky,
echoing through the foggy air, and startling
me awake, seconds before the shrill, pulsing shriek
of the hated alarm clock blasts out its ever-efficient,
obscene screech into my hazy, disoriented head,
and obliging me to reach out a half-numbed,
vibrating, achy hand; flopping it down on the
cold, indifferent, plastic enemy, with its glaring
red letters shouting visually into my blurry, puffy eyes;
wrenching me out of my personal, subconscious
paradise, and shoving me rudely and abruptly into
the cold, sharp, hard-edged world of reality.
The dawn has broken; the new day has begun,
and my heart has resumed its usual routine
of aching, craving, burning desire for "her".
Once again, my mind starts to sizzle, and my chest
starts to squeeze, as all my thoughts fly to her;
filling my fiery head with agonizing loneliness:
"Good morning, whipped weakling and welcome to
another day of icy, sterile indifference from the woman
who once looked at you with a love so intense,
it melted your very soul and sent you soaring
to the moon with pure, passionate, ecstatic joy!
Good morning, obsessed fool... Welcome to Now!"
