PEARL ENCRUSTED GATES

PEARL ENCRUSTED GATES

It’s the waiting you see

For something to happen

Or not, as the case may be

This limbo life limps on

Nothing changes

But another day gone

Maybe tomorrow I’ll wake

Without a new ache

And think – ah nothing’s wrong

But the delusion persists,

Or is it illusion?

That a mighty fall awaits

Outside these pearl encrusted gates
