CALIFORNIA SUN

Date Written: October 25, 2017

The sun that sets beneath the western skies

Displays the bright fluorescent colored sign

And paint without the dyes to hide the lies

To lure all those the cold had buried blind

The masked façade that dupes the young to dream

And promised beauty yet to reach yanked back

To see cold eyes in faces that had seen

May bring the springing trap across my neck

But how can I return when after all

The life was lived and choices made as planned

To second-guess would mean a certain fall

And further feed the fires for the damned

So live your life without excuses please

Still…think of all the possibilities.

      I had lived there, drawn out from the colder climate. It had called to me from over 3000 miles away.
      Lived a few chapters of my life, then moved back; not all the way back home, but on the east coast.
