*A Mistake*

A mistake.
Being left alone
while the gaze
wanders
behind the unknown scenery.
Alone,
within an unsound crowd
among the unusual friends
calling on
inviting
into a strange ward,
into the hall of darkness.
A society
promoting the weird gathering
telling about the life
that belongs to the other side.
The unhappy one.

A mistake.
Being left alone
with my sizzling thoughts.
Alone with my thoughts
I’m in a bad company.
