The Punishment Light

at the intersection of
Meeting at the corner of shame and regret.

Serving its purpose
demanding a moment of
from the busy life of
satisfying others

The silence I knowingly avoid
births a moment of reflection
in the mirror hanging down from above.
No cars,
no pedestrians,
no instructions,
on where to turn.
Detached from gratification
Abandoned from convenience
Relinquished from complacency
I am forced to confront self-disgust
Penetrating my bottomless disappointment.
Searching for signs of guidance.
In the aesthetics of time
the light finds me.
Once RED
The cue that induces mental tranquility
Relieved from my secluded reality.

I continue the endless path
no more intersections,
without any merging roads.
No right turns no wrong turns.
Springs newly approaching grass guiding my sides
Leaving all self doubts and uncertainty at the light.
