Out of Place

Falling snow in lamplight glow
Descending crystals magical
Missing more than common ground
Fearing nothing will be found

Estranger than a lonely day
Spirits feign, snickers fake
Anachronistic hints I waste
Reflective leers, out of place
Sidelong cast by eyes mistake
Writing until morning breaks…

Slumber for each chosen line
Lacking heart, fine polish, shine
Go ahead, true help we find
Not Rip Van Winkle losing time
