Stumbling Upon The Great Banquet

playing the keys
to the beat of the song
blairing in my brain

trying
to mend the silence

i get lost
in the music
get lost
in thought

lost

to myself

looking for myself
inside myself

i find the pirates
and the ghosts
and the villains

rooted for
in youth

now dining
with the demons
picked up
along my chosen
path

all nodding
in solidarity
behind twisted smiles
and i know
they will keep
my secrets
safe
