Slow Monotony

I’m feeling strange and sort of petrified,
like frozen, not afraid.
Preserved in time, a fragment,
of what I could become.

Evening comes and days are through,
’til all begins again.
Getting older every day,
a current, a refrain.

There’s a slow monotony,
short-circuiting my fragile mind.
Passing time seems make-believe,
I’ve had to pause my game.

All goes on and on and on and on,
and on and on again.
I’m tired of rounding circles in,
my current, my refrain.
