Sleight of hand

We live in a world where sleight of hand

is a constant occurrence

and I am not skilled in this form

and self doubt reigns in me.

Close-up, I perceive the cracks, and ruses

and my mind speeds off in countless directions,

journeys of which I no longer wish to be part.

Manipulation mithers me wherever I go.

I hope to beat this curse,

but temporary insanity is winning the day.

I am dark, but shining brightly.
