Gently Captured

What shall I do,
When all is pain,
And I can produce
Nothing of value?
What shall I think
When thinking entraps,
Tangled and confused,
In foolish youth lost?
How can I live,
When I feel only
Grief and heartache,
Pain and sorrow?
Shall I run away,
Through the veil,
Beguiled with dreams
And illusions?
Shall I allow
Shimmering wonders
To gently capture me
In illusory pleasure?
When will I find
This dream-like veil?
I wish to be lost
In soothing mysteries.
