Untitled poetry

Having a grand old time reconnecting with poetry from old notebooks. Here is one from some time ago:

carelessly I have wandered
vision obscured by unguarded thoughts
enshrouded in darkness
entangled in desire

under my feet scarlet coals
burn blisters that threaten to burst
with every step forward
stuck in slow motion

recklessly I have opened
colors evaporated from moments
memories unnoticed, undone
wanting, only shadows truth

endlessly I have cared
pain asphyxiates my thoughts
escape brings promise
of tomorrow
a new day
a new light
hope
