State of Mind

by 144Play

As the sun fades from view
I disappear in the darkness
Like a shadow
I am finally detached
From the being that is I 
To be able to walk freely
Free of all worry
To be free to do as I please
Not always doing as others do 
Walking the streets nightly
Capturing one’s artistic virtue
Soliciting mental bodies
Not for profit
Just release
Always giving 
Even if only for ten minutes
Giving pleasure
Whether physical or mental
Leaving the door open to my world
As my inner thoughts
On a journey to expand
Breathing new life 
New souls to this delusional state
For I am just a street peddler
Pedaling my wares 
For someone else’s enjoyment
I am he
The mental street hustler
