Linear Loop

One year has passed
since probably the worst day of his life
An unforeseen tragedy
has an added cost
of chronic depression,
more nightmares
and increased unhappiness
Coupled with the loss
of his hair,
his job
and his wife
Five years has passed
since he stared into the dead eyes of his only child
Just a simple slip and fall,
head hit pavement and that was all
As time marches forward,
he keeps reliving the same day
As the clock of life progresses,
his is reset like a groundhog, you could say
While everything around him changes,
he only experience the same recurrence
And as each new day unveils the unknown,
the familiar loop he's endlessly trapped in
is a sad and cruel choosing of his own
