I'm rehashing, revising and salvaging a lot of material. Really I've been trying to revise my overall style/approach. Latest attempt:

I've been reaching again
for something too far away.

It exists, because where would I go without it?
Because I wouldn't spend days and nights
led by some invisible guide.
Because all that's left infront of me
is some strange distance,
some wordless story about a boy
who pencils in the ending on a blank sheet
inside a skull that has mutated beyond his intentions.
We're only strays.
Well, I like it. Easy and natural. "In front" is two words, btw.
