week 484 ~ our words emerge and quickly disappear

with one comment

our words emerge and quickly disappear
into the realm of things forgotten now
like love or a shared history while here
we continue to try not knowing how
this will end reaching for what we can’t see
communication some impossible
intersection of our lives now as we
navigate the impossible maze full
of memories long extinguished how far
can we proceed until there is nowhere
left to go ‘til the journey’s too bizarre
to contemplate because there’s no there there
as you slip away as your wandering mind
unties the stretched-thin cords that used to bind

week 394 ~ braid the strands of life love stress pull ever

with 2 comments

me.394braid the strands of life love stress pull ever
tighter leave no wiggle room for breathing
doubt none for mistakes if you keep running
fast enough you won’t have to think never
stop stumble the end is some place clever
up ahead so remember everything
in case there’s a quiz someday when it’s spring
in the future when days last forever
when there will be time enough to dream will
it occur to you to pause look for an
alternate path untwine the unneeded
strands of your regret to see if there’s still
an outside chance to reinvent the plan
and improvise a better song instead
