week 425 ~ what is important really think

with 2 comments

me-425

what is important really think
hard because obsessing about
everything is madness no doubt
kid it will drive you to the brink
of terminal confusion drink
if you must but close your eyes at
the end of the day knowing that
it’s not all up to you no sir
fix what you can then demur
and slip offstage tipping your hat

week 412 ~ I swirl my glass of calm

with 2 comments

me.412I swirl my glass of calm
and drink hoping it will
somehow serve as a balm
I swirl my glass of calm
obligations napalm
time that never stands still
I swirl my glass of calm
and drink hoping it will

week 368 ~ a dream outside my window

with 2 comments

me.368a dream outside my window
hovers in sunlight too bright
I squint try to see it though

odds are it isn’t mine slow
-ly as if drugged I turn right
a dream outside my window

absurd as it is I go
over hopes fading with night
I squint try to see it though

it slips away I won’t show
doubt for it may still alight
a dream outside my window

iridescent in limbo
blindly beautiful in flight
I squint try to see it though

wishing never makes things so
and obligations obscure sight
a dream outside my window
I squint try to see it though
