This week went by like a gust of wind. I honestly had to look at a calendar to remember what day. Now, that could be my problematic and deteriorating brain. I am about to turn 60.
But I had a few poems I’ve been adding to my Intermission Poetry collection. Grace has been unfortunately, very busy and tired with her new job. It seems like a cool place that is based in England. I understand her work makes her busy. I realize she is tired. I am too. Two tired old ladies. 🙂
This poem is merely a thought and a second of a moment written down because I write poetry. It’s like fictional characters are simply that – “fictional.” Writing is making up various parts of your heart and mind and placing it on paper. I usually don’t like what I write within an instant after placing the words on the page, but I kind of liked the flow of this one.
So, here is the poem:
My life is a complete and utter lie
I write this letter to let you know
It’s all been make believe
What you have seen and what you now see
Has never really been me
There’s this creature that creeps along the back
Of every word and memory written
They digest and regurgitate up only what is left
My taste it’s like the crumbs left by your feet
If you were the mourning dove
You’d have enjoyed what I had left
But you’re just a shallow lie
That used to sing me to my sleep
And now it’s this nightmare
Every night, and every dream on repeat
I’ll sing this old lullaby my memory to keep
Sorry I told you I’d always be here
Sorry I told you, you’d never be there
But here we are old friends that try so hard
To communicate this formless three words
They’re like blocks of boggled thoughts
Never matching into the slots
Until we both just walk away
Without another word to say
This song just needed to be played after this poem. It’s so much happier and hopeful.
I’ve really been loving Sharou’s stuff. Please go check out his channel and his Soundcloud.
Oy, why do I write such depressing things? I’m working on a cheerier bit of writing. I hope you all like and have a beautiful and lovely day of seeking and searching for what you love.
I love you Gracie! 🙂 ❤
