Conversations with Poets

inspired by Lady Nire
*check out her work on this site :)

sometimes i watch
and
wonder about
how perfectly flawed WE are
born
with a desire
for more than ourselves
a friend
a lover
a soulmate
always something
outside of ourselves
i wonder
and
watch
as i observe
the people
seeking understanding
while running around
blindly
harming themselves
in many a fashion
perhaps
the wrong friends
most likely
the wrong lovers
and
when in a jam
substituting
with eating
drinking
and
smoking
in a failed attempt
to be merry
too much of themselves
spent
for the briefest bliss
all manners
commemorating
that they feel less
than what they are
desiring they are
for shared
commiserating
while truly needing
communion
between
the spirit
and
the soul
i watch as WE sing
our dirges
while blindly trying to cut
the ties
that bind us
all together in the dark
bumping into each other
and
the days that we have left...

Deep meaning of truth we are all guilty of. I don't think we will ever find what we are looking for here on earth. We keep looking but are never completely satisfied. Loved the write. Sandi.

would be like finding the end of the rainbow
only you weren't looking for it
to the surprise of not many days left
shaken and stirred, mixed in a way
of never to be separated again
using the hair to cause texture
on the painting,sprinkled with gold dust
matted and framed, could be put on display
for the other to get jealous and have to repent
haveing a conversation with someone
only no one is there, to tell you if you look bad
or how to use the napkin, at the table of a king
even the swallowing can become hindered at this point. using the straw is of no use, for the chickens like gravel, to massage the feet in
while dipping your brush in the red line
and painting the lips, as they read you a book
and the delight of finding another piece
placed in it's right place, could make it seem real, to the taste, it is apple pie in the oven,
or on the cinnamon sprinkled plate with cream
at the drive-in they gave two spoons, and as we entangle ours in the milk shake, the movie
bleeds into one, like watching it all go by
while the train sits still, or on steel
