Unfulfilled Excitement   Leave a comment

Unfulfilled Excitement
Forever the bystander
Experiences had by others
While life passes by,
A blur.

A negative experience
Destroys innocence
Disgustedly I only feel
“Why wasn’t it me?”
“Why wasn’t it me?”

Oh no!   Leave a comment

Oh no, I need to write some poetry.
I’m going to try and do it cleverly,
But also with a sense of brevity,
Yes I am going to write some poetry.

Quickly I must write a second verse
Im pressed, but it could be worse.
I could be riding in a herse.
Finally a second verse.

Now we have reached the end.
I gave my brain an awful bend.
It finally broke, so now I shall mend.
Im taking a nap, so here’s the end.

Giving Up (National Poetry Writing Month #28)   Leave a comment

Once again, giving up
The enternal loser chimes in.
Why are you even trying?
You’re never going to win.

I give up again.
I gave up again.

Falling down, covered up
the same puddle of shame
My pessimist just laughs at this
You’ll always be the same

I give up again.
I gave up again.

I guess I have to realize
Im staring a losers eyes.
The pessimist stares back me
Shows the world as grey, unclean.
My winning streak has gone away
The optimist won’t come today.
This pathetic loser is out of luck.
It time that I tried
Giving up.

Clean (National Poetry Writing Month #27)   Leave a comment

Cleanliness
is close to
godliness,
some say
If that
is the case,
I must be
the devil.

Certainty   Leave a comment

Certainty is false
With no absolutes in life,
Keep your mind open.

Infinity (National Poetry Writing Month #25)   Leave a comment

Whirling fire
Long, searing pain
Scorched desire
And loss again.

Unending love
Sweet, soothing rain
I rise above
With hope again

Unyielding life
Unending train
Triumph and strife
Will come again.

My soul will rise
Height, it will gain
With my demise
I’ll rise again.

Infinity
Shall not be slain
In memory
I live again.

Insignificance   Leave a comment

Insignificance:
Just one more drop of water
In an endless sea
