sundarcvcLeaves rot underfoot, I push through the Hopeless rain, Marching towards sleep. The climb may be steep, But don't let the apathy creep, For your journey has so far been profound and deep, If you feel like it please do Weep, For your every step forward is a story to be told, For you never know whom you're inspiring So just take the Leap, For now you're in pain, But you have everything to gain. And it's benifits to reap, As all of it is yours to keep!!
You sip your tea Staring at a sky that looks so different As September dies in the distance Setting as a marker for your indecision Perhaps more honey Sticky sweet memories Sensations for a tongue Silent Numbed Tasteless Nothing satisfies Craving bitter dregs instead As twilight turns to evening The cup is resting on the table And the night looks so different As November's waiting to be born Somewhere in the world she lives already Premature to your reality She exists five hours ahead As I try to catch up to nothing Time is a demon Walking to the back door Stepping into the kitchen It looks so different now To my right the living room is empty No furniture to speak of Boxes of another life Piled in the corner Books and other people's dreams Stories never read Poems to strangers Collections of wasted time Notebooks filled with self-indulgence Lovers, ghosts, and fantasies Nothing to build a life upon Words as wedges, walls and bridges Words as match heads Sparking flames of love Flames of anger Fires of passion Of poison Of nonsense Burning down To embers To nothing Leaving only ashes that get caught up With Autumn breezes Blown as kisses From the lips of distant lovers The taste of tea and honey lingers As nothing special Only as something to do A ritual of habit such as sleep I awake to November She was up before the dawn Stepping outside the air is chill A cold cup resting On a table of my discontent Half empty and tasteless Useless Wasted Staring at the dark of morning My life is so different now The sun rises and looks The same as when it sets I walk back into the kitchen And make another cup of tea
