A Quest on Overdrive … :)

An eccentric rambler on life's lessons and mercies, found and lost… :)

The Book


Cover to cover
It shall be packed

Words (Duh)
Written on pages
Layered from the
Sloughing of memories
Neatly stacked
Trimmed for good measure
To shape well
What will be shared

I found most excaberating-
The unctuous, eager ones
To be those I so did not want
To write.

The ones that
(Try as I might)
I could not drop into

That day I did not want to fall in love
But did.
That time when indifference singed
That quiet moment, when the world stilled.

They impinge. Demand. Push. Worry.
Till I get them down, in words,
Where they preen for prying eyes…
Each emotion on display
Lapped and leeched by
The eyes that prey.

It’s done now.
Even though I wish I hadn’t.

But then the choice was this:

The Book.

  1. Coming from your Timeline, a-thinking
    To songs from Radio Jango a-linking
    “It’s only words”, says The Book
    With them, your heart it quietly took
    The last two words set my eyes a-blinking!
