A lingering goodbye

Time to give away poetry

I’m going to

be another person

in another life

It was great while it lasted

made some sense 

made some nonsense 

cathardis complete

I’ve lambasted 

cause lord knows I do enough. 

But it’s lost it’s lustre and the dead call 

they need their resolutions 

i need my peace 

The snowflakes fall on my shoulders

cant dust them away

kill me quickly 

rather than this slow death.

we are all actors

and the world merely an internet page 

I’m hanging up my pen

i don’t use it any way

a glyph in a pixel 

coding and decoding my life 

and the dead waiting in lines

waiting to tell me the signs 

I sat here thinking 

of nothing but blessingss

and goodbyes

understanding is only half the battle.

Smoothie, I personally dig

Smoothie, I personally dig your writing in all its forms and fashions, but i understand that change is good and if you're feeling it, then go with it. Walk your path and enjoy the scenery and write your truth.  But, rememeber along your way that you may never know who you have touched, doesn't mean you haven't touched...

Peace and blessings, dear poet x

Don't disappear

Your works always resonate so much with me. This stage of life is a strange strange place.

Thank you  ground  x  im a

Thank you  ground  x  im a writer and not a fantastic poet. I love everyone judge no one yet rant injustice. Im a contradiction in terms thats what hungry mind is. It fips and flops and fonds meaning in knowing more than not. Im spiritual as well which ads dimension but looses credibility with some even though they are immersed in spiritual practices just not mine. So im goibg to write articles again and journals. This place has grown cold. So have i. Change is the only constant  perhaps ill change tge way i feel  right now im transferring to another site. It reminfs me of what this site used to be. Open minded and all about the art not so much the message.
