418. Mortal Paths

Another night ‘lone I lie,

And drift the vast path of thought.

Oh, how many years wasted?

Wandering endlessly…

Though, always onward led?

Led unto my own demise;

A maze of my own making.

What a waste of life…of time:

So precious…so finite…

Squandered in verse and rhyme.

I am nothing. Never was.

Mortality haunts my brain.

For I know not where to start,

Nor how to find the worth,

In the pleadings of heart.

Will anyone remember?

Or will everyone forget?

This mortal realm where I walked,…

On paths without ending;

Where all alone I talked…

To you.

“Hello”………………………………………………………….”Goodbye”.

124. Hello….Goodbye

tumblr_n3pgclrWtl1s2msiio1_500

Complicated,

Complex spells,

Tangled in life-spring wells;

Intricately,

Confus’ed,

By sharp unexpected swells.

Ensnarled thick,

And raveled,

In inescapable cells.

Muddled daily.

Confounded,

By swift screams of fare-thee-wells.

28. Hello?

brokenphone

Hello? Can’t you see me?

I’m right over here.

Just open up your eyes and take a little peer.

Hello? Am I invisible or does nobody care about me?

I just walked by you upset, didn’t you see?

Hello? Can’t anyone hear me?

This connection must be bad.

Can’t anybody hear me sob and cry when I’m sad?

Hello? Is anyone out there?

Anyone who cares?

Hello? Is there anyone to fix my hearts’ tears?

Hello? Hello? I’m right here. Hello?

Can’t you see the tear? Why don’t you come near?

Hello?
