Tag: thoughtless



Faceless bodies
rushing, pushing
Hurry up and wait
Toying with time
pushing the envelope
knowing it is late
Senseless shopping
Gifts of nonsense
Obligated to buy
Traditions upheld
Always been that way
No one knows why
Tasteless purchases 
of careless choice
The pressure is on
Anything is better
than nothing
Buy before its gone
Windowless world
of the homeless
A far greater need
Ignored, unnoticed
hungry and cold
Someone else can feed
Helpless and harmless
Spare a thought 
for those without
The gift of giving
is good for the soul
It’s what it’s all about

Laura is hosting at D'Verse Poets
tonight and has asked us to consider
when less is more and prompted us with
using one or more of the following:
ageless ~ boundless ~ breathless ~ careless ~
cloudless ~ colourless ~ faceless ~ fearless ~
feckless ~ flawless ~ formless ~ harmless ~
heedless ~ helpless ~ homeless ~ listless ~
needless ~ restless ~ rootless ~ senseless ~
tasteless ~ weightless ~ windowless ~ wordless

Tilting At Windmills


There is an empty place in my soul
Where you once used to live
You have left there long since
As there was no more of me to give

You visit my mind often
Unbeknown to you
You come and go when needed
Until I’m ready to say adieu

I’m trying to comprehend
Where it went so wrong
I know you never understood
Why you’re so headstrong

Independence is worked for
Fierce and won by the brave
Not necessarily to settle a score
And not to enslave

It is achieved so you are not weak
The monsters cannot win
Perhaps that was the problem
To explain, how could I begin

When I found you drowning
Staying afloat under abundant pain
Fending off enemies in your mind
Although always in vain

No one was good enough
To withstand your allegations
Even offering you love
They fell short of your expectations

Love is an understanding 
Not a thing in a box
To be discarded so thoughtlessly
Like a pair of socks

It takes work and communication
On more than one level
Things are not always straight
Sometimes they are bevel

Life is not black and white
There is plenty of grey
To smooth the edges
Of a bruised individual with plenty to say

A different concept for you
Difficult to sustain
Although we did try
Until it became a strain

The enemies in your mind are still there
Acknowledgement makes them stronger
If you would realize they don’t exist
You will be tilting at windmills no longer
