Some poetry for you…..

Standard

All Over Again

You nurture the seed
‘Till a seeding does grow
And you watch and you wait
For the change to a plant
See it flower and fruit
And then watch it die
Collect up the seed
Bag it up when it’s dried
Another year starts
You plant a new seed
And you find yourself
Doing it all over again
And over again
And over again
And you find yourself
Doing it all over again.

Crawl

There’s a tiredness that sleep won’t reach
It’s a tiredness that cannot rest
It will take away your very soul hanging like a puppet
With no master to control your moves
Useless and no direction known

Left crawling on your knees
With echoes of dreams still in your ears
Popping and humming like a siren song
That makes you forget all that you know
But no laudanum has touched your lips
That would be too simple a cure
No, this is a much darker tale
That will leave you wasting in a chair
And watching life run past like fire
