And they spoke…

How could I have forgotten

On the endless quest for the light

That darkness would always follow

Lessons to learn

Images to memorize

On our way through this life

We see what we long to

Ignoring the signs,

Dead end streets that leave us wondering the direction

Internal compass in perpetual kitty wampus,

Is that a word I’d often heard to describe the state

Of chaos,

And the birds chatter on branches endlessly,

Yet Poe is no longer around to decipher the script

And I hold up the cardboard sign

Pleading for understanding on a desolate site

and yet they move on like passengers

Locked into the endless 3D screen,

Waiting for a conclusion,

And here I sit in thought wondering….

There they go again

Driving by as the red light changes to green

I am unseen.

Into bushes I will move as the light I sought

Burns too deep,

And I will escape into the night,

Befriended by the darkness

Slipping into the nest

I call home.

Many thoughts moving….a large homeless population in the small city/town that is home…as seasons change….darkness and light battle….I give my thougts to the lost souls near and far.

  1. The reality of things around me has given me another dimension in a way, I like to be light a lot but sometimes you need to embrace the darkness in life and you look in people’s eyes and realize that sometimes they’re really not there at all, always gives pause and makes me wonder….thanks Tre😊

  2. So much to reflect on within these few lines:

    “Internal compass in perpetual kitty wampus,

    Is that a word I’d often heard to describe the state

    Of chaos,

    And the birds chatter on branches endlessly,

    Yet Poe is no longer around to decipher the script”

    This is a somber, yet considerate piece written beautifully. The timing of it is perfect.
