Chasing the wind...

Chasing the wind... - 07/06/19 10:12 AM

Another blank page
An empty mind moment
Unlimited potential
No direction

Earnestly intent
Inspired by the stars
Dark eternal waters
No reflection

Seek deeper meaning
Ponder mortality
Submit to the gods
Be a good friend

Placating poet
Screaming at the heavens
Meaningless effort
Chasing the wind…

I think you are on to a good one here. Let me know if you want me to jump in or if you're taking it to the finish line.

What You Need

Verse
Another blank page
An empty mind.
Unfilled potential
A waste of time.
Placating poet
Regurgitates.
Old readers digest
Jokes of the day.
Chorus
Oh child of the future
You look but don’t see.
The riddle’s no riddle
The truths what you need.
Verse
Seeking a meaning
That isn’t there.
No explanation
Nobody cares.
Screams at the heavens
Falls on deaf ears.
Crops needing water
Beg for his tears.
Chorus
Oh child of the future
You look but don’t see.
The riddle’s no riddle
The truths what you need.
Bridge
Take a long honest look
Into your own mind.
You might just be surprised.
At what you might find.

I like "child of the future". Perhaps a message for the future? smile

Another blank page
my pencil has
suffered a lead ache
My empty mind moment
offers flat brain waves
that only ripple
in useless circles
creating unlimited potential
with no direction.
My hopes are
useless roadkill
where all my
possibilities
play possum.

Earnestly intent
my knitted brow
still believes
in the yarn of your love
Inspired by the stars
but I remain a wanna be
a meteor you
have sent tumbling
Dark eternal waters
offer me no reflections
of two....me and you

I Seek deeper meaning
in this shallow relationship
I Ponder mortality
deep within
my granite headstone
I Submit to the gods
but I have lost
my only goddess
I can't be a good fri-end
because that very word
contains -end

Placating poet
left earthbound
from love's
grandest heights
Screaming at
the heavens
That have vacated
my presence from you
All I do is just
meaningless effort
as I stumble onward
Chasing the wind…
that only sends back
echoes of memories
endlessly repeating
what was swept away
in the chill of your glare.
emptiness is enveloping me
in blank stationary
I am left wordless
without your love....

Just some added thoughts,
Thanks for the challenge. ~Matt

Chasing the wind…

At odds with creation
Yet, I’m still compelled
The spirit guides me
When all logic fails
What will be will be
My heart is always free
I close my eyes an see
Miracles
