Enthusiasm

Try too hard, I understand

Take a step back, kid.
It ain't easy bein' green.

I’m Stressed
Depressed
But today
I got dressed
Every day
Is bleak and grey
Just like the rest
But today
I got dressed
Today I got dressed
November 7 2021

Every step counts
Not just a bridge
But a vast expanse
Not a straight line
Wherever, whenever
It is time.
Death is emotionless
But it's not quite the end
What is death?
It's not the finality,
But beginning of eternity.
Response to Naceur Ben Mesbah. Inspired by, and a response to his poem titled 'Death.' All credit to him for the structure and idea.

It’s fun to confuse people
Who are on the outside
They wish to understand
But ACCESS DENIED

Tomorrow,
Next week,
Next month,
Next year

They're all the same.

"I'll lose weight tomorrow."
"I'll study tomorrow."
"I'll finish tomorrow."

But tomorrow never comes.
Horrible, I know, but I just wanted to publish something.

beat slowly
do not ruin my heart
let me stay close
do not away from near
we have to talk long
do not offer to shut up
my burning gaze
do not try to put it out

my only concem is butterflies
do not squeeze in the palm of your hand

Look;

When did relationships
Get defined
By a read receipt?
Will we
Now
Only measure intimacy
By a tweet?

What do we have left,
Why can’t we
Go back
To laughter
In a diner seat
Writing poems may save my place in the book
of life. But I think my life is better seen
from a distance. Close up there are issues, dents
and some old popcorn under my chair.
Hard is the day
To start,
When waking with
A heavy heart.
