Away amongst the dappled sky
You see me racing swiftly by
And harken to my engines cry
The heavens ever speeding nigh
For thrust will push me swiftly high
Tis skyward that I fly!
The jet stream takes me rapidly
The form aerodynamically
To the place I mean to be
A bullet shot from barrel, me!
So fast a blur is all you see…
To lofty places I ascend
The constellations to befriend
And through the space which has no end
I strike the fabric, make it bend
Before spacetime itself I rend…
I land in distant years behind
My eldest kin I hope to find
For in their strength they’ve become blind
A warning have I in my mind
“Beware, the future is not kind…”
And when my purpose here is done
They hear my mighty engines run
I launch once more toward the sun
My sonic blast, all hearing, stun
Like bullet shot from smoking gun!
Then back through rift I must return
Slowing by my retro burn
But soon a dreadful thing I learn
A comet speeding struck my stern
Stranded now, defeat I spurn!
For though my state is more then grave
Tis home my soul doth wholly crave
And so a plan I start to pave
A burnished sail my life will save
For I can ride a solar wave.
Now close to earth I soon will be
Approaching far too rapidly
For burning is my craft, yes she
The one who swiftly carried me
Crash! I plunge into the sea.
My ship is recked but I survive
Drifting eastward half alive
When to an island I arrive
And on said place, for life I strive.
Then after months of living there
Illness I take through lack of care
But then a ship, tall sailed and fair
Picks me up, off island bare
And gives me drought of spirit ere
Death claim me or age hoar my hair.
And when I am safe home at last
Infirmity from me I cast
Recalling engines mighty blast
My journey to the distant past
And galaxies rushing toward me fast!
I write it down, just how you read
And tell it true to all who heed
And now conclude, for I am freed
With brand new rocket, lightning speed
What a wondrous life I lead…
It's cold and warm but neither really wants to connect which is understandable really who wants to give 100%
so go back and forwards it's rocking horse hopes and flag posted dreams fluttering in the grey breeze named
it's not forgetting to remember,
it's about remembering to forget.
My neon-hearted one,
vibrating throbs shining through
the soul-soaked night. It
is an endless ride
on this forlorn, pebble-skinned
autobahn; I still
can feel you out there.
Your heartstrings are like distant,
radio waves; such
beautiful white noise
attached to the senses of
mine anchoring me
into a godspeed
velocity just to safe
and sound; here and now reach you.
I sit down in tweak town
To jot down a new noun,
A nice verb, a poetic sound,
But all that comes out
Is blah blahs, and doubt.
There’s not enough coffee,
To help satisfy me,
As long as I compare myself,
To everybody else.
So here in caffeine city,
The poetry is witty.
Every verse excites me.
Ever line invites me,
To be better.
Speed is my muse,
As long as I let her.
A nicotine lozenge,
Four milligram a piece,
Helps me stay awake,
Until, I am allowed to sleep;
Helps me to stay alert,
Helps me write this verse,
But in the end
The zzzz will hit me worse.
I guess, I should have just gone to bed
Down the road from out the door
faster faster down the lane
moving to a great epiphany
we'll never be the same
Pacing to the speed of light
out of the atmosphere
faster faster baby
let's try to disappear
Rounding the stars
speeding out in space
faster faster maybe
we'll leave, without a trace
Your hair flying behind you
speed ripples on our skin
a leaving of our galaxy
where you and I, begin
A phenom pursue movement
by midnight if entrained encampment
flush by her heels while quatrain will absorb
when she only a heaping there in life with
hers round circumference as deeply met
for a week if her sorcery became a tempest rife
in horsepower with such antigen that an earthquake
with even more liquefaction than mere mention
on cruises her regression must also play into her automobile
and forebode her ritual in speeding in class action.
I smell the energy rising from you,
drifting swirls of vapour hitting me as
your heat embodies itself in the air's
molecules. I smell the importance of
you, significant to everyone except
me. You're a drug, coursing through their veins and
giving their brains exactly what they have
been craving, yet I am resistant to
your eniticing ways. The promise of that
electric focus as my heart picks up
the pace to follow everyone elses...
it doesn't appeal to me anymore.
I lost my hunger for you a long time
ago, when you started to wear me down,
and now the only drug I will ever
crave again is him.
