Diving
in the shallow end
of life
isn't really the safe option
Jeff Lewis Jun 2021
Blind men leading,
and the mute follow.
The future
stands wide open,
     if you have the right key.
Jeff Lewis Nov 2020
...that life is a blank canvas
after I've
pawned my paint and
brushes
for a bitter cup of coffee
and a bus pass.
hold on to your dreams
Jeff Lewis Jul 2020
I would banish all my ghosts
      banish all pain
            all shame
I would banish the night
      but then
             I might forget my name
Jeff Lewis Dec 2019
Oh,

to

         float free
                               among
    the
               clouds


But the sky
                                    is clear and blue

Thwarted again.

Rortle beans.
You've never had them.
But if you had,
You would know
They make you chortle.
Like a tortle on its back
Would never do
To you.
Poor tortle. (flip 'em over will ya)
Up too late
Jeff Lewis Nov 2019
Something?
Anything?
Nothing.

That's what I have today,
nothing.

But nothing
might be
something,

if seen a certain way.
Nothing is nothing, except room to grow.
