seeking the words (free verse – tanka)

wordless
lifeless
time goes by
do I ignore her?
or she eludes me?

like running on empty
body goes through the motion
thoughts no longer genuine
scripted, politically correct
boring as hell
but life goes on
no one is touched
no one is moved
my soul hangs in limbo

 

wordless
lifeless
time goes by
do I ignore her?
or she eludes me?

glare of a fifteen inch screen
stares at me –motionless … dumb
thoughts have yet to be seen
dulled sentiments simply numb
sinking deeper in a well of bile
a new meaning’s been given
to that famous green mile
no longer defining a planned death
this madness within will soon escape
released with each mindful breath

wordless
lifeless
time goes by
do I ignore her?
or she eludes me?

but then…

icicles shimmer
pure beauty radiates
searching for the words
sunshine melts indifference
my muse has just returned
