You are nothing
but a vague distraction
from all my lazy coffee drinking,
foggy afternoons
busy thoughts,
I am trying to ignore.
You are
a mere and utter entertainment,
for when my eyes are bored
to read the words
of someone famous.
I turn to you.
All foreign sayings
lead in one direction –
We’re like a pair of fluffy kittens,
fiddling with the ball.
Or balls.
Or other body parts of such.
You run,
I wait.
I run,
you catch.
I stand,
you wait.
For more attention.
Never-ending cycle.
Easy, right?
We change momentum,
time to time,
but all it changes
is our lust,
which is, ironically,
just disappearing faster.

  1. We play with a toy but quickly tire of it in favor of newer models. We use a tool but different tasks require different types. We cherish a treasure because it’s unique and isn’t come by easily, so we recognize its immense value and therefore treat it accordingly!

    1. This is where the problem lies – we see a toy and think its a treasure. Until we realise our perception was wrong and the search continues, leaving a toy abandoned into the hands of someone else, that is mot necessary as careful with it as we once were and it gets damaged in the hands of a new owner.

    2. That’s why they have toy repair shops, unless it was one of those cheap toys made in China in which case it usually just ends up in a land fill. Ok that probably didn’t help at all did it?!!

    3. In case you were wondering, as of today it’s Β£1.45 per kilo!

      ………oh, sorry; the price of tea in China πŸ˜‰

  2. The dance of lovers is always so fickle and ever changing, great passion is lost to this world I fear. Even a good muse is hard to find this century.

    1. Sometimes I wonder, if being/having a muse is not over-rated. If you had to choose, would you rather have one or be one to somebody instead?

    1. Thanks… I have noticed myself that coffee is a repeated thing in my poetry, but its such big part of me, i don’t seem to be able to get rid of it, when i write! πŸ™‚

    2. Doesn’t strike me as something to be worried about, have you noticed the musical references in a lot of my posts?
      Well, music to me anyway πŸ˜‰
