A String of Cliches

The stillness of the sound
It’s feeding like a drip
Oh life’s a funny old thing.

Planes drone overhead
Seas lap dirty shores
It’s just a string of clichés.

My hands are bored
My heart’s overgrown
It doesn’t know where to go.

I’ve got a fissure inside
It gets deeper every time
Whenever I try to move.

Upwards and outwards
I’m scrambling upwards
And outwards…


And the crack is growing
It’s growing in

To me

Oh how do you stop
What’s already started?

How to stop a freight train?

    I like your work. Remember, cliche sells everything and always has and always will. That is because people love cliche and the familiar. I use cliche a lot because I know that. I have a true story about a runaway derailing freight train coming to a hault within inches of my nose, everybody in the depot ran out the back door. I just watched the train derail and almost destroy the depot along with myself inside it. True story. Everyone said I had nerves of steel. LOL Vee Bdosa
