Lately I've Been Feeling Like:

A piano being played
A donkey chasing carrots
A suitor turned suitless
A wise man turned fool

I think you cannot decide
I think you refuse to decide
I think I thought I knew
I think I think too much

About only you
About only will you
About only won’t you
About only maybe

So weary of maybe
So weary of won’t you
So weary of will you
So weary of about you

Life is short
Life is fragile
Life is precious
Life goes on…

    I'm guilty of thinking too much, don't you wish there was an off switch some days? : ) Yes, life is precious and short, what is meant to be will be Tim, let's make a pact and both agree not to think too much okay. Terrific write! Hugs

    That first line captures so much in so many layers. Great tone this poem creates. Good to read you again, Tim: I have missed being around. Will share a poem I wrote about Ireland after my first visit there. It is a magical place and a land of poets. SuZ

    Of course i will. Ask, dammit, ask (lol). Lucky the being who managed to touch you so deeply. Good luck, Tim. May you have your answers soon. Licia :-)

    There is much more to this poem than first meets the eye.......I think some of these feelings are not just your poetic imagination having fun, but perhaps reflecting something more real, and needing to know where you stand. I hope you get the answers you are hoping for......and is short, fragile, and precious..... I hope she recognizes it the same as you! :) Best wishes my friend!

    I like the way you wrote that Tim, it was kind of different, yes, this is true, life goes on, and never does what you want it to
