Decided

The shadows move in dreams of thought. The days of when have now been sought. The answers came not even taught. As we lost the war we never fought. With hearts of tattered shreds in doubt. The pain and rain insane we shout. In silent empty depths we tout. Beliefs we know nothing about. Somewhere along the way. Justified undignified had it's say. The beginning came, ya, what may. It all ended up decided that day. And now the clouded glow. Emulates what we think we know. Influences the director's show. As the audience goes with the flow. Repeat and rinse and repeat and rinse. But dormant grass has grown ever since. The meaning in my words I now mince. As I wait for someone to convince.

I have no idea how you rhyme so well! Whenever I'm done with my home work and my chores, I begin to roam over your poems and I literally entertain myself that way! Keep the amazing good work up!

Thank you Madi. In my opinion, rhyming isn't what is hard, trying to make the rhymes cohesive and make sense with in the context of the rest of the poem is the trick. I don't always do that. :)

Robert, thanks for visiting so many poems of mine. And please keep in mind, a lot of what I write is pure fantasy!! (regarding the one that made you feel sad about Valentine's DAy!)

You are very good with sad poems, Robert. I liked that part a lot repeat and rinse, repeat an rinse but dormant grass has grown ever since. a strange contrast but I really dig it.
