Ode To Thoughts Lost

Ode To Thoughts Lost ode

Photo by Fey Ilyas

The aisles in my brains
Twist into crooked lanes
They curve and bend
Around corners on end

As I think, a bulb flickers on;
Proverbially almost.
Illuminating the sidewalks
Dimly, then brightening up,
Then blacking out at the epitome of my thought.
If I was about to reveal some profound mystery,
I will never know.

All I know is my thought has lost its way in my brain.
It is wandering.
Passing through walls.
Looking for a way out.

Lost Passion

Alone and unwanted. Unnecessary and useless. Unable to satisfy. In need of replacing. The heat of the moment. Now died down. Left unfeeling. Mind still racing. A touch once hot. The passion now gone. No longer needed. No more devoured.

An Ode For Humanity

An Ode For Humanity short poem

A marble, jostling among the congregation says: I am not so obsolete But am impelled to be desolate For, the ultimate cause of humanity Perished in its serendipity. Defiance and vengeance and malevolence Thrived in conquering this vicinity But humanity-succumbed
