Life chipping away

Life chipping away short poem

Daily I see
a different me,
each morning
I notice-
an iota of
sheen missing,
a part of me
has withered,
chipping regularly
from somewhere or
the other,
a delta difference
between me and
the me
from yesterday,
Am I each day fading away?
I’m slowly growing old
Will my story be ever told?
What traces will I leave behind?
Many many doubts run in my mind,
I’m old,
older than yesterday,
Did I make any difference
to my world today?
Did I change anyone’s life or
the least made someone smile?
Not averse to
the laws of nature,
I would like someone
whom I can nurture,
for there is a stage in
everyone’s life
when you get a chance
to revive,
relive and cherish
those little moments
for life isn’t grey and has
colourful elements.

a good figure on reflection: the mirror as more than a tool for vanity, and most interesting when it moves thoughts away from oneself to the consideration of the situation with others. Is it a chipping away then? Definitely progress! kind regards, Dom.

Life As A Dream short poem

I kissed the pillows of her cheeks. Covering myself in the blanket of her caress. While here nothing is heavy. Maintaining the balance of smiles in the bed of her arms She doesn’t mind my snore, relaxed in complete comfort.
