Stuck On You


        For how many times have I trailed this road --
           the long,
           the winding,
           the cobbled,
           the muddy,
        and still fall on nature's booby trap?

                             I thought that,
                             mastery,
                             along with flattery,
                             will make me an expert!

                   but no,
                   everyday...
                                   the  rules  change
                                   taking our wisest,
                                   and    leaving    us
                                                      stuck.



I'm stuck on you,
and I don't know what to do.
Should I give up?
Or should I just keep chasing pavements?

  3. Hmmmnn, so many poets lately, I love it! ;D

  4. Désolé Boy: Hmm... Intense emotions make me write... for I have no one else to tell and the true story might not sound as appealing. A poem would be a great avenue, just like how Sappho found a peace in it.

  16. Oh, but how it always fools us, catching us deep within the heart.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Reflections: Which would more likely become a trance from knowing to unknowing, and letting the heart decide. Ah, you got me right there. Exactly right there. :)

Most of the time, tact is not for the intelligent. It takes a great deal of 'being there' to realize that something else is going on.
