Random Thoughts (November 28, 2011)

Sigh.

Silence
Calm before
The storm.

Time
Becomes
A measureless
Construct.

Pleasure
Brief interruption
In a meaningless
World.

Sleep
Oblivion
From reality.

Food
Method of delivery
For legal toxins
Into the body.

Death
Another gateway
For life.

    1. Thank you, Grace, this poem was written, during a time of great depression, for me. Generally, I suffer from semi-annual bout of depression, my summer period last, from July to September and my fall/winter period, depending on the weather, usually starts, in November, until mid-March.

  3. Some food could be considered a way to get toxins in the body.

  4. Not the most upbeat poem, but we've all been there. I chuckled a bit at the "food" one. Well done.
