I'm just a wandering soul here to enjoy every minute this life gives. Writing is my record keeping of all life has to offer me.

Blue like the sky
Alright, who said that?
Not the monkey, monkeys can’t talk
Absolutely blue like the deepest ocean
No, this is not happening right now
Actually it is, and I’m telling you it’s blue!

Wait a minute, what is blue?
Have a look...

Regret’s fluidity running through veins
Endless building of hostile emotions
Deafening all other voices deep within...

Hitting their target dead on with the ultimate vigor
Dissent of views turned sour

The hearts space once fully occupied...

Thoughts raced through an already cluttered mind
Creating its own white noise

Swiftly, gently did the body move

I'll answer. Never and always. Life has balance and without one you cannot have the other. This poem is a fun way to provoke thought, however!

Hauntingly beautiful. I could read this a thousand times and never tired of it.

Honestly I don't understand it nor do I feel it flows well. The ideas seem jumbled.

Even in old age people still feel the need of others approval. I long for the quiet days when I can fill my voids with words and worry not of anything.

This whisks you away to a time period where language flourished.
