Inconceivable

roses-3061486_1280

It seems to be
An edifice
One comprised of
An over-abundance
Of independent clusters
Mainly consisting
Of senseless
Illogical thoughts
All foolishly
Scrunched together
Fighting for
A little elbow-room
And yet each assemblage
Struggles
In hopeless desperation
To forgo
Any and all commonsense
To dismiss the idea
Of well-being
And to somehow
Find a discernible way
To fit together
In a reasonable manner
To accommodate
A sound configuration
Of logical proportions
Which is however
Preposterously inconceivable
In any rational state
Of normal comprehension
And so noticeably
Without the nature
Of any rightful justification
Or explanation
It defies
All customary laws
Choosing instead
To just be what it is
That which
Is none other
Than love

Wednesday

The clock
Was restless
In anticipation
Of another day

The girl
Was helpless
To keep procrastination
At bay

The work
Was senseless
And wouldn’t
Go away

The day
Was useless
Windy
And gray

The outlook
Was pointless
But she’d promised
To stay

The desire
Was reckless
To find
Another way

The afternoon
Was zealous
Beseeching her
To play

The schoolbook
Was jealous
Begging her
Not to sway

The convincing
Was endless
And she became
Its prey

The pendulum
Was voiceless
With nothing else
To say

Reasoning

mountains

The mind is very good
At creating illusions
Fanciful thoughts
Often become our delusions

We genuinely don’t know
And can never really say
If things might’ve turned out
For the better someway

The reality of every situation
Is that sacrifices come with a cost
And sometimes in the hype
We all get lost

Things often seem senseless
When they’re actually for good reason
So we shouldn’t underestimate
The importance of every season

I’m learning this these days
Realizing more as I go
Understanding the things
That I thought I’d never know

Growing and changing
It’s what we all do
And time is the only one
Who knows what we’ve been through
