I’m already a tiny bit
Unscrupulous and crazy
If you wonder why I’m maybe
Just a step or two from sanity
It’s tragedy and vanity
A parody of living
In a caveat humanity
I could have been an actor
In a comedy of errors
But my flaws were too apparent
And too flaw-like to be errant
So I turned into a painter
With a penchant for the distant
Looking for a stroke of brilliance
But my lines are incoherent
This truly is a stroke of brilliance! I totally heard it as a song, maybe you can sell your lyrics, you poet of WordPress and lyricist of life 🙂
I heard a certain rhythm to it much like a song, but I’m sure it would be better if you sing it instead of me 🙂
This is amazing – “I could have been an actor in a comedy of errors” – brilliant poem (love the rhythm!) I love it!!
🙂 thank you, Betty! I’m thankful you enjoyed it!
A spirit in flight
A bird on the wing
Who dare define
The final destiny?
How are you today?
Still flying thanks
A wonderful response my friend. Thank you for the inspiration
Rather thank *you*.
Love it 🙂 It’s just totally awesome 🙂
Thank you very much!
Yes, I agree with the others – this poem is brilliance. One of the most melodic, yet sharply intelligent poems I’ve read.
Well, thank you. I’m sure any intelligence is pure coincidence though 😉
Well written! I really like this one…. I think I say that alot 😉 you are just amazing with words ..<3
I think you give me more credit than I deserve, Lydia, but I’m honored that you think so highly of my work! Thank you for the encouragement ❤
so I put away my easel
gave the finger to that weasel
So wouldn’t you know it
I evolved into a Poet
Haha nice 🙂
“Looking for a stroke of brilliance But my lines are incoherent ” You have always had that stoke of genius and your lines are never incoherent !! You are brilliant!! Love it XXXXX
My brain is so rebellious that my writing must be a chore to read at times. Sometimes my thoughts seem incoherent so I can’t imagine how my writing is much better lol. Thank you Willow
Incoherent – no
Looking for a stroke of brilliance….I love the abstract painting u used here very brilliant….. strokes totally magnificent
But my lines are incoherent … I disagree…one of the best piece I read today, powerful lines
Thank you very much 🙂 I am always in pursuit of that elusive quality which is the translation of heart to words. Perhaps one day I will achieve it 🙂
Love it and the artwork>
Thank you Richard. I appreciate you stopping by
I agree…this is already a stroke of brilliance! Loved the flow and rhythm! 🙂
Thank you so much. Your words are encouraging 🙂
This is awesome.So many lines that jump out.SUPERB!!!
BTW I should also have said more directly how impressed I am by this piece.
I am grateful you feel that way. Thank you for taking time to express your thoughts. That is very special to me
Normalcy is a pretense and sanity is arbitrary.
Such a great response. Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I’m going to remember that 🙂
