A Writer's Journey of a Secluded Mind

Month

August 2020

When the last light fades
And the cover is closed
And the words are no more
And my story is told

Just know this
You were a blip on the page
A piece of my chapter
Be it maker or mage

The length you walk with me
I do not know
For daylight is still here
the ink is still wet
and I have chapters to go

For there are
Faucets unseen
And depths unknown
This story is not done
This story of me

I like to say I can write English well, but in perusing Twitter (avoiding evening adult chores) I ran across this tweet-link from the DailyWritingTips regarding Lead (present) and Led (past).

Oops.

I have so been guilty of this. Read the article, it is well put together and makes you think. I found that I have been following this account and if I had taken the time to click a link ages ago, I may have been led down a more informative path.

I now feel that I need to review documents at work to ensure (or is it insure?…) that we’ve used the correct tenses. I hope to lead in the right direction but am sure I have led along treacherous paths.

Oh well, just one more pitfall in the journey of a writer’s mind.

I would fly
Through the night
Just because you called
I would drive
Just to see
The sun rise
I would light
A thousand candles
Just to let you
See the light
And I will dance
In the rain
Just to let
It wash away
the pain

Seven souls
Entwine
Virtually transcending
Evolving
Neurons

Severely Entertained

Sentient Velocity

Svelte
Elongated
Viscous
Envious
Nefarious
… well I mean, they say seven eight nine…*

I don’t want to love an idol
I don’t want to love a star
I don’t want to love someone
I can only see from afar.

I want to love someone near
I want to love someone who can hear

I don’t want to love an idol
But I am so I fear
Nothing good can come of this
Only loneliness and tear

As dawn goes to daylight
And daylight to dusk
So life enters twilight
And love endures to dust

I don’t want to love an idol
Whom nothing can compare
I don’t want to love someone
And leave this work in despair
