PURPOSEless

bydoingmybest©

why put meaning
where there is none
why take pride
in purely selfish fun

where is the truth
intentionally twisted times
where are the lost
here lies discarded mind

all i do is work the energy
ride eternal ebb and flow
on our give and take
hopeless love making

head rising from fog
captures a moment of thought
falling but deeply

beauty become mine
for a moment, this divine
only second, of stillness
in wake i grasp
to make i cast
nets out to the seas of time
whirling ravishing naked
brushed up in a cliffside dwelling
warm roasted almond flavored
coffee sipping curled with a
favorite book, she reads through
with a different meaning
all the same

the winds do tear at the foundations of our trust
the rains do fall against a roof of ignorant denial
snow breaks, showing clearly
the lands surrounding
are bleak and desolate

howling storms betray a life of perpetual night
swirling ice cuts to the deepest hidden core
natures force diminishes all human might
leaving us licking healing our
gaping infectious sores
