Midnights Voice

(November 3,1950 / Selma, Alabama)

Blah, Blah, Blah


Goodbye-goodbye
blah, blah, blah...

In the shortness of his breath
all desperation was taking place

I walk off
looking far into space

The game is over
nobody-no one-
scored

we all lost


Then in a notebook
while sitting
on a park bench
an old man jots down
a poem about lost youth
past loves and better days

meanwhile

the sun crossed the sky
east to west
and the day was never seen
or heard from again

    wow. I really dig your out of the box thought process. this takes a special mind to piece together. but I understand it. god, like each breath it's done...sounds also like an unrepentant survivor. am I crazy? (Report) Reply

    Beautiful write on game. Life is also a game.. Some times we win sometimes loose. sometimes withdraw.
    To participate in game is more important rather than thinking of its winning it or loosing it.
    Even if we don't want to play, life will push us into it. Each days never return back...Beautiful write..
    Poem with deep meanings.. Loved the way you presented it. (Report) Reply
