CHANGE OF PLANS


I had it figured out.
It just made sense.
I thought
to ease the pain
and deaden fear,
I'd simply to slink away
and disappear.
This helped a bit
whenever I felt tense.
Till you came,
each dawn I could not think why
I had to rise.
It tore up my insides.
So I took risks.
Tried subtle suicides.
If nothing happened soon,
I prayed to die.
I'd faced my failure.
Yet I couldn't cope
with my desire.
I left my dreams to laps.
Lost Faith.
Grew cold inside.
And yet, perhaps,
It only happens
when you give up hope.
Now confidence, relief
and new demands.
I'm so damn glad
you messed up all my plans.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
