My Scattered Thoughts viii


My shadow always stays with me
I never walk alone,
I have a bit of life in me
who says that i am stone?
while musing over lost time
or writing rhymes,
I do not feel the time flying
My mind is always jam-packed
with loud and stormy scattered thoughts;
I always brought
the real Me in true colors i mostly wear,
writing- and but no way out
God knows better every fact
who dictates me verse I wonder
I am bound to write at once
or keep it safe in virgin mind
Goodness Gracious!
how can I be really able
to bear the burden of my thoughts!
So do you never worry for me
- - - - - - - - - - - - -
I never walk alone!

    Your scattered thought are God imbued, and philosophical in nature. And God will let you know when your
    thoughts will be express, and when kept in virgin mind. Beautiful poem. (Report) Reply

    You true feeling are described here. A sensitive person always experience this even when a poem is not being composed, thoughts move along scattered and at times composed into poems. (Report) Reply

    I always try and channel my thoughts before setting down to write and keep my thoughts loose. But poetry is that bitter sweet pill that takes over our thoughts. Often I have the first line then as I write I let the poem take over. A lovely write Shahzia. (Report) Reply

    while musing over lost time
    or writing rhymes,
    I do not feel the time flying
    That's exactly what we all feel! No wonder, we spend a lot of our time in poemhunter, musing our thoughts away! As the other poems of this series, a powerful write! ! (Report) Reply
