Rookie (103164 / peoria illinois usa)

sometimes you feel like a nut


sometimes
it feels like
a ghost walk
through the desert
just senseless endless
searching
scanning barrens
distorting heat waves
only for the mirage
when you see it
it's everything
you know it's not real
but it is the reality
that draws you
valley of violets
ponds of lillies
you jump
as it shatters
you grab fragments
you clutch
and tear
to share the beauty
of the illusion
then you stand
spit the sand
out of your mouth
and scan

Farewell love and all thy laws forever;
Thy baited hooks shall tangle me no more.
Senec and Plato call me from thy lore
To perfect wealth, my wit for to endeavour.
