Purple's Platitudes

nothing but words …

drive

02 March 2014

 

 

I’m stuck in Neutral,

let out the clutch, give it gas,

I still go nowhere.

Life is not automatic.

You have to put it in gear.

hostage

01 March 2014

 

 

hostage,

without demands,

no blackmail, no ransom,

just being held captive by the

unknown.

fulcrum

27 February 2014

 

 

belief –

desperation

for all those still looking,

unspeakable joy for those who

have found.

aquarium

26 February 2014

 

 

I see

clearly, beyond

existing boundaries,

which experience says I can’t

escape.

 

So I

swim in circles,

content with discontent,

stay within my own element

until …

I’d wish for bigger pockets

23 February 2014

 

 

Pockets,

too small to hold

all of the falling stars

I’ve caught and saved for rainy days

like this.

unspoken

22 February 2014

 

 

Love me,

words unspoken,

except through the soul’s eyes,

without touch, and yet touching all

within.

reunion

22 February 2014

 

 

These trees

still welcome me,

like brothers, or old friends,

reliving how it used to be

back when.

drowning pool

15 February 2014

 

 

I am

not the strongest

swimmer, but that never

kept me from diving into the

deep end.

 

Flailing

arms, legs kicking,

swallowing some water …

In life, we either sink and drown,

or swim.

conspiracy theory

15 February 2014

 

 

From less,

to more, or most,

this empty loneliness

can be disguised, but never lost

at best.
