"Mourning then morning now / On with the show somehow"


Mourning Then Morning Now

 

I know sometimes my rhymes get dark and dense

Grow grim and grimmer tense and in suspense

I must seem enigmatic at the least

The Antichrist perhaps or just the Beast

I do not wish to lose my audience

For I would be invited to the feast

If only for green apples and brown rice

Perhaps a little Twining's Earl Grey tea

And I on best behavior would be nice

I think we would get on fabulously

 

Sometimes my rhymes are grim because of him

Some joys which were are not because of her

But it is not my nature to be grim

And I regret those smiles which never were

Because of the shenanigans of some

Who bum me out and would not let spring come

If ever there were a time to transcend

And to embrace the moment face to face

I think that time has come my reading friend

To leave those doomed to drama to God's grace

 

Mourning then morning now

On with the show somehow

I am very sorry to hear of these troubles, Stevie. I don't even know how anyone can send messages without their being traced immediately to source since, or so I thought, messages are encrypted. In any case, I hope this gets cleared quickly. Thankfully, It does not seem to have hurt your muse in this poem which is very evocative and meaningful. Love, peace and strength to you. Regis

This is written so well and I believe that we all have this because I know that I have my dark side and the lighter side but that is called conscience Steve.
