Difference In Being Different

 

Tick tock

Bears the beats

Down gravity’s clock

Time wanders paths not taken

Briars attach thorns to cloth

Tear away existence’s tattered fabric

Quiver

Do’s and Don’t

Ripples rough the whether knot quill

Twisting taunt to and fro - see saw

Seeing this, that – in hollow reflective grains

Tears away the exterior’s woven weave

Drip drop

Past present future presence present

Reflective stagnant pools

Should a, could a, would a

Stripped naked to a skeletal frame

Insecurity bares nothing worthwhile

Birth certificate in a death certificate

Stenciled grave mark’s blank headstone

Abrasive sandpaper weathers life to dust

In never having dared

In God’s miracle gift - to be different.

 

Tick tock,

Wears the heartbeats

Navigating gravity’s clockmaker

Rhyme wanders livid verse exploration

Aura persona attaching meaning to life

That shares existence’s insight fabric

Quiver

Yes, yes, yes ooze those life climaxes

Ripple alive that sensual titillating quill

Intertwine pleasures in and out experiences

Doing this, that – upon inspiration gains

Enlighten cerebral’s celestial woven weave

Drip drop

Past present future presence in stellar resonance

Circumspective pools

Stepping stones rising within ability

Stripped naked skinny dipping alliteration

Secure destiny - make it worthwhile

Birth certificate in a death certificate’s

Nobel headstones of wordsmith masters

Upon libraries shelves gathering dust

Reincarnated by readers by being daring

In God’s miracle gift showcasing -

that living live makes a difference.

Oh poet drift alight your Uni-Verse

The Difference In Being Different.
