Introspection; a fools errand

Cauldron or crucible?

Dirge away, the heart is on fire.

On the other hand the hearth is cold.

And we are barely still in love.

Not that this mattress has much use,

The sleep time is headed for the floor,

And I do a lot of odd sleeping.

Whilst you count kittens and your chickens,

I wonder if spell checker

Can write its own poems yet.

AI and the given lie, is still evolving,

Like the Web of promise,

Of empty promise,

Was always really a Web of deception.

Bye then to digression, hello walking feet.

My inside feels like a cake mixture,

All sweetness and light.

The reality is it so isn’t.

I am not the person, I think, I seem to be.

I am in fact see-through.

Delusional, occluded and flighty.

Like a Chiffon blouse,

I too try to contain,

But am just as obvious.

What is it with me?

Is it simply a case of;

What you see, it’s what you guess?

Revelled in self pity

Is manifest in me,

For what was once, flowing words,

Is now but notchy poetry.

Introspection is a fools errand.

One thought on “Introspection; a fools errand

  1. I find what is written on the speed of flight gives the truest account of the heartfelt plight. Words obscure the crux of the message, but is the only means one can communicate it’s essence.
