Random Poem:

Words
treerain

Minutes spent alone
 1
In the patients of silence
 2
Forgetting the cuts on my hands
 3
Given in battle
 4
Of minute proportions
 5
Of the mountains yet to bow
 6
The wind in the line
 7
Of finished thought
 8
Profound and not understood
 9
I’ll sit here in the rush of patience
 10
Mistaking the light for fault
 11
Letters and angles undone
 12
In the spoken sound of lips
 13
Poking the world in the eye
 14
Ha, now I’ve learned a secret!
 15
Perish in the flames of antiquity
 16
No one knows anymore
 17
If those words that were thoughts
 18
Were transcribed rightly by the fools
 19
Who knew themselves
 20
In joining the pen as one.
 21
I let my mind take the wheel,
 22
Unjustly it may be taken,
 23
So I will save it in the crib
 24
Unlike the bounds of lines
 25
This flowing river’s ceiling
 26
Will reach a point when I will breathe
 27
A moment before under siege
 28
And my mind swims in its name
 29
Oh blessed are the ones
 30
Who transposed their thoughts
 31
On contact color paper
 32
Harnessing the might of the atom
 33
The things the world loves most
 34
Yet it is tethered by the limits
 35
That thought has to it
 36
These words, these chains
 37
Are thus bound
 38
