Random Poem:

It's Never Enough
jacksonic

.                                                          It's never enough
 1
                  Passionate samples without a measure of love
 2
                  Lost in the world, shakes his head with a shrug
 3
Never knowing of the pressure he's suppressed in his blood
 4
The lesson he practices,      performs with ease
 5
        Never ceases to dub himself pacifist
 6
But actually manages to damage in ignorance
 7
         Madness in the wake of his happiness
 8
Despite this, he disposes calmly
 9
                    Though hungry       and longing for presence
 10
Professing to those, who listen but still
 11
                                 Deeply withdrawn from the essence
 12
Hesitant as ever,        he treasures his thoughts
 13
          Never even fought over words
 14
He sits on a bench,         engorged in his stench
 15
             And tries to get lost like the birds
 16
 
 
She always comes back      and he loves her for that
 17
        Although all matter eventually shatters
 18
Like passing the patterns of a candle lit lantern
 19
           His mind tries to    fly   from the captors
 20
And carry
 21
                but he is weak, yet she is light
 22
    and it seems she has wings of her own
 23
His might in fact     may last for a flight
 24
       but to the winged there is never a home
 25
                     Attempting to roam   he's diluted in cicles
 26
Verbal excuses that tremble
 27
          Profusely assembling truths that resemble
 28
But they prove to be too brutal or gentle
 29
                                                          It's never enough
 30
                   Passionate verses without a measure of love
 31
                           "I will die, one day, alone, severing us"
 32
          He tries to say but gets lost in the pleasure of trust.
