“ Grieving ” ~ time neglected ~

I grieve for time

Passing unseen,

Tho anxiously

I try redeem,

An absurd task

Held be a dream,

Behind the mask

That only seems,

To assuage its fear

Now less than keen, 

When down the line

Reality holds clear,

That life I left behind

Actualizes many years,

Yet neglected tell my mind

There be life beyond the tears,

For obtusely squandered designs

That has me grieving, now ill timed!

“ Apostrophizing ” ~ to form a connection ~

We’re held believe,

Life offers beings

A state perceived,

As an apostrophe

Of human needs,

Held best allayed

By transient bond,

Save best ignored

Till they abscond,

Supernumeraries

Of guile abound,

With ignobility

Of such ineptness,

As to apostrophizing

To form a connection,

Holds short imagining

Word worth excogitation!
