Wanting

– to know why –

Would it matter,
Wanting
To know why,
If one didn’t
Get an answer,
Having thought
To wonder,
Ought question
Mental wrought,
Find whether
Trouble ought,
Tho no longer
Above water,
While persists
Probe forever,
One considers  
Being clever,
Mightn’t ever 
Learn reply,
Wanting
To know why, 
Best be left
Without an answer!

Hardly Ever

       – close to hereafter –

Tho ye be willing
Accept said clever
Without doubting
Aimed endeavour, 
Thus, to conciliate
Fated last forever, 
Relieved of debate
Afar reach of a tether,
With life due late date
Hence holds hardly ever,
Ye found close to hereafter! 



                                       Ode to Edgar Allan Poe,
		                             master of morbidity…

“ If Life Should Be Forever ” ~ might this hold being free ~

If one could live forever

Might this hold being free,

Or confuse so the measure

Of a wishful thinking spree,

Else be of bent mind clever

The while deny bid’s plea,

To objurgate a moot debate

On life spans short decree,

By the gods of fixing fate

Who exact this mortal fee,

On mankind destined state

Beckons thus eternal sleep,

Tho beg delay expiry date

We’ve to exit existence’s keep,

Lest this life should be forever!

 

“ The Beginning ” ~ goals not forever ~

 

In the beginning

Declared alive,

Tho not forever

We’re to survive,

Nor be the wiser

Save few clever,

Saw worth persist

Embrace alive,

Subject decides

Goals not forever,

Bids why so devised …

 

Thus man’s mind

Of tenacious bind,

Aims fashion delay

To a shortish stay,

While not eternal

Seeks fix revision,

To alter ways vision

Life sees road’s bend,

Might find sidestep end!

 

                                             man’s ever ludicrous dream
