Wanting

– to be heard –

Pictured without sound
Tho can see be awaken,
As gyrations abound
With spirited dysfunction, 
Postures visibly found
In logic for malfunction,
Tells ye want to be heard
Baring ludicrous emotions,
Will use an extant voice
Thus, to bid without a word,
Might find to last forever
While given to be heard,
Hence in an unfettered world!

“ When Memory Fails ”

                  – held in time will –

When memory fails

As held in time will,

You’ll find it pales

Said ‘tis all but still,

Tho we’ll so falter

Must find to bide,

In kindly shelter

Until subsides,

Its weary burden

As one tries hide,

Ways it’ll worsen

In destined slide,

Of a dying mind

Be receding use,

Far beyond find

Now so abstruse,

While shy of time

As recall hides,

In its seclusion

Tho one is to abide,

When memory fails

In its retched mental prison,

Time wants tell to say goodbye!

 

                               ode to victims of failed memory…
