As I sit in muted silence
The incessant ringing in my ear
Thoughts of
This and that
Dissolve like snowflakes
In August

The beating of my heart
The fatigue that covers me
The feelings of
What I just don’t know

I wanna
I wanna
I wanna

But it seems so hard
So I will sit in the silence
Of my own coursing thoughts
Believing in better days ahead
When the pressure clears
In my head

I haven’t posted much over the past weeks as I’ve been fighting a viral infection. Getting better finally but my thoughts are still jumbled and all over the place. This ramble is what poured out this morning.  Have a great day and God bless!

  1. I am so sorry you have been ill, but I love this poem. I think any poet can relate to this. How many times have I thrown up my pen, laughed and muttered “I got nothing”!. Great stuff Mark.
