I Sponge (2004)


Easily I absorb your knowledge
Inexplicably I argue with my courage

Am I to argue with my thoughts?
Will I learn from a mistake sought?

My thoughts swallow a thought I thought.
I don't want it! ...I lie in distraught.

What is it I do to relieve of this stale Inhalation?
It is bad for me but still I take the situation.

A Sponge I have become to this day
A Sponge you can control and leave astray.

I can squeeze out all the cognition,
will not be left empty but with memories of observation.

I Sponge wish to be left out to dry,
I Sponge have been soaked with speculative sighs.

Slowly I begin to die,
Leaving me out to dry...

Slowly I begin to dry,
Leaving Me out ot die.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
