Taking Time


Prototypically leveling the playing field of life,
adjusting feelings to fit the same dimensions and
taking over many ideas of somnolent pastimes, as
they juxtapositionally turn away from so many
similar thoughts.

Practicing almost totally in the dark, reaching out
to grasp onto potent, poignant topics as they
stretch beyond reach and lift me out of dire straits
I find myself in.

Taking time as it comes, singing of it's joy on very
lonely days.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Three times I had the lust to kill,
To clutch a throat so young and fair,
And squeeze with all my might until
No breath of being lingered there.
Three times I drove the demon out,
