Thought Needs Nothing - Poem by Joseph Skytta

Thoughtless is the tideless ocean,
Reaping sewn threads with quiver and quill,
Letting endless hours pass in motion,
Staring down a street with no will,
In time all things come to stay and ponder,
Gasping at the vastness of reality,
Watching stars fall and leave with the suitor,
Angry thoughts freeze, is there no deity,

And it’s all because,

Thought needs nothing,
No need for company,
Thought needs nothing,
No reason just to be,
Thought needs nothing,
I aim not to be free,
Thought needs nothing,
I reach out for insanity,
Thought needs,

Accompanied by a ghostless figure,
Walls within walls cast fear aside,
Blocking view the beast of burden,
Impassible by nature holds the night,
Eyes see only what they perceive,
Ears hear only the triumphant sounds,
Needing is simply physical wishings,
Take it all away and you are bound,

To be where,

Thought needs nothing,
No need for anybody,
Thought needs nothing,
Thank you all for coming,
Thought needs nothing,
Get out of my way,
Thought needs nothing,
I am here to stay,

Can’t I be where,

Thought needs nothing,
Please just leave me be,
Thought needs nothing,
I just need to think,
Thought needs nothing,
Just let me breathe,
Thought need nothing,
Let me believe,
Thought needs,
Thought needs nothing,

My body, and my sight,
You there too, shaking likewise,
Chilled to bone, my breath inclined,
Calling out for me, I hear my mind

Sand, is falling, time has ceased,
There, is nothing, that can’t be,
I, will always, want you with me,
But there’s no, room for three.

    Common experience, but uncommon(AWESOME) rendering! We all experience this situation, but never comprehend. Thoughts themselves are restless, by their very nature...
    Their complexity often make us fail in comprehending the entire phenomena..
    but here, my good friend joseph has succeeded in making an ocean outta tides...! great!
    I love the ending... '.. there's no room for three....' (Report) Reply
