I Need For There To Be More Than Whats Here - Poem by mike ruthenbeck

I need for there to be more than what's here
This life has become too residential
Somehow everything will just disappear

Some new contrivance I must commandeer
Intrinsic existence influential
I need for there to be more than what's here

Most of this time, I no longer endear
And I can’t forget how providential
Somehow everything will just disappear

Contemplating my life over this beer
Wanting for more than is bare essential
I need for there to be more than what's here

But clinging inside of my inner ear
Words repeating most morbid torrential
Somehow everything will just disappear

Living a life as a lone musketeer
Seeking the question true existential
I need for there to be more than what's here
Somehow everything will just disappear
