Logic Games (Repeating Words) - Poem by David DeSantis

Sameness sets,
when unable to vocalize
the thoughts
that pursue it near.

pain gets,
when unable
to bridge a gap
that complacency
has sheared

complacency conquers
when pain has taken
the last ambition
to be found in fear

while love falters
when lovers
cease to communicate,
a constant
lack of tears

Lately,
no matter how many lovers i take,
i find neither
pain nor complacency,

and in that
is my
logical fear.

    I like this, very clever with the first line of each stanza rhyming, works to great effect - but above all it's the message that comes across. Seems it's the same no matter what age. Good penning. HG: -) xx (Report) Reply
