R.E.M....Orse - Poem by Jake Deeds

MY steps, taken blindly to an unmarked path
And my eyes stoically stare backward as the next
Step is trusted in sequence… the pendulum set
Into motion… one pushing against the other
Without any real movement…Pandora paddles
The perot…in circles…under my eyes…and the tears
Suspend the here and now…no turning back…regret
Regresses…sanity slows to the speed
Of sloth…reality no longer co-exists
I grow sleepy to the world…<><

    Wow! I need a pendulum. (I have really bad insomnia...) I could really connect to this. part of what keeps me awake is remorse. The title is creative as well. I believe that's Rapid. Eye. Movement....ORSE or Remorse. Anyway, great read. Thanks for share. (Report) Reply
