Restless The Mind Senses Forsakes - Poem by Wilfred Mellers

Restless The Mind Senses Forsakes
Written by: Wilfred Mellers, Saturday, November 7,2015

I thought too much with my heart
The house of cards soon fell apart
Got it handed back in a paper bag
Boastfully the jester had to brag
Tender be that lavender crush
Never paid decisions to rush

The world can be awful and so unkind
What you seek sometimes you never find
Thought I found what I had needed
Words of wisdom I should have heeded
Thought I found what I was missing
Heard the words but wasn't listening
Should have attended to my intuition
Made one more reckless decision
Only if I took better care
I suppose you had to be there

Experience is its own teacher
Should have paid attention to the coming feature
Felt the pounding in my chest
So hard these days to put it to rest
But I've tried to do my best
Ever grateful and still so blessed

Now I'm left to pick up the pieces
Day by day the pain decreases
A new life now to begin
Harder now to let anyone in
Not so eager to be persuaded
Sometimes feeling slightly jaded

Now I could wallow in bitterness and sorrow
But that would not improve my tomorrow
Best to face it and learn something
Then it would have been all for nothing
A fool is doomed to repeat the same mistakes
Restless the mind hence senses forsakes
