Inside Looking Out

windowEvery job I have ever had

Left me longing

Every dock door or window

A porthole on a sinking ship

The horizon, passing cars

Going places better than here

Biting my lip, stifling my tears

I assemble one more widget

I want to cut the cord

Instead, with clenched jaw,

I denounce my visions

  2. I like the positivity in the responses, but i can’t get away from the sadness of the piece. Like a dying fish on the shore, letting the dreams evaporate. Great piece, nicely worked….even if it did depress me slightly. hehe.

    • It had to reread the responses and you’re right, they are rather positive for a piece I wrote on the suffering of wage earning off anything other than your hearts-work.
      Oh man…if you keep digging you’ll find most of my poems are depressing. :/


      • Good you have a support hammock to relax in with the comments and free spirits. Don’t let the depression pull you under, it’s the little things that do that.
