"Coffee And A Sunrise..."

"Coffee And A Sunrise..."

A Poem by Chris
"

Catching a breath

"

This was inspired while listening to Tabby Mac

 

 

 

Ever cry watching a sitcom

as it's your life ...on view.

And the laughter sounds

as tears fall down

and down ...down

'til the tracks burn

your very soul.

 

"Coffee And A Sunrise..."

 

Coffee and a sunrise -

a moment to breathe

a whisper to a shared God

about ...nothing - cause the words

still come and the thoughts

still follow and the dreams

...happen

and it hurts

inside

and the eyes burn

and I want

I want...

WANT...

more than 

...this NOW

and yesterday isn't enough anymore

I'm more ...MORE... than that

than this

than tomorrows' loneliness

tomorrow's numbness

emptiness

silence...

I wish

wishwishwish... W I S H

 

I know

KNOW

...coffee's cold

but I touched

touched...

being alive ...again.

 

Chris

Such a passionate cry ripples, the echoes warmly expand until even the swifts on high hear the tone...absolutely beautiful, devastatingly so but beautiful...

your welcome.... I will be back for more, that's for sure :)
Aloha Chris, I loved this, it beautifully sad but asks one to stop and be still. We need to do that more often I think. Lovely words. Izzy

I always enjoy the way you use text to emphasize emotion and voice. I could hear you reading this piece in my head and while it has a melancholy feel, there's also the bit of jubilation at feeling again. miss hearing you. Gotta get my life back on track with my writing and poetry.

Mal, how goes life out your way?
Repetitions and pacing very effective here. emotions less linear than direct statement, gives immediacy to the inner life of the poem, makes it shareable. Vague about the details of pain and loss--more people can relate that way. I love the upreach in this. We are more than our past, our losses.

Pen and paper and your cup of coffee. That's all that's needed sometimes.

Taking the time to reflect if only for a few moments. TV sit coms are full of parody which is what makes them. If we see ourselves in them or in 'soap opera' then I guess it is because the half hour is so jam packed with pathos and emotion it is easy to see us amongst it all. A very readable and relatable sad piece.
