Stumble

Stumble

A Poem by Corset

I am always...
stepping over things

baby gates, laundry baskets

your words into dial tone
their messy cardiac mass

A friend said;
"If something bites you
or gives you pain"

"Lay it gently down
again

Then,  move on"

I am always stepping
over things...

Things that fall
items dropped or laid to rest
A sunrise, a sun set

everyday,
something else to stumble on.

I love your writing style, because you capture the everyday simple things of our daily lives.

And that is the beauty of poetry: each poet's perspective is unique like DNA.

WELL DONE

Thank you again, I appreciate your visits
We all stumble in life and then have to move forward again. There are many pitfalls in life that we have to climb out of but oh the learning we do in the process. We may not see it at the time but upon rising we take note. Love the imagery in this piece the baskets and the sunset.

drifting on the stream of a perceived reality
stumbles always occur when we are thinking ahead of ourselves.

yes indeed, thank you!
this sounds like me...i walk steady for about a day at a time, and in between..do lots of stumbling...
that's what real life is...stumbling, stumbling stumbling.

I'm clumsy as hell my friend, thank you for stopping in
I stumbled over the prospect of love once and pushed it aside. I still wonder if I was right or not. Life has puzzles within it sometimes. :/

Nice writing Corset.

i hear that Corset ... well presented ..i was right their with your hero over each obstacle ..such tragedy multiplied when the sunrise and set are stumbling blocks ..brings to mind and heart all those who suffer depression ..a real epidemic it seems :(((
