Seeing Through Shade

Seeing Through Shade

A Poem by James

Mine is a world
that see's through the shade
of my own forgotten lust
for more 

For more
of the tragedies of sin
and waste

For more 
of the time wasted
wasted on waiting
waiting on wasted

Music and dance
hold not a chance
for a melody
lost to deaf ears

The sky is dark
on a hot sultry 
and the waves pound hard 
on the shore.

Author's Note

This was a two minute-drill poem for me. When I want to write, but can't I will set a timer for two minutes and see what comes out.

i teach my students freewriting...set a timer for five minutes and just write as much off the top of your great...

did for this poem as well.
for me the shades are drawn tightly....and dreams are welcome...for some of us the melodies are all we have to listen waves on the shore...Thank you for this poem.

Got to hand it to you James, your muse served you well in a two minute drill poem. Mine wouldn't even have turned up on time. There would have been a blank page. You know I might even have a go at one of these mysekf one day. Probably after a glass of vino. A good substitute when the muse is misbehaving.

Two minutes of lust, sin, a bit of sultry pounding on the shore.
I would say it was a great two minutes.
