Limitless You Know

Limitless You Know

A Poem by KWP

waste another breath I shall not

in the shallow waters of your mind


life cannot be lived in a glass house you know 

we all must fall and break 

teach ourselves just how to pick up the pieces 


for many a year I tried winning you over 

a vain attempt 

for those (like me) 

who do not believe in self incarceration 


I say the wrong thing 

I do the wrong thing 

hell knows 

I even think the wrong thing - oooh la la 

- in your eyes 


in this limitless world 

we have limited time 

while you consider 

dusting your vase 

while whispering the hearsay 

of your bleak existence 


I shall continue the dance baby

to the new beginning with no end 

for my darling 

life really just is an adventure waiting to be had

I loved the honest thoughts and the perfect ending my friend.
"I shall continue the dance baby
to the new beginning with no end

I liked the above lines my friend. Thank you for sharing the amazing poetry and your thoughts.

Strong feelings expressed in a matter of fact way. Not a bad thing. Sometimes people only understand a curt tone. everyone has a froggy day where they need to air out built up feeling.
In my mind I can hear the rift to American Woman, blazing in the backdrop.

As I get older I find myself veering away from those who do not value what a friendship or companionship is. I don't want to settle in life. I want to be engaged in every moment with people who aren't only worried about the latest celebrity gossip or social trends. I can relate to this piece. Great work.

Your poem feels a little bit harsh to me, but everything you are saying is well-stated in a powerfully acerbic way. It's hard to leave people to their dreary approaches in life, but I'd rather keep mine zipped & just go the way I believe in, rather than harping on others for what I perceive as things they are lacking. You do a perfect description of this kind of person & how I feel when I watch their self-defeating antics. But I'd rather write about the long & difficult journey of learning how to do life better, rather than wasting my talent being a critic. It's just a difference in approach, between us, but your writing is superb & no doubt very relatable to many (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Life is too short to be bogged down by negativity and conflict. Don't waste any more breath, but do live your life the way you see fit. Been there and left it behind.

I keep rocks in pocket for this reason.

Usually I just end up throwing them at my own house though.

And then I pick them up again, right after I fix the windows with my bloody paws. Again and again and... so forth and so on.

Couldn't imagine you minding your P's and Q's or tip toeing around folk. You come across as feisty, independent, smart, funny, not the traits associated with a woman that would kowtow to any body.
And I guess this you are saying at the end when you say you're gonna shake your thang !!!
Good morning, hope you are well m'lady :))
