60 seconds and surely ego tripping

60 seconds and surely ego tripping

A Poem by Shirlena

to my vexing there has been

60 seconds of melancholy

contemplating I should regret

what has occurred an apparition...you

had to remind myself to remember

discovering it’s not so much a habit

as I had ruminated the situation

not suggesting you’re replaceable

as you go on fulfilling a need

required to console these trolls of doubt

figuring your gratitude over facts

I didn't surrender you to shade  

long before now

no possibilities for luminosity

among all of this sumptuous jasper sprawling… grandeur

with dangling certitude

plenty time to deliberate ‘bout self

calculating your blessing before you rest

or maybe I got the summation

cell intercepted one call… I rolled and did not answer


maybe…I assumed wrong

Thank you x.
Shirlene, you never cease to impress me with your thoughts and ideas. This again finds someone on the other end...not too sure of their place or the poet not too sure. You make me think when I read and I like that.
