The gravity of sadness.

The gravity of sadness.

A Poem by andrew mitchell

The lightness of being
overwhelmed by the heaviness
of a moment
struck a chord
in an ocean blue
in a momentary lapse
beyond reason
through a mountain of life
a waterfall of tears.

love the imagery...reminds me of Pink Floyd...
and Moody Blues meeting in a new dimension...
there is a heaviness in life that can't be ignored...and if we feel the lightness of being, we may be fooling ourselves.

I love pushing the limits on writing poetry. Not everyone's cup of tea but maybe a few will enjoy the twists and turns, the simple, the depth of simplicity, the bizarre and the ridiculous. Strindberg.. more..
