With Wanderlust Until Midnarust

With Wanderlust Until Midnarust

A Poem by DoormanDan

Just me getting back into the swing of things with writing. Consider this a demo, or a warm-up, if you want.

With Wanderlust Until Midnarust

In my soul, calescent campfires cantillate
Of faraway frontiers, where sands scintillate
And bohemian dreams made of nylon twine
Rid Life's grapevines of sour berries saturnine

I can see sapience in my impatience
So today, I will set sail with ebullience
For one day, I will succumb to senescence
And my frail heart's harp will conclude its cadence

You always tell me that this lifestyle I idolize
Leads not to the ruby corals I visualize
But rather, to savage seas that don't apologize
For the naive voyagers they contently capsize

But why should we fear sacrificium for Wanderlust
When we are already doomed to melt in the Midnarust?

I say the tropic prospects eclipse the perils

Author's Note

Overall, it took eight hours of writing, over the course of four days, but I've finally "finished" the poem I was working on (the first time in over a month). I actually kinda feel like a writer again! I put finished in quotations because personally, this poem is really just a warm up for me, as I've been out of practice with serious writing for more than four months. It does have a message in it, but overall, the poem, in my opinion, feels like it could use more, but I've got nothing else to add to it right now. I may rewrite it someday, but for now, I'm just going to leave it as is, which is better than forcing lines, and move on to the REAL writing! Until next time! :)
