No words for It

Thought about It,
Should be words,
To describe
What I need to.

There are no words,
Maybe I don’t know
Enough of them,
To explain.

Tonight I saw things,
Felt too.
No letters or numbers,
Are useful right now.

Feelings were abstract,
Puddle-shaped,
Words don’t fit
Into that shaped box

I know words,
I know feelings
But today
they are divorced.

My feelings are
Hidden and unseen
Maybe you know?
Can you see It?

Feed dreams, starve nightmares

Like two kids fighting for attention,
They both want my energy and focus
Both starved, fighting for growth.

My thoughts feed into their digestion
So the nightmares won’t die.
Should not have reflected on it.

The nightmare won’t get nothing
But suffocation,
It cannot live within me.

I will feed the dream
That ending was happy,
I choose that ending..

A voided moment

This nothingness is boring
nothing ever happens.
What to do next?
Who shall I text?

I do nothing but slide fingers
across touch screens,
Can’t remember when
I was last touched

Motivation has left
the smile went too.
Maybe they booked
a cheap holiday,
To escape my way.

The Midlander

I know who my people are
they behave like me
they sound like me,
but not all look like me.
In my middle England.

I like it’s rain, I miss it,
though some may think
I like the sun
Without knowing
That’s my names even Sunny.

I walk faster now
with no destination in mind.
Because I am a lost Midlander
in a capital city
out of the Midlands.

Stand together

More innocent people died,
Can’t stop thinking why.
What was really achieved
Apart from universal sadness.

Now the fuels feeding fires,
And the eyes look at me,
They look with curiousity.
As I follow the same routes.

Everyone’s hurting because
Of a few with no mind of their own.
Everyone should have the power,
To stop these things happening.

Let’s stand together.
Not apart!
Together like our lands once were,
Before the nature divided them.

Disillusions of light

Each day
The sun rises,
Now the morning is beautiful.

Later on
Stars may shine,
The night seems so enchanting!

A dirty boy is bathed,
His mother is happy
With a crystal clean outcome.

Light at the end of the tunnel?
Nope, just more trains
In this darkness.

Light hits something.
Probably causing some beauty,
Because people are positive.

Seems as though,
Impermanence of light
Means beauty will not last.

Prepare for the darkness,
And remember the light.
What brightness will tomorrow bring?

If any.

Karma Coach

What a huge change
Since I last got on
This smelly coach
With its cigarette smell.
Before I felt my nerves,
Now I’ve got sensations.
I let them all be,
As now I just observe.
I’m sitting next to Nuno again,
But you don’t know him.
He’s a happier man,
Since he found vipassana.
We met on day zero,
Now it’s day eleven.

Time for the karma coach
To take us back home
To a new world,
With a new US president
And an equanimous new me.
There is no better method
Than taking the Karma Coach.

(Day 11 of a meditation course, poem 12/12 in this series. See introduction.)
