Pay attention pay atteningon hard to pay
Let’s pretend these are more than words.
What if they were passing through you
floating down your stream of consciousness
one at a time
two at a time
each defined by the judgments feelings memories of a lifespan?
If only they could,
You would would not be me.
In all honesty, these are only words
attempts to capture an essence of thought
an impression of a ghost
hidden somewhere between the pen and the paper
mediocre poetry thought static
between the pages of your notebook.
Pay attention are you paying attention?
Let’s pretend these are more than words
these are just words
who am i kidding
moments in time
suspended in pixels on a computer.
i just keep writing things down
and hope with myself
that in the end it’ll be worth it.
genius or madness
If you know how to feel, you know how to find
the secret to good reading is believing the eyes;
Know what you see is what’s known inside
the secret to good reading is believing the eyes.
you are what you read
