Beauty breaths

Beauty breaths

expanding

a short video to accompany a not so short poem…

Enjoy

*****

Woke up this morning

out of sugar

to coat words with

expanding

my inner thoughts

while living in dream land.

Lately I have realized

nothing really changes

it just moves from one generation

to the next

wrapped in new paper

with bigger bows

a label that reads

you need me

right?

Each time I see the words

“limited edition”

I ask myself

limited to what?

I wonder if life is limited

is this the only edition?

Ever have moments perceived

as purposeless?

Question why leaves fall

only in the fall?

Ever try to catch your heart

in mid-flight

before damage sits in

but at the time feelings

ignite

those thoughts are not brought to light?

I picture us all

standing in hallways

full of exits

debating which one to use

when

life sorts out real and pretend.

I question what prompts us

to leap

into the fire

knowing in the end

nothing will be left but ashes

and emptiness.

Expanding

morning and at twilight

tell me

what is on the other side

of our minds

that never reaches the page

instead stored away

with rage??
