Care Less


and basements

carpets in blue

a box of some occasion

spilling out family jewels

angel in the shower

and clothes that don’t fit

a bald woman dying

frantic fire is lit

her sectioned off mirror

in pieces of eight

illuminate nothing

you complicate

On top of the Bliss

above the below

a silent hello

from someone you think

you ought to know

but when the baggage is dropped

and the car driven home

you puzzle the pieces

searching alone

in and out of strange faces

you discover a fact

you’re bored with the game

and you’ve lost interest fast

you don’t ย care who they are

or where the hell they are at

what truly matters

is not what you find

what truly matters

is what’s left behind

    1. No matter how much we are told by older people when we are young, that time is precious and that life is short, we waste it anyway. If I could live it over I would dispense with the emotional drama, never marry anyone, fulfill my destiny and have my daughter and raise her completely alone. I would have traveled and never taken anyone seriously, especially in relationships. Wisdom comes at a price: the loss of time you can never get back. The second half of my life will elicit much better poetry, I promise!

    1. Yes, I suppose it is bluebee but the end result is the elimination of that emptiness by moving on from what was and is for many people a circular waste of time looking for an ideal that doesn’t exist. It’s good to see you here again! ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Thank you Bluebee ๐Ÿ™‚ At heart I’m an optimist with cynical attributes, but always positive. hugs
