Scattered…

“Sell your cleverness and buy bewilderment.
Cleverness is mere opinion, bewilderment is intuition.”― Rumi

scattered

I’m grinding out the words
unable to find
the string,
to put them together
and make sense of
tone…

I’m regurgitating
tales
of other lives, I’ve lived
hoping to make this one count…

Yet the momentum
breaks down
when I’m scattered
in thought
and fog
threatens
to obscure the facade,
of a nonchalant
response…

And my appearance is weak
and my soul
is tired,
I can’t drum up support
for this new
configuration
between the lines
of bewilderment and praise…

It’s all just words
jumbled together
making no sense,
just displays of inadequacy
performing moods
of inevitable
vibration…

so the audience
went home
and silence spoke
in the open heart theatre
of my longing
to be known…
