Love, a wonderful battlefield.
Worrying, wondering and wandering
Lost, in love and gone
Unsure, always under stress
Always waiting for an unsure end
Lost, in love
With someone who you can never tell
With a life that could be gone in instants
A wanderer walks this battlefield
Watching for the next attack, the next fight
Eventually, one day,
The battle will be over
Who won, who lost?
Neither, for we all die, lost in love.
Cold sweat, fever
Fear of what is foretold
A land of dreams,
Blues beyond the soul
Boxed up, drafted,
Re-routed until posted
Of where to go.
Darkened by the unknown
Conquer fear and fright
Is post 101.
Hurray. After three days of battling the 100th post blues, I finally decided to post it. This marks a new milestone so soon after my previous one (100 followers) as my 100th Post here on wordpress. Yay, milestones.
Have a great day
Stop and go
Find a home
Particularly for writing
Taking all time
I just want to slow down
I just want to write
And take more time to do what I want
(C) Richard Piland, 2016
A single feather falls
Black as night without a star
Fine, supple bristles
With little sign of wear
The feather comes down
Slowly, without effect from wind
Falling from somewhere high above
Purposeless now, without its friends
Simply falling for the sake of falling
But upon landing, it is gripped.
Given new purpose from a face of wonder
A body of youth
A child’s simple smile
Holding this beautiful feather
With the wonders of the world held within.
Firing up them engines,
Revving loudly, staring ahead
Opponent besides, also igniting
Red light, yellow light, green light
Sweat beading, speeding faster
Burning through fuel on an empty tank.
Wheels turning at a burning rate.
Everything is blurring around.
Checkered flag in sight.

Like stones falling to the ground,
Like a thousand tiny painful needles,
Like the thundering chorus of tin roofs.
Like hail, bringing pain and suffering down on you.

Finding fickle fantasy
Fearing frightening foes
For figuring fanatics,
Fight for freedom

This one was not easy heh.
