Time To Go

Contributed by jamesstockdale on Tuesday, 3rd September 2019 @ 02:51:28 PM in AEST
Topic: poets

It`s time to go
Wouldn`t you know
Sharing my thoughts and dreams
Helped me not
It seems
My words did nothing for you or me
That`s just how it seems
The roses in my head no longer bloom
The rays of hope that once allowed me to cope
Are now clouded by gloom and doom
My heart is vacant
My soul has become complacent
My time has come to go
Wouldn`t you know
I believe it to be true
I think it should be so
We both know
It`s time to go

"My words did nothing for you or me"

Only part of this line is true in my opinion

Nicely written, applicable for so many circumstances, and a rumination I have shared on more than one occasion. Now I stay if it feels right, go when it doesn/'/t, and return when it does, without relying on external markers or indicators. Sometimes expectations and ego are the greatest spoilers of the simplest joys - creating and expressing.

/'/do not oppose a great force. Retreat until it weakens, then advance with resolution./'/

It gets like that sometimes...
the feeling
of wasted time and wasted words
will make ya feel
and blue...
well done.

you have changed a part of me
for the better with your words
that you have shared
you have gone back and
forward, in memory, and
in realization of nature
I believe it has helped you
to write, and what expectations
are there ever to write,
other than to continue to write
what in many ways someone
you do not know shall someday
read. You were there, you have
shown the way, in some way,
and in your words I learned something
I believe is important to me.
what is good, what is best,
what holds the most value,
A reader alone reads what
somebody wrote.
And for me, James
your words matter
quite a lot.

I try so hard not to put idioms, and phrases in my poems and it seems so hard not to. It feels like I/'/m cheating for some reason. I thought I/'/d share my unjustified paranoia with you. Sharing thoughts and dreams, treat those two things like your pin to your credit card and trust only when necessary but I think humans betray themselves and show who they are more often than not. We fuel our own downfall and we watch ourselves with omission

Nice, good job here. Some great lines and memorable wordplay.

//My time has come to go// ...

Underrated line right there! Time to go write another poem, Mister. 😉
