NaPoWriMo 28 Deceptive


NaPoWriMo 28

Deceptive

We live
slicing life
into chunks of presumptions
of what each time frame might fetch

A finite number of years to play
a few for forgetting the joys of it
some to be selfish and selfless
all at once – call it love
a few for moving on
a stretch of mere subsistence
ignoring clouds that hang around
waiting in vain
to take the shape of imaginations
and soon despair settles in
like dust over cities at dusk

Deceptions galore
The way we give up on seasons
before they flower
The way we let life go gray
blindly telescoping into each other
ignoring life spilling all over the place
trespassing over our incompetent gridlines
