Brownian Motion

I wrote this a few months back in my notebook, though when this blog began I was unsure if online I should put. It is here now at the request of Ms Violet, she said she really likes it. Here goes...

Dynamic systems reaching equilibrium
We heard the notes when we were younger
Paths that cross but never meet
The same space under our feet
Collide before time runs out.

Shine the light on
I don't think I've ever heard this song
We may have never met before
Except before this time long ago.

A puzzle we'll never piece together
Perhaps the answer's in the beer
Becoming vivid where it is unclear.

As we wait for another night
When we meet under those dim lights
Relativity holds back the time.

On a bus or a train
Where we might have met on the same plane
Though sadly we looked the other way
Until that day...

The Mental Circus 4

Easier to move when I don't remember
Simpler to be when I am not under
Somewhat at peace with my disconnect
Moving on with all due respect

Embrace the man who is not really there
Except when you hold him he is suddenly aware
Of the words that are mostly unsaid
That nearly every door is marked red

Hard to understand why I reconnected
It simply was never intended
Letting go while holding on
It's not same as moving on

Now the man just looks around
Only to find that he has not been found
To not be there now he knows is for the best
Now his mind turns off the light and exits... stage left

Impression Haiku

Impress upon me
The impact might leave a hole
Impression of your soul

This is my first Haiku and I have linked it on Haiku Heights

The Mental Circus 3

Taking note of all that floats
Losing time and losing hope
However now I'm really stoked

Alone could be a state of mind
The tones invoked deep inside
'Least there's no need to dry my eyes

Mindscaping to my personal islet
While my body moves on auto-pilot
Must appreciate Ms. Violet

The Mental Circus 2

Nothing to regret and nothing to forget
Feel silly for my wishes and my silly self
She said no and she asked why
Still our home did not lay down and die
I guess we're gonna be just fine

That's not all though, its not the end
Not while my my mind does circles and bends
For I write not for her and I write not about her
I write for every time that I've made this heart burn
It happens whenever I get too close to the fire
Though I must before I can trust and admire

I can rest for now perhaps
Give rest to this wretched thinking cap
Though I know not how long my peace will last
Until my mind again starts running laps
