This Mellow Mood of Mine: a poem

Updated on November 21, 2013

art & poetry by Brian Loewer

This mellow mood of mine

has me watching my wrist watch.

Tick, the talking clock

Rants my day away...

as I lay my head on feathers thread,

with my buzz cut

and belly fed-

I think about mid day rays.

I lie awake-

Ponder moments gone

and watch the skylights-

Silent song.

Looking into the vast

memories of my past,

consciousness slips away...

"I'm hangin' by a thread.

Goodbye, like a begger's bread,

or a button

barely thread."

Frail day hanging there-

Melancholy night, raising here-

Everything falls to a yesterday.

See you later everyday.

      I wonder how many see the suicide in this?

      Moms, I'm just glad you enjoy reading. I wonder if it's even worth posting most the time. So, it's nice to know you're still checking my hubs out!

      -Happy Saturday... err Sunday for you.

      Thanks Justin, I wrote this one a while back and wasn't sure if it was even worth publishing. So, I appreciate the vote of confidence.
