recyclable trash?

Updated on March 3, 2011

 i am not a poet.  it is not my nature.  so this is an attempt and probably the only one you will ever see... and it is okay if you tell me not to give up my day job, i have no delusions of grandeur here.

DUMPS

DOLDRUMS

DEPRESSION

 DOWN

DEVASTATED

So low for so long

trying to look up from my shoes seems like an impossiblity.

OH, hey, a little polish might help.

REFLECTION

REVERSAL

REVELATION

REVIVAL

REEXAMINATION

Glare off  those shoes makes it uncomfortable.

Makes me look away

Makes me think

Makes me gaze straight ahead. 

VISION

VIEW

VISERAL

VITALITY

VISIT

i fall as I trip over a stone.

I think, so much for looking around.

BALANCE

BALLAST

BALL

BOUNCING

BALLET

a dance not for one as clumsey as I.

MODERATION

MODESTY

MALESTROM

MALICE

MATURITY.

by now i just need to accept and face the glare off my shoes, no matter how painful it it.

      awe, thankyou Nikkij, i had read quite a few on here and wanted to attempt it. but i think i am too much of a concrete person to do this much. i am still shaking from it. i do appreciate you taking the time to read it though.
