Beautiful Decay Ryan Johnson

Think silently

But act out loud,

The game has paused –

Feet are stuck in concrete.

There’s a story to be told,

Trying to draw blood from life,

Lives are erected like doll houses,

Each one feeling like a strange town.

The hamster is spinning in his wheel,

He too is going nowhere.

About DiAnne Ebejer

I am retired and live on the East coast of Florida where I spend much of my time reading, playing with photography and trying to write some "poetry and then some" at I care deeply about many things and wish there was much more love and compassion in this world today. I also have a part time blog "Thought You Might Like This" used for special projects and occasional things of interest
