Numerous times I have attempted to write a book containing a collection of my poems, but because of my slight ADHD and lack of motivation, I can manage to get out one and a half before I put it away for two months and forget completely about it. Here are two of them.
Kindly decline the world when it offers
its baroque and convoluted prizes.
Even when the angels come down
in a heavenly mist,
be not tempted or enticed in
all that they can give.
Instead remember the dutiful
love sitting at home
beside the hearth.
No siren may replace the fidelity
remaining between you and
the one you call your forever.
Let it be known that forever
hardly ever means forever anymore.
Pull from your subconscious
that once you choose,
to change is to do more than
perturb your own living,
but to make a complete turnaround
for all else involved.
Whether you choose forever now or
please make forever our infinity.
