Coming back

 

I am coming back to you                                                                                       For no good reason                                                                                            Eyes wide open, empty hands                                                                              To kill time                                                                                                             On this meaningless journey                                                    

We have been estranged for a long while                                                 Connecting sporadically in futile thoughts

This insistency in deifying you                                                                          Made me a non-believer

You are no religion                                                                                                 No existential prerogative                                                                                      No calling, no mystery, no salvation

You see                                                                                                                      I am coming back to you                                                                                        For no good reason

Haha, that'll teach me to read too much into layout etc.

I should revise that comment then, the comfort gained by writing and self expression is always worth indulging in, at whatever level.

Look forward to reading you more,

David.

David,

Thank you for your insightful comments, I really appreciate them. Although the poem refers to coming back to writing poetry, I am afraid your view is still relevant!

You gave me too much credit for layout, I just made a mess of the cut and paste process.

Looking forward to continue exchanging with you.

Regards,

Jeannot

Hello Jeannot,

I suppose sometimes returning to a person/belief/lifestyle is for no other reason than comfort. I relate to that idea, but would personally kick against enacting it.

All the best,

David.

PS, is the style of the layout deliberate? (I suspect it is) it seems to indicate distance and probably a reluctance to fully connect, a hesitation almost.
