My words like fleeting memories.

I talk so much about the words,
And where to find them,

I stay up late at night thinking over this,
Getting little sleep,
Feeling empty inside,
And I wonder how it got to this.

I see all the beauty around me,
Fleeting,
And soon replaced,
Like my memories.

How can I make sense of nonsense?
That's all it is.

Forrest Gump taught me,
Jenny, I don't know if Momma was right or if, if it's Lieutenant Dan. I don't know if we each have a destiny, or if we're all just floating around accidental-like on a breeze, but I, I think maybe it's both. Maybe both is happening at the same time.

I'm looking for meaning in the possible meaningless,
We're all searching through the sands of time to find treasure,
And we bottle that sand and we shelve it.

We may look back at that sand and regard it as the treasure we need to find,
But we keep digging,
We keep looking for that treasure,
When it was in front of us this whole time.

Appreciate the little things in life,
That's what we're all forgetting.
Like most of my poems, created in mere seconds, one thought going from one place to the next, and this is what comes from the depths of my mind.

I agree. It's very beautiful. Thanks for the fav, BTW. It's not letting me post my own comments on walls or deviations, so I kinda had to cut in here. :D

Thank you very much! And you favorited it too, which I should thank you for :D

 

I wonder why you can't post on your own profile...

I don't know. No comments or anything. I have no idea how to complain or tell anyone (let alone who to tell), so I'm just kinda stuck until it figures itself out.
But it's a massive win-win. Good work for a favorite, right?
