Plains of Mediocrity
A malaise can creep
A thick soup of indolence surrounds
Apathy fogs the mind
Contemplation suspended by indifference
Lethargic eyes wide staring but not seeing.
Barely alive, floating in icy brain freeze.
Love, hate, passion, anger, irrelevant
A languid saline nullifying emotion.
Laying in a state betwixt contentment and torment
Don't venture to deep into the quick sands of melancholy
Sucking life's desires they consume the weak.
Before you slip unnoticed into mind numbing nothingness
Gather up your emotions set them ablaze in your mind and you heart.
Love, hate, yearn, desire, want, need, dream, scream, laugh, hug,
Shout from the highest place
I am alive! I feel!
Your armour of emotions will save you.
Express, create, partake in life.
You will not join the ghosts that drift aimlessly,
Without hope unable to know true love or the depths of despair
Spent souls. Existing but not living
Never to escape the plains of mediocrity.
