Poetic CalculationSubtracting seconds from infinity,
searching for my loss of creativity.
Looking for waves of poetic expression,
words of my dreams hidden impression.
Adding up the forgotten emotion,
reality found in the commotion.
Profundities begin to descend,
as I can no longer pretend,
or deny the things that burn inside me,
a battle of a long hidden insercurity.
Finally defeating despair of the past,
as light on my hope has been cast.
Unwinding my minds twisted road,
the words now have been bestowed.
Found in life's simple calculations,
past additions and timely subtractions.
