Tracks on My Soul

Life, long lived,
shows it's journey
on the outside
(but you can't see my inside)
my body, decaying
my nerves, fraying


I crawl
Try to reach
As if...

And then I'm still here
And you're still there
And the tracks of your words
Are rust on my soul

This is a magpie tale.

Hello Friends,
I'm back from vacation and having a hard time swimming in the pool of real life  as opposed to the surreal reality which is a cruise.  Will blog about that later.  Meanwhile, didn't want to miss a Magpie.  So many great, inspirational writers on this meme.

Excellent...and yes, the last two lines are awesome, they resonate with me as well as many others, I am sure.

Oh yes, life's journey certainly shows on the outside! Nicely done.

Oh my my!! These words just lingered on in my head...
Hope you had a fabulous cruise.. It's great to have you back at Mag!!! :)

Jenny said...

Geez. You should go away all the time. If this is the result of your brain being defragged. Wow.

OK, that's not true.

Your writing is always sublime.

Absolutely brilliant return from cruise into reality.
