Scandalous Supposition

Misery lies within the hollow depths of nothingness
a spiraling void wrought through shallow minds
obsessing on circumstantial myths
situations miffed

(what-if next year my lover leaps from a cliff?)

leading to complete hysteria
in a bottomless pit
while the present moment flies away
a dove in search of inner peace.

Prompt inspiration: 3WW (hollow, misery, shallow)

I agree, no good living life on 'what if's' when tomorrow may not even arrive, let alone next year...LOL
Nicely said once again Laurie!

That's where I went too, Laurie, that this is actually funny, a depiction of foolishness, a foolishness I have actually worn myself, but wear no longer. I am amused from that position.

Ditto to what everyone else said...wonderfully done!

Mary said...

These words certainly did not inspire cheerful poetry, did they? However, a dove in search of inner peace sounds good!

weel-written and true, I often betray the moment by worrying about
the next.
