Curved Wheels – Written Thursday 25th November 2021 (Aged 46)

Curved Wheels

there is a curved wheel
which demonstrates
how you feel
there are tudor gardens
saturated in teal
there are verandas
which we haul ourselves onto
a kaleidoscope of stories
painted as we are
in battleship grey
these are our lives
and this is what fate will whisk away
we are just intense moments
found in other peoples lives
we are worker bees
connected to a hive
and all the time
emotions form and pool
as I quarry for mental stability
and long for the correct tool
i am lost to you
just as I am found by you
and the curved wheels
we spin like a life lottery
rush through all that we feel
