Not Even Rest

"Boredom: the desire for desires." ~ Leo Tolstoy

no catastrophes to write of
not even love
or manic highs
or even lies

no schemes to weave together now
don't take a bow
a dream escapes
my thoughts reshape

to float freely with clouds so white
calmness so tight
around my chest
not even rest


  1. does not sound like a bad place to be...smiles.

  2. I saw "Boredom: the desire for desires" on the reading list and thought you had penned it. The rest did not disappoint. Excellent piece.
