Mediocrity

We could have been putting

Our souls in a mesmeric trance

By dancing like whirling dervishes

In cold, November mornings

To let our thoughts somersault

Out of our heads to appear

As glistening beads of perspiration

To evaporate into nothingness,

But we are far removed from all that,

For mediocrity has slowly devoured

The fire that was supposed to

Burn within our hearts forever!

  2. A gorgeous poem, Aaysid. So much said in a few artistic lines. I love the last three lines, ‘For mediocrity has slowly devoured The fire that was supposed to
    Burn within our hearts forever!’ Just beautiful Xx πŸ’–
