Spelling ages historic decay


Imprisoned this body to the ravages of time

Wandering lost soul of youth,bones do not brave boldness

Riddles of age seek youths sweet rhyme

Fire brings comfort and chases away the coldness

Branches intertwine in families blood

Spelling ages historic decay

Mind drifting into riddles that flood

Inked pools of memories dissolved without structure do they lay

My disease is time braved by the soul

Wiseness is traded for youths fool

Unconscious ridicule betrays the minds goals

These are which bear the seeds of the pool

  1. Wow, I love the way the words play with age like it is a material concept. "My disease is time" says it all! You have a unique perspective of writing that I like.

  2. Was using Shakespeare's method of writing in this poem without the thou and thee and hence added.My inspiration for this poem.Shakespeare Sonnet 12


    When I do count the clock that tells the time,
    And see the brave day sunk in hideous night;
    When I behold the violet past prime,
    And sable curls,all silvered o'er with white;
    When lofty trees I see barren of leaves,
    Which erst from heat did canopy the herd,
    And summer's green all girded up in sheaves,
    Borne on the bier with white and bristly beard,
    Then of thy beauty do I question make,
    That thou among the wastes of time must go,
    Since sweets and beauties do themselves forsake
    And die as fast as they see others grow;
    And nothing 'gainst Time's scythe can make defence
    Save breed,to brave him when he takes thee hence.

    1. I enjoyed learning where your inspiration came from. Somtimes for me it is a photo, a line in a comment, or a reminder from a song. So many places to get inspiration!

    2. Very true Christy my favorite is when it just pops into your head out of nowhere and the wow effect happens
