"Bowing gratefully to all of my subjects, 'thank you. Thank you. The pleasure is mine." Nah, I'm just kidding. We're all kings together.'"
~Thesilentraven


The misty quiet roars delicately.
Lonely as a ghost in a room
full of living people.
Crowded as a room
empty of paintings.
Crackle, crackle
in my ear.
Unbeknownst to you,
I am a writer,
a poet,
a madwoman.
But you rush past,
oblivious to the creeping
beauty all around.
Ears stuffed with money.
Or lost time,
if that is what you prefer.
I am a wanderer around purpose-
seekers,
A Butterfly among ants.
I know what my destination is,
the question is,
do you know yours?
Stray thoughts,
flit through,
never to be seen again.

Working in an art gallery, bored out of my mind, not many visitors, too many cars pass.

Nope, but I'll get around to it. :)

Have you ever posted any of your art on here? Apparently the Boston University's art gallery thought you were pretty good :)

Thank you!                                (because I don't consider myself to be   that good of an artist)

Poetry doesn't often make sense, I wrote a poem about that once, but I don't think I posted it on here.

That's amazing, sneaker drawing or no :) I rather wish our art gallery had more diversity, artist and art wise.

I don't get this poem. :(

That's super cool that you worked at an art gallery. :)

I've had my work up at Boston University's art gallery. :) It was a drawing of a sneaker, don't ask, I didn't choose to draw a sneaker, but that was the assignment.

Never compare your life with others, as you have no idea what their journey is all about.

:) Thank you so much! I so very enjoy all of your comments. This is one of the works of which I am very proud of.

Yes, I work in my town's local co operative art gallery. Rather boring at times, and it doesn't get much traffic, but I love playing my flute, singing, and dancing in it :)

You work in an art gallery? That would seem interesting... maybe not, though.

Ah, Ms. Stargirl! This poem is simply phenomenal, and I cherished every line. 'The misty quiet roars delicately' is a favorite among other favorites. I shall cut my praise short (which is unfair to you) and say wonderful job!
