My friend Shea Wesley is a poet and he doesn’t even know it. In his writing, you can take a voyage. He is also a lyricists, and just like me, has a love for words.
His words ebb and flow within him, and that is why I encouraged him to write a guest post for this blog.
I am so happy with the result!
These are his words:
Too Tired to Discuss
By Shea Wesley
Your mystery is a seatbelt.
Holding words hostage,
For a five star crash
But are we cruising?
Or is this another off-road trip?
Sure, the track is long, but it will land you
On the checkerboard.
Kissing bricks and swigging milk,
With gear head millionaires boasting corporate sponsorship.
The early arrival promised in your interstate,
Falls inferior to the great landscapes,
Living throughout my scenics,
And I dare you to rush and miss a page.
This book tells an unwritten account
With quill in your hand and ink in mine.
See, you need me more because
If desperation hit me hard enough,
I’d use my finger and let the ink soak into the skin
As symbolism of the poetry that stirs within.
An arrogant muse you lay,
Fueling each stroke of pen.
With all T’s crossed there’s no doubt
That you win.
Or so you are convinced,
But how the turntable does spin.
