Jam Tomorrow

Relentless now, this ticking clock

that heralds in a dismal front.

Inured in cloak from all the joy

that once was mine in different time.

No words can grasp this sentence

nor take away the cup from tired lips,

whose singing gone

resigned to other-worldly song…

(The minstrel choked upon the tune.)


No paint can catch this barren world

in which I’m forced to play my part;

Around me now in stark relief

the fragments of a heart once full

of dreams and inspirations


 discarded in a burn.


“It’s all a checkerboard of nights and days”

so old Khayyam*  with wisdom says

Philosophy upon my brow

yields little comfort



‘ now.’

Author's Notes:

Google 'Jam Tomorrow' if stuck.

A wonderful piece. Images are very strong. Love the line about taking away the cup from tired lips. Excellent!!

This is so sad a write but done with your usual artistic flare. I felt the feeling behind the words so intensely I feel compelled to say "cheer hopeful" and that is something I rarely do when commenting. I usually try and seperate the author's feelings from what is being expressed in the poem because they may not be feeling it at present but I know this is so very heartfelt today and tomorrow for you. So, have hope, Alison..... the changing tides may throw us off course but maybe the destination won't be as bad as we fear.

As always, very though provoking and intense.
You are a poetic inspiration.
