Now, See

Mysteriously, out of nowhere
It unconsciously wells up and flares
Emotionally comes to light
With precision, blinding the sight

The tear rolls down
The tear flows down
The tear holds down
The fear. Known now
What the tear releases
What the tear foresees is
That the tear unleashes
The tears' uneasiness

Be it, woman or man
Be it, boy or girl
The tear demands
Unveiling to the world
The real deal
What is hidden inside
Revealing and unmasking
What facades hide
...but you now see



Just when I think there is nothing left to write I settle in with a cup 'o Joe and my fingers began to type. Then I'm swamped with ideas, coming into remembrance. Expressions may be unorthodox and sometimes relentless.
Thought I didn’t have much else to say. 

But me, with my friend at hand, we didn't come to play! Passions and emotions are expounding and exuding. All are flowing freely, not yet concluding. Plenty of kinetic energy, 
freelanced brainwaves, empowered poetic literacy. Just having a ball, my way!
Even jabbering and gibbering and sometimes making no sense. But expressing my inner soul, at my mind's expense. Wondering what is left? What will come from my next brew?
Check back and you may find, it is all about you!
Hmmm, Next?



Inspired Writings

About the Author

Hi. I'm PJ Payne and I can remember as a child how freshly brewed coffee started my mother's day and most of her evenings. It is reminiscent of calm and simplicity and has stayed with me ever since.  Now, as an adult, it is in these moments of peace that I am able to exhale, reflect and embrace the essence of my mind and spirit through words.

First thing in the morning before my day begins, I go to my special place of peace, perfect peace: My Coffee and Thee. No matter the environment, the aroma of coffee takes me to that corner of nostalgia. 

 With pen at hand and precious moments of serenity, I express innermost emotions and thoughts in short stories, poetry, and prose; some even sprinkled with my dry wit and humor. My concept: "There is a poem for every situation, prose for every circumstance and a card for every special day and special person."

We think and we think
And we think again
Thinking, as we think
Where does it  all end

Really it's not as complex
As we make it out to be
Really seems far-fetched
To just let 'it' be

...the Mind


The Mind

The Future-
Full of mysteries
Where will you end up?
Where to begin?
There are so many hiccups
With whom or where you will be?
How to handle disappointments?
Or your low points?
So many questions

There, for the asking is relief
Just when you need a pick-up
Know this-
There is a God!
Of the many questions
About your fate
Every hour
Every minute
To the date
He has answers
He is the Answer
You don't even have to
