The wheels are in motion

It’s quiet outside
Maybe too quiet
The mind is restless
It won’t go to sleep

It seeks answers
To a million questions
Solutions to problems
Searching, waiting, and watching.

The heart joins in
Beating slowly, in a deep rhythm
Music that pushes the mind
Forward on its unknown quest

Yet there is something missing;
The mind knows it is alone
But longs for something more
Than just the ordinary

The body can’t take it anymore
It craves for a piece of the action
It twists and turns
Spinning out of control

The wheels are in motion
The quietness all gone now
The fire burns brightly within
A spark is all it took.

  1. Congrats on being freshly pressed. A charged bit.
    Keep writing. 🙂

    PS : There’s a grammatical error in the first line, it should be “It’s” instead of “Its”.

  2. A very lovely and visual poem, that does force a visual interpretation as soon as one ‘listens’ to the tune of the words. And a nice image to go with this post I must say ….

  3. I love this. I’ve spent many a night like this – it’s like that pause before action takes place. And then it all starts to move forward – and you have no control anymore – the wheels are taking you towards where you need to be.
