two lives at once

two lives at once :

to live two lives at once
might seem strange
deranged
even
and yet,

to true lovers
who love people,day-jobs and arts alike
it might not seem such a preposterous proposition

the rush of living true
each time the pen is picked up
and words flow with the ferocity of a wild writer in his youth –
dishing out poems at every pocket of emptiness arising from his day job
a good facade, says he
to live in the present
and access the past,
filled with words and only words;

the rush of living true
each time a task is handed out
and the clock ticks
the satisfaction of completing something lingers
and once it is done,
the invariable time of rest, food and love arises

beyond all this,
between love, a day job and rest
pockets of emptiness that signal to the pen
it is time to write
and the past must flow
through the veins of a wild writer in his youth
, who is in a love affair of sorts.
