poetry by j matthew waters

catching up with the midnight rider


I miss everything reckless
and I’m bound and determined
to make another run at it
barreling down river road
giving chase to the current

most times it’s impossible
to catch the leader (of the pack)
let alone decipher exactly
who put what in motion

even without all the facts
I’m prepared to move on
singing a song I’ve not forgotten
when once upon a time
I dreamed I was a little girl



march two thousand seventeen

    1. “He was a bold man that first ate an oyster.” Jonathan swift
      My point is nothing will ever happen without some daring as your poem suggests and brings this saying to my mind.

    2. Beautiful and inspiring. I love the emotions it invokes.

    3. I see you cycling…..

    4. I think a song like that is sorely needed.
