The Ultimate

The eyes feel tired
But the mind keeps pushing
For the creation
Of the ultimate verse
And after it is done
The law of diminishing returns applies
And the mind surges
Yet again
For the next
An unending cycle
Where the urge to achieve
The ultimate
Drives the body and mind
With every fresh breath.

  1. nice. i understand this...ever achieving for better...nice 55...

  2. your efforts are obvious here.
    Well done 55...

    keep trying,
    keep smiling.

  3. That seems like a lot of angst over writing something...
    Unless of course one writes for a living!
    Loved your 55 My Friend
    Thanks for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week-End...G

  4. a lovely 55, i go through this every friday when i try to find just the right 55 words.

  5. Sounds like 'the creative process revealed' in 55 words.

    (I recently posted one with that very title, but I don't think it was 55 words)

  6. That's the same feeling that makes me re-play video games. Now if only I could get it focused back on my books.

  7. This sounds so real. Can so relate to it.
