Can't Keep It Up

Can’t Keep It Up
By: James Dubeau

Balls high in the air
Bouncing one, two, three
Added four, five, six
Catch and release
Hands moving quick
Can’t keep it up

Irons deep in the fire
Flames licking high
From the white hot coals
Needing to be pulled
Hands sear from heat
It is to painful

Plates spinning fast
High atop the poles
Slowing down, wobbling
Gravity taking hold
Hands spinning fast and soft
Can’t keep going

Body aches and screams
Hands cramp and curl
Mind pounds and thuds
Time to cleanse
Mind, body, and soul
Determination will pull through

  2. Thanks for the compliments on my site, really appreciate it, and your writing really plays with a persons imagination. Keep it up and i will be checking back. Thanks again.

  3. Steve, nice! A good description of many parts of life and living. Thanks

  4. I am not going to lie, that's a nice poem. I thought it was just going to be about juggling, but then it got all trippy. I like it!
