Cliches Are Still Feelings
The entire poem is one big cliche nowadays, or so I'm told.
Is it still relevant?
Is it thematic plagiarism?
You be the judge.

Cliches Are Still Feelings
T J Rintoull

In the dark of the morning,
Before we all rise,
In the middle of evening,
In dreams you're disguised,
When sunlight is shining,
As well in the rain,
In cloudy dull weather,
And inside, again,
Whenever I'm working,
Or even at home,
In company talking,
And when I'm alone,
A picture I've painted,
So please understand,
Of you I am dreaming
Beaming and glad,
But there is one location,
One moment in time,
When I'm not thinking of you,
And still feel sublime,
In fact I feel better,
Happier and fine,
Than when I am thinking,
Of you all the time,
This moment I speak of,
I promise no lies,
Is anywhere looking,
Deep into your eyes.
