The Little Things

It's the little things that shatter —
Tiny ripples moving oceans,
Drowning islands,
Breaking mountains,
Raising hell
When granted
Their momentum.

#vsspoem prompt for July 18th, 2024: Momentum

Factory Of Souls

Conditioned to be
Hesitant, submissive —
Is the world we see
As it's meant to be,
Or was it willed to become
This factory of souls?




#vsspoem prompt for July 17th, 2024: Submissive

The Drama

Living the saga,
Breathing the drama —
Entertain, or get the hell
Off my stage.




#vsspoem prompt for July 16th, 2024: Saga

Goodness Sake

Your life’s not mine,
We're not the same —
For goodness’ sake,
Please let it stay that way.




#vsspoem prompt for July 15th, 2024: Goodness

Naked Contempt

Naked contempt
Beneath a veneer of
Cosmetic respect —
Trust your haters.
They will never change.




#vsspoem prompt for July 14th, 2024: Naked

The Last

A desperate dance —
The last decent stragglers,
Staggering from hopeless cause
To fruitless effort,
Seeking hope in the abandoned
Ghettos of morality
Where none but the self-centric few,
Playing their typecast roles,
Can still afford the rent.

#vsspoem prompt for July 13th, 2024: Straggler

Swallowed Pride

Swallowed pride and
Outright caution —
Bittersweet the crown.




#vsspoem prompt for July 12th, 2024: Outright

Single Perspective

Humanity studied
From a single perspective,
Prepackaged morality
Aimed to distill life
In three dimensions —
The lost devour
What power preaches.
Theology, the insatiable
Quest for a maker,
A disease.




#vsspoem prompt for July 11th, 2024: Disease

Ruins of Happiness

Between
What it takes to survive
And what it takes to succeed
Lie the ruins of happiness.




#vsspoem prompt for July 10th, 2024: Survive

The Windowsill

I watch the demons
On both sides of the windowsill
Holding the mirror of my mind —
On one side burn the fires
Through all that I control,
And the other side,
Though darker,
Is life.

#vsspoem prompt for July 9th, 2024: Demon

The Heart Remembers

Overcoming
Years and distance —
Real is real,
And real persists.
Worlds may break,
Dreams may shatter,
Blood may thin,
But true love
The heart remembers.




#vsspoem prompt for July 8th, 2024: Overcome

Keeping Up Appearances

I'll give it my best
Token effort,
Keeping up appearances —
Too drained
To even want to
Succeed.




#vsspoem prompt for July 7th, 2024: Token

Picture Of Me

I really like this picture of me,
At the edge of heartbreak —
You and me, destined for misery.
A perfect moment, heading for
Our darkest day, and yet,
Despite all that came after,
I still love this picture of me.




#vsspoem prompt for July 6th, 2024: Heartbreak ?

Dismantled

Think on what we have become.
Societies? Led communities —
Hierarchies designed to benefit
The privileged few on top.
Rich tapestries of cultures
Dismantled into one.

#vsspoem prompt for July 5th, 2024: Dismantle

Rocky Shores

Caught behind walls of lies,
Tainted truths so tantalizing —
Riding out the waves that brought us
To the rocky shores of doubt,
Anything not to lose our way,
Or drift any further out.




#vsspoem prompt for July 4th, 2024: Tantalizing

Karmaless Altruist

A karmaless altruist —
Gifting painful truths
I may not always have
Your best interest at heart,
But will always tell you
How it is.




#vsspoem prompt for July 3rd, 2024: Altruist

With You

Solemn in the face of adversity —
No dark-flavored emotions.
I am with you.




#vsspoem prompt for July 1st, 2024: Adversity

Follow The Sun

Running from rain
We follow the sun —
Craving the light
Where water is life.




#vsspoem prompt for June 30th, 2024: Rain

Take The Heat

Give me the cold breeze,
You may take the heat.




#vsspoem prompt for June 29th, 2024: Breeze
