Deliberate Omissions

Scripted justification
With deliberate omissions
On endless repetition —
Too smart for my own bullshit,
But will I ever learn?




#vsspoem prompt for March 15th, 2024: Deliberate

Pull The Pen

The coward’s way —
Pull the pen.
Thoughts like live grenades,
Volatile emotions
Trapped in woven cages
Of defused words.




#vsspoem prompt for March 14th, 2024: Volatile

Heart Junctures

Paths, branching out,
Hard rights and heart junctures —
Full throttle,
Never back to
The mess I've left behind.




#vsspoem prompt for March 13th, 2024: Juncture

The Paradox Of Taking

Not yours,
The right,
The prize,
The time,
Broken winnings,
Broken trust.
Greed a teacher
Showing us that
Worth lies not in having —
Such is
The paradox of taking.




#vsspoem prompt for March 12th, 2024: Paradox

The Basis

At the basis of
Both failure and success
Believing is repeating —
Say that again.

#vsspoem prompt for March 11th, 2024: Basis

Reset The I

Solitude in happy doses,
Planned vacations from the grind
Of all that includes others,
To reset the I.




#vsspoem prompt for March 10th, 2024: Dose

Amiable Hatred

Kindred souls inside
Clustered bubbles of tainted light,
Sharing an amiable hatred,
Watching the world distort.




#vsspoem prompt for March 9th, 2024: Amiable

If You're Happy

If you're happy
And you know it,
Teach me how.




#vsspoem prompt for March 8th, 2024: Happy

Everyone Takes

It's hard not to love,
But harder not to hate
When life seldom gives,
And everyone takes.




#vsspoem prompt for March 7th, 2024: Seldom

Give It Time

A spark of sin
Like Winter's heart
Undergoing global warming —
It's not glowing yet,
But give it time.




#vsspoem prompt for March 6th, 2024: Undergo

Yellow Central Line

Happiness impervious,
Abortive bids to shine —
All aboard the mimic-gimmick
Yellow central line.




#vsspoem prompt for March 5th, 2024: Impervious

Artificial Light

Raised on values,
Right and proper —
Moths compelled
To artificial light,
Opposite the true horizon.




#vsspoem prompt for March 4th, 2024: Compel

Dimming Light

Time, forever marching,
Mortal coils unwinding —
Only memories rewinding,
Seeking warmth to mute the cold
Of every dimming light.

#vsspoem prompt for March 3rd, 2024: March

Social Calculus

Social calculus
Never agreed with me.
Negative squared —
Mirrored truths won't carry.




#vsspoem prompt for March 2nd, 2024: Agree

Bonsai Morality

Bonsai morality,
Trimmed to please —
Less is more.
Ideals cost,
And sears are cheap.




#vsspoem prompt for March 1st, 2024: Sear

Unhealthy

Stressful,
Unhealthy beyond reason —
Invigorating nonetheless.




#vsspoem prompt for February 29th, 2024: Invigorating

Gruntled Times

Rainy days
In gruntled times —
Take a breath,
And find your smile.




#vsspoem prompt for February 28th, 2024: Gruntled

In Envy

Worms eyeing butterflies
In envy,
Weaving dirt cocoons of self-delusion —
Willing change by waiting
For a moment never just quite right.
Devoted to the role of victim,
Life passes them by.




#vsspoem prompt for February 27th, 2024: Worm

Trinkets

In a way it's still shiny
Glass beads and trinkets —
What can't be consumed
Is rubbish.




#vsspoem prompt for February 26th, 2024: Rubbish

Dumpster Fire Diving

Excavating the deepest scenes,
Seeking treasure
In the rubble of normality —
Dumpster fire diving
For anything reminiscent
Of me.




#vsspoem prompt for February 25th, 2024: Reminisce
