Social Beacon

A charging cell phone on a nightstand,
A last message left unread —
A social beacon in the night,
A blinking lifeline out of darkness,
A reminder in our solitude
That we are not
Alone.

Change Feelings

Facts
Do not
Change feelings.

Ideals fade
In absence
Of accomplishment.

You Assume

You assume too much —
My promise to deal with it
Never once
Mentioned results.

#vsspoem prompt for April 14th, 2021: Result

All She Received

All she received
Is what I would have
Given you —
And yet,
I am the poorer for it.

Feed the Vibe

Feed the vibe
That frees the mind,
Distort the thoughts
Maintaining
The cycle.

Subtle Signs

Beware the tides
Which anger rides —
Annoyance shows,
Albeit often
In subtle signs.

Save Your Worries

Why fret over
Each minor setback —
Save your worries
For when life
Seems to go smoothly.

Luxury Inhibits

Fellow artists,
Beyond necessity,
May your ends
Never meet —
Luxury inhibits
Creativity.

#vsspoem prompt for April 9th, 2021: Luxury

Thank Me Later

I'd rather
You curse me now
And thank me later
Than the other way around —
Even knowing
I will not be there.

#vsspoem prompt for April 8th, 2021: Curse

Where We Stand

We get to choose
Where we stand
But not which sides
There are.

#vsspoem prompt for April 7th, 2021: Stand

For Battered Or Worse

Involuntary compliance,
Forcefully subdued —
Play the hand you're dealt,
For battered or worse.

#vsspoem prompt for April 6th, 2021: Subdue

Loneliness Goes Deeper

Force company
And you will see
How loneliness
Goes deeper
Than being alone.

Between These Lines

Word blind,
Scroll by —
Blissfully unaware.
I'll never share
It is you
Between these lines.

Yet We try

A heart cannot
Break gently —
And yet,
We try.

Little Did We Know

All of us laughed at her
Ominous foreshadowing.
Little did we know.

#vsspoem prompt for April 2nd, 2021: Ominous

Why Keep

Why keep
What we can't carry,
Collect
What we can't use,
Record
What we won't ever
Relive.

Happiness in Death

No happiness
In death, either.

Mock Indignation

Tiresome mock indignation.
My words —
In stride,
Yet taken.
