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.

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.

#vsspoem prompt for April 5th, 2021: Alone

Between These Lines

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

#vsspoem prompt for April 4th, 2021: Unaware

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.

#vsspoem prompt for July 11th, 2021: Relive

Happiness in Death

There is
No happiness
In death, either.

#vsspoem prompt for March 31st, 2021: Death

Mock Indignation

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

#vsspoem prompt for March 30th, 2021: Tiresome

Scrape the Barrel

Drain the tank,
Scrape the barrel,
Lick the plate clean —
Squeeze the day
For every last
Drop of life.

#vsspoem prompt for March 29th, 2021: Squeeze

Recycled Variations

Teach children
How the world works —
Not who to be.
Raise individuals,
Not recycled variations,
Images of preselected
Uniformity.

#vsspoem prompt for March 28th, 2021: Child

Endless Drizzle

Enduring endless drizzle,
Chilling to the core —
The fear
To step outside our thoughts,
And find warmth.

#vsspoem prompt for March 27th, 2021: Drizzle

The Quiet Mind

Inspiration finds
The quiet mind.

#vsspoem prompt for March 26th, 2021: Quiet

Caution Line

Hunger blinds —
Trampling the caution line
Between instinct and desire.

#vsspoem prompt for March 25th, 2021: Instinct

Ashen Sky

Dip into your soul,
Illuminate the ashen sky
With specks of hope —
Brighten your horizons.

#vsspoem prompt for March 24th, 2021: Bright

Mostly Full

Stop agonizing over
Glasses half empty,
While the barrel's still
Mostly full.

#vsspoem prompt for March 23rd, 2021: Full

Streets Change

Streets change —
Walk on,
Or change along.

#vsspoem prompt for March 22nd, 2021: Streets

Such Irony

Such irony —
This need to
Convince ourselves
That we are are not
Always right.

#vsspoem prompt for March 21st, 2021: Irony
