Emotion, all we sow,
Emotion, all we reap —
Desire never changed a thing.

Values and Metrics

Life's true quality
Lies in that
Of our
Values and metrics.

The one difference
Between variables
And absolutes
Is human arrogance.

Safe for you,
Too cold for me —
Both hostage
To the uncertainty
Between us.

A Life, Reduced

Such tragedy —
A life, reduced
To the rational.

Grateful, not beholden.

No fixed absolute,
A chosen motion —

Is a construct.

A Truth Their Own

The soul, a lens,
The mind, a scope —
To each
A truth their own.

All We Observe

Reality, the perception
Of all we observe —
The intersection
Of truth and belief.

Emptiness Within

Look not without
Seeking to fill
An emptiness
Within.

Optical Desires

Objective necessities,
Wants, not needs —
Mere optical desires,
A hunger
Which cannot be
Unseen.

A Win Today

Live for conquest,
Harvest sorrow —
A win today
Says naught about tomorrow.

The Norm

Beware: the rule
May not be
The norm.

The Wrong People

We only seem
Hard to love
To the wrong people.

#vsspoem prompt for January 30th, 2021: Wrong

Motives Dark

Danger, beware
Unanticipated sweetness.
False praise obscuring motives dark,
Honey masking poisonous venom —
Once you taste the bitter,
You're too late.

#vsspoem prompt for January 29th, 2021: Beware

Spawn Resentment

Don't blame fate for turning
These lovers into strangers —
White lie upon twisted truth
Burned through trust
To spawn resentment.

Problems Cluster

Where optimism fails,
Problems cluster.

#vsspoem prompt for January 27th, 2021: Cluster

Seasons, Dark

To be the sun
In seasons, dark —
Ignorant of summer.
Shadow-wilted faithful heart,
Your roots
Will never take.

#vsspoem prompt for January 25th, 2021: Wilt

Fake Happiness

A smile, unfelt,
So unconvincing —
Can't you tell
How fake
My happiness is?

#vsspoem prompt for July 10th, 2021: Fake

Burned Toast

Thoughts like
Burned toast,
Or life itself —
Dark around the edges.
In search of the unknowable,
Blindly sailing
The middle-distance.
