Iconized Timelines

Iconized timelines,
Heroes, villains,
Saints, demons,
Martyrs, sinners —
But, mind you,
Dark or light,
From any shade,
Just the winners.
History as chosen by those
Who pick the victors.

#vsspoem prompt for December 18th, 2023: Timeline

I Forgot

I used to know what it's like
To live in pain,
But for a while, somehow, blissfully,
I forgot.
And now that it's returned,
More than wishing it would stop,
I mostly fear it works the same
With happiness.

#vsspoem prompt for December 17th, 2023: Wish

Praised Today

Twisting truth to match the lie,
Fallen angels, demonized —
Even we, praised today,
Might tomorrow find ourselves
Forsaken.
Hashtag flavour of the day,
And then they came
For me.

#vsspoem prompt for December 16th, 2023: Forsaken

Ricochet

Words of love
Ricochet —
Some dreams
Ain't meant to be,
Some hearts
Cannot be reached.




#vsspoem prompt for December 15th, 2023: Ricochet

Your World Beholden

Paint me thoughts
And sing me hopes
For what you feel
A life should be.
Share with me
You world beholden —
I will listen,
I will hear you,
And never dictate sanity.

#vsspoem prompt for December 14th, 2023: Dictate

Enslave

Fear of death,
Fear of debt.
Damnation here
Or ever after,
It’s trivial —
Enslave the populous,
Control through fear.

#vsspoem prompt for December 13th, 2023: Trivial

Change Of Scenery

A change of scenery,
That's all —
We're still waiting,
Though the dream
Has left the station.

#vsspoem prompt for December 12th, 2023: Scenery

The Biggest Lie

The biggest lie
Ever told
Is not the liar's,
But our own —
We willing fools,
Indulging in
A choice, presumed.

#vsspoem prompt for December 11th, 2023: Indulge

Beyond The Grind

It's hard
To see beyond the grind,
But don't mistake routine
For purpose.

#vsspoem prompt for December 10th, 2023: Grind

Just A Wolf

Emergency
Cried the boy,
Although it was
Just a wolf.

#vsspoem prompt for December 9th, 2023: Emergency

Not Everyone Will Get It

The thing about creative efforts?
Not everyone will get it.
Accept that fact, and carry on
Whenever some ass or other
Loudly proclaims their ignorance,
Trying to pin that on you.

#vsspoem prompt for December 8th, 2023: Proclaim

The Digital Age

The digital age —
Our story may outlive
Its last living memory,
Make it a good one, eh?

#vsspoem prompt for December 7th, 2023: Digital

Ache For More

Why
Anesthetize,
Deemphasize,
Repudiate,
Ignore?
Substitute
Reality unbending
With dreams that ache
For more.

#vsspoem prompt for December 6th, 2023: Deemphasize

Pathetic

Does it get
More pathetic?
I'm jealous of the life
You think I have.

#vsspoem prompt for December 5th, 2023: Pathetic

Post-dusk

Post-dusk
Not all answers
To a cry
Are cordial.

#vsspoem prompt for December 4th, 2023: Cordial

Howling At The Sun

Point to heat, point to rain,
Says one, so say they all.
Placate? No, mate —
Fear of change has
Wolves and sheep alike
Howling at the sun.

#vsspoem prompt for December 3rd, 2023: Placate

Like Lemmings

All for one,
And thus we fall
Like lemmings —
Positively lackadaisical.

#vsspoem prompt for December 2nd, 2023: Lackadaisical

All Time

Good times, bad times —
It's all time, all mine
To waste or lose
Whichever way I choose.

#vsspoem prompt for December 1st, 2023: Whichever

Too Great To Last

I knew it was too great to last.
Disappointed expectations —
Welcome to the failure
Of success.

#vsspoem prompt for November 30th, 2023: Welcome

Substitute

Sometimes all it needs
Is a little creativity —
To mask a lack of pretty
With an air of cool and wisdom —
But I've yet to find a substitute
For love.

#vsspoem prompt November 29th, 2023: Substitute
