Our magnificence

Obsessed with our shortcomings,
Blind to our magnificence.

Stretching truth

Pattern seeking minds,
Stretching truth
To fit the known —
Comprehension denied.

Embrace the storm

What stays behind
Will still be gone —
Embrace the storm,
Let it guide you.

Forbidden words

There is
No deeper truth
Than forbidden words —
Even banned,
Their meaning
Cannot be erased.

Dance Electric

Twirling heads,
Shuffling feet —
Willing and enthusiastic.
Slaves to a current,
The captivating
Dance electric

Bother

You raised a question
I thought I'd
Never ask —
Why do I
Even bother.

Cut bare

Like a willow —
Cut bare
I will only
Grow stronger.

Breathe in and drown.
Breathe not and suffocate.
Breathe out and surface.

Levers

Emotion and pain
Are indicators —
Not levers.

Chapters unread

Do not despair —
There are still
Whole chapters
Unread.

Big boy

Full disclosure,
Love it
Or hate it —
Be honest.
I'm a big boy,
I can take it.

Even bones heal

I won't fear
Words that hurt
When even bones heal.

A billion poets

I'm so blessed
That in an ocean, saturated
With the heart's blood
Of a billion poets
You choose to drown
In mine.

#vsspoem prompt for August 20th, 2020: Blood

Prologue

Stuck in a prologue,
Once upon desire —
Afraid to lose
What we don't have
We dream the lives
Of paths not taken.

Best features

My flaws include
Some of my
Best features.

Seek companions

On route to happiness,
Seek companions —
Not passengers.

Fleeting

Do not
Get stuck on loss —
Life, like love and beauty
Is too fleeting.

Heatwave

A necessary evil,
An undesired taste.
Welcomed like a dark cloud
In a heatwave —
Reluctant and temporary.

#vsspoem prompt for August 15th, 2020: Heatwave

Dark momentum

This dark momentum,
The forward rage we ride
Started out a breeze,
A mere soothing
Wind of change —
Back in the long-forgotten
Age of innocence.

Soul-ignition

Impulse-induced
Soul-ignition,
Revel in unbound addiction —
Feed the flame
Until but ash remains.
