Smoke And Mirrors

Rockstar, diva, PrimaDonna,
Look beyond your spotlight.
Your world,
Smoke and mirrors,
It's a stage —
All props, all fake.
You're not all that,
No more than a product we were
Made to buy.
Industry made you the lie.

#vsspoem prompt for October 4th, 2023: Prop

Life's Not Fair

Life's not fair,
That's just it —
Deserving
Means jack shit.

#vsspoem prompt for October 3rd, 2023: Deserve

Lost Samaritan

You're lost, samaritan,
Unwanted here.
Is it your heart
Or you
That's in the wrong place?

#vsspoem prompt for October 2nd, 2023: Samaritan

My Rock

My anchor, my rock,
Keeping me down,
Holding me back —
I love you.

#vsspoem prompt for October 1st, 2023: Anchor

Suffering Lost

Now all your suffering is lost,
Only the hole is left behind,
An emptiness, too great to fill.
Now that the hands of time have stopped,
There is nothing left but memories
And their ever mounting costs.

#vsspoem prompt for September 30th, 2023: Mount

The Fall

Nature gaped, shaked of the dust.
Unleashed in a blinding fury,
Silenced with a thundering roar —
Life rained down,
Raging, screaming;
Rise, drink up,rejoice,
Summer is no more!
Thus began the fall.

#vsspoem prompt for September 29th, 2023: Rejoice

It Isn't Me

Adoration on a timer,
Antipathy on repeat —
Capricious herd opinion.
What you see,
It isn't me.

#vsspoem prompt for September 28th, 2023: Capricious

Look Both Ways

Look both ways
Before crossing this street —
Art's a conversation,
Not a monologue.

#vsspoem prompt for September 27th, 2023: Monologue

Separate Somedays

Pheromone radio,
Dials spinning like crazy
Whenever we meet —
Mutual we linger,
Reluctant to resume
Our separate somedays.

#vsspoem prompt for September 26th, 2023: Pheromone

Cultivated Norms

Individuality in color-coded graphs,
Freeform exercises
Within cultivated norms —
Choose your part and play along.

#vsspoem prompt for September 25th, 2023: Cultivate

Comes Frailty

With age
Comes frailty
Comes fear —
Less comfortable
The longer we're here.

#vsspoem prompt for September 24th, 2023: Frailty

Clouded Eyes

All but memories has sunken
Far below the waterline —
See it wash away
Through clouded eyes.




#vsspoem prompt for September 23rd, 2023: Clouded

Life Before Pain

Omnipotent sensations
Consuming without
Reservation, hesitation,
All and any
Remnant memories
Of life before pain.

#vsspoem prompt for September 22nd, 2023: Omnipotent

Baseless Expectations

No race,
No test,
No measuring of
Every suitor against the rest.
The problem's not
Our strengths, shortcomings,
Nor our love —
It's our baseless expectations
And our blindness to that fact.




#vsspoem prompt for September 21st, 2023: Suitor

That Single Thing

You are
So many things
I despise —
And yet, you draw me in
With that single thing I like.

#vsspoem prompt for September 20th, 2023: Single

Overrated

You know,
Sometimes words are overrated —
After all, did I not tell you
How much
It meant to me?

#vsspoem prompt for September 19th, 2023: Overrated

Without

Rocks without the sheen,
Gold without the gleam,
Fire without the heat —
Burned up and washed out.
Mirror, tell me that's not me.

#vsspoem prompt for September 18th, 2023: Sheen

Throwaway Morals

Throwaway morals,
Rooted in I —
Kindness, a quality
Unaffordable.

#vsspoem prompt for September 17th, 2023: Throwaway

I Brought Popcorn

Go on, hit the gas
And drive that train
Straight off the tracks —
I but hold back
The self-destructive ones I love,
And I brought popcorn.

#vsspoem prompt for September 16th, 2023: Train

Holes In Me

I'd hold on,
But there's holes in me,
And through them
Leaks the world.




#vsspoem prompt for September 15th, 2023: World
