Ocean Breaks

Convictions made of sand —
Like how the shoreline
Breaks the ocean,
It matters where you
Make your stand.

#vsspoem prompt for September 12th, 2023: Shoreline

The Parts We Play

Mental constructs, inclinations,
We are caught, but not in cages,
Prisoners of the parts we play —
Accused, judge, and jury,
Predator and prey.
Inmate, guard, and warden
Any fucking day.

#vsspoem prompt for September 11th, 2023: Simultaneous

Live Like This

Without worry,
What is there to think about?
And without thought
We would not live like this.

#vsspoem prompt for September 10th, 2023: Worry

Losing You

No other —
Imagined, encountered,
Past, present, or future —
Could ever elicit
The feelings I lost,
Losing you.

#vsspoem prompt for September 9th, 2023: Elicit

Golden Frames

Love, affection,
Bought to care for.
Loneliness in golden frames —
Without you my empty life
Would not have been the same.

#vsspoem prompt for September 8th, 2023: Frame

The Long Way

No shortcut's worthwhile —
All I admire
Came the long way.

#vsspoem prompt for September 7th, 2023: Shortcut


The lie collapsed
Half life crisis,
Cracked pink glasses —
Gray, unrelenting,
Floods back in.

#vsspoem prompt for September 6th, 2023: Crisis


A human invention,
Success is a construct,
A feedback-looped
Closed circle jerk —
Gather round,
Pat your neighbor on the back
Until the hive mind
Shares but one intention.

#vsspoem prompt for September 5th, 2023: Feedback

Pattern Seeking

Black and white,
Day and night,
Dark and light —
For good, for bad,
We're hardwired to be
A pattern-seeking species.

#vsspoem prompt for September 4th, 2023: Species


Little signals,
Biting, guiding,
Giving voice to what's inside —
Undervalued, feared, and hated,
Monitoring our precious lives.

#vsspoem prompt for September 3rd, 2023: Monitor

The Good Life

Chasing the premium,
Deluxe and supreme —
Craving the comfort,
The good life
Exclusive to VIPs.

#vsspoem prompt for September 2nd, 2023: Deluxe

Buried Love

From the crypt
Not the heart —
Buried love,
Words spit in pain,
Irreconcilably apart.

#vsspoem prompt for September 1st, 2023: Crypt

Forgotten Song

I recall the melody
But can no longer
Sing along the cheerful,
Long forgotten song
Hummed by the little lost boy
In the far corner of my psyche —
But the happiness, simplicity
Elude me.

#vsspoem prompt for August 31st, 2023: Elude

Learn To Share

Don't worry,
You still have my hate —
I merely stopped favoring.
Do learn to share.

#vsspoem prompt for August 30th, 2023: Favor

Gilded Cages

And the captives
In gilded cages
Filled with all their treasured things,
Dreamt of larger accommodations
Filled with different, more desired,
Equally trivial
Worthless shit.

#vsspoem prompt for August 29th, 2023: Captive


Hey bitch,
Where's your off-switch?
You manipulative
Carpet bomb.

#vsspoem prompt for August 28th, 2023: Manipulate

Masks Upon Masks

Low stoops temptation,
And deep cuts the guilt —
We are masks
Upon masks
Upon scared little souls.
All we know of what's right's
The divide between
All that is felt,
And the bullshit we're told.

#vsspoem promptAugust 27th, 2023: Stoop

Hollow Crown

Follow not
Who strive for glory —
Men nor gods —
For hollow is that crown.

#vsspoem prompt for August 26th, 2023: Strive

Starched and Bleached

Compromised reality,
Conformitized identity,
Blue collars,
Starched and bleached —
Catering insatiable elites.

#vsspoem prompt for August 25th, 2023: Conformity

The Long Walk

Enduring the long walk,
Stuck, but too stubborn to stop —
Horizons unending,
With milestones too heavy
To carry along.

#vsspoem prompt for August 24th, 2023: Milestone
