Pay-per-spotlight

Buried under feeds
Filled with mediocre
Gold-lined shite —
Creativity cannot thrive
In a pay-per-spotlight world.

Dead Promises

Remnants of
A thousand chances —
Dead promises,
Kept in vain.

Love & Pain

Monuments to
A thousand moments —
Crucibles
Of love and pain.

#vsspoem prompt for April 20th, 2023: Monument

Broken

Mosaics of
A thousand pieces —
Broken
To be remade.

#vsspoem prompt for April 19, 2023: Broken

Capable

Capable in thought nor deed —
My handicaps, internal.

#vsspoem prompt for April 18th, 2023: Capable

Letting Go

Letting go
Is trust and fear —
Gone, but you're still here.

#vsspoem prompt for April 17th, 2023: Trust

We Scar

Scared we vent
And insecure
We scar.

#vsspoem prompt for April 16th, 2023: Vent

Twitch

Failing grip, the physical
Slipping, slipping, gone.
Tell me,
Who is it that falls?
Trembling hands, fingers slick
Left to hold
Not a twitch of sanity —
Not one bit,
No, naught at all.

#vsspoem prompt for April 15th, 2023: Twitch

Have-nots

Envy and jealousy,
Games of have-nots
And should-not-haves —
Unaware the parts they play.

#vsspoem prompt for April 14th, 2023: Jealousy

Brittle

Truth hits hard where faith is weak,
Pulling at the brittle branches
Of the trembling family tree —
Father, should we
Set our children free?

#vsspoem prompt for April 13th, 2023: Brittle

Multitudes

Multitudes with single shadows,
Moving on a single sign —
Written, spoken, or implied.

#vsspoem prompt for April 12th, 2023: Multitude

Fragile Ideologies

More deadly than durable,
These fragile ideologies —
Like little soldiers
Made of mud,
Marching through the rain.

#vsspoem prompt for April 11th, 2023: Durable

Charlatans

Charlatans since dawn of time —
I'll take your tale, and make it mine,
Painting over history
With holy words and blood.

#vsspoem prompt for April 10th, 2023: Charlatan

Update Me

Soothing slumber,
Consciousness rebooting,
Auto-saved for a new day —
Erase my faults,
Update me.

#vsspoem prompt for April 9th, 2023: Reboot

On A Whim

Plan everything
Meticulously,
Then hinge it
On a whim.

#vsspoem prompt for April 8th, 2023: Hinge

Silent Nos

Raised in the land
Of silent nos and maybe laters,
Affirmation is the monster
That hides under the bed.

#vsspoem prompt for April 7th, 2023: Affirm

Worship Me

Absent gods, failed icons,
Teachers, parents, preachers, heroes —
Friend or foe,
I let them go
And worship me.

#vsspoem prompt for April 6th, 2023: Worship

Achievement From Choice

Differentiation,
Excused discrimination —
Not only privilege separates
Achievement from choice.


#vsspoem prompt for April 5th, 2023: Privilege

Hate Upon Hate

Hate upon hate —
Blackening the world
With layer upon layer
Of dark, red paint.

#vsspoem prompt for April 4th, 2023: Blacken

Square Of Sky

Dawn, a place too far away,
So distant from my square of sky —
Oh, moon of mine, reach out your light
And vanish me.

#vsspoem prompt for April 3rd, 2023: Square
