Common Threat

Bloodied knives in open backs.
Allies under common threat
Fatally mistook for friends —
Alliances returned to rivalry,
Before the smoke has cleared
Upon their sunset.




#vsspoem prompt for March 23rd, 2024: Rivalry

Dry Spell

Drowning at the end
Of a dry spell —
Blessed with rain
I have forgotten
How to swim.




#vsspoem prompt for March 22nd, 2024: Spell

Act Along

You don't own me,
But get to act like you do.
Possession’s nine-tenth of the law.
You believe in your rights,
And I'll act along —
Working like a man possessed
To survive.



#vsspoem prompt for March 21st, 2024: Act

Fragile Things

Blinded we swing
Time's scythe and truth's hammer
Through trust and other fragile things —
Desperately holding on
To all the ends we've severed.




#vsspoem prompt for March 20th, 2024: Swing

Not Enough

Joyful melancholy.
Decades since you left me,
Messages, but only if you're happy —
Warming yourself
On the still glowing ember
That once was not enough.

#vsspoem prompt for March 19th, 2024: Decade

Secondary Motivators

Secondary motivators,
Hands of fate
Forcing our actions —
Of all their
Manipulative ways,
The most tragic
Is compassion.




#vsspoem prompt for March 18th, 2024: Secondary

Friendzoned Entourage

Friendzoned entourage —
Predictably dependable,
Desperation palpable.
I'm here for you, babe.




#vsspoem prompt for March 17th, 2024: Friendzone

Three Bottle Carpet Rides

Caught in the undertow,
The ballad of
Three bottle carpet rides
And miserable landings —
Happy ending happy hours
To forget the day to day.




#vsspoem prompt for March 16th, 2024: Undertow

Deliberate Omissions

Scripted justification
With deliberate omissions
On endless repetition —
Too smart for my own bullshit,
But will I ever learn?




#vsspoem prompt for March 15th, 2024: Deliberate

Pull The Pen

The coward’s way —
Pull the pen.
Thoughts like live grenades,
Volatile emotions
Trapped in woven cages
Of defused words.




#vsspoem prompt for March 14th, 2024: Volatile

Heart Junctures

Paths, branching out,
Hard rights and heart junctures —
Full throttle,
Never back to
The mess I've left behind.




#vsspoem prompt for March 13th, 2024: Juncture

The Paradox Of Taking

Not yours,
The right,
The prize,
The time,
Broken winnings,
Broken trust.
Greed a teacher
Showing us that
Worth lies not in having —
Such is
The paradox of taking.




#vsspoem prompt for March 12th, 2024: Paradox

The Basis

At the basis of
Both failure and success
Believing is repeating —
Say that again.

#vsspoem prompt for March 11th, 2024: Basis

Reset The I

Solitude in happy doses,
Planned vacations from the grind
Of all that includes others,
To reset the I.




#vsspoem prompt for March 10th, 2024: Dose

Amiable Hatred

Kindred souls inside
Clustered bubbles of tainted light,
Sharing an amiable hatred,
Watching the world distort.




#vsspoem prompt for March 9th, 2024: Amiable

If You're Happy

If you're happy
And you know it,
Teach me how.




#vsspoem prompt for March 8th, 2024: Happy

Everyone Takes

It's hard not to love,
But harder not to hate
When life seldom gives,
And everyone takes.




#vsspoem prompt for March 7th, 2024: Seldom

Give It Time

A spark of sin
Like Winter's heart
Undergoing global warming —
It's not glowing yet,
But give it time.




#vsspoem prompt for March 6th, 2024: Undergo

Yellow Central Line

Happiness impervious,
Abortive bids to shine —
All aboard the mimic-gimmick
Yellow central line.




#vsspoem prompt for March 5th, 2024: Impervious

Artificial Light

Raised on values,
Right and proper —
Moths compelled
To artificial light,
Opposite the true horizon.




#vsspoem prompt for March 4th, 2024: Compel
