Winter’s darkened clouds
Hover, lost in starless skies,
As leaden, pewter, ebony ravens
Coalesce in a wonder of worlds.
As the nights are long,
Your thoughts are flung
Into dusky abysses of dung.
As the sleepless nights dance
Into your nightmarish dreams and glance
At the blackish sea where they take a stance;
The sleepless nights fizzle
Making insomnia a rare puzzle
For those trying to live life without a muzzle,
Straining to contain life’s wuzzel.
Vote for my poem: ‘Decisions … Decisions’ for mungwin contest.
Love, loved, lover, lovely
Over abundance of being emotionally
Viscerally compassionate that strongly
Evolves as your love grows exponentially.
Be kind to yourself
Motivate your own growth with stealth,
Don’t let vanity be your wealth
But rather empathy becomes your breath.
The month of love and adoration
Is the shortest one of all!
Not all happiness can be packed into its summation,
Short, though it is, it’s effects are a ball!
In its center, couples celebrate their love,
As if, you only praise your unity then!
And every other day falls short of its possessive
Hold on your cheery life filled only with a pen.
The one you use to organize your life,
Strategize your next goal, perfect compassion
That leads to compromise and less strife,
While dissent and enmity to envy’s fashion.
Duty and love are two sides of a coin,
Where duty can choke the life out of veneration
As it stomps out the cheer from your conjoin.
I’m extatic to have been chosen to be a part of ISFP! It’s a great honor that I hope to live up to.
I haven’t been a good blogger lately, but I wasn’t unproductive. I’ve participated in 2 open mic events on eventbrite! If you haven’t tried it, I highly recommend it. It’s empowering as your audience is made up of other poets. I read from my book, Heaven’s Gate, and Lives Matter.
Hi everyone, I just had my open mic session on event bites by Phoenix Books! I used a poem from my book, Perfectly Flawed, the poem, Beloved Flaw.
I haven’t felt this connected in a while. I encourage everyone to try it, even if it’s outside their comfort zone.
