A silent war

War eats away at the vale of peace

Devouring any hope of healing

The innocent souls swallowed unaware, ignorant to the danger creeping near

Darkness is at our doorstep

Don’t let the devil in, the heat from his breath, unquenching 
What’s worth more than your soul? What’s worth more than your life?

The Lion sits waiting, feed him from your plate, an arm or a leg

Darkness is at our doorstep

It’s invisible, it’s silent, deadly times

A well kept secret

A war rages behind the scenes

Can you see it?

The plot thickens

Yesterday someone died. Today another can die

Shot fired echoes the night 
whose soul was released from it’s cage?
To take the elevator up or down
leaving behind worries and pain, suffering
Leaving behind a life that could have been better
You slept with the dark, it swallowed you whole
A residential fee of your soul
Anyway back? paid in blood, your life sacked
you have made your bed, now lay in it

The Silent Poetic Groove

Set on a Journey, an adventure

Mentally uplifting, a reminder that I am gifted

Re-swallowed by negative system

Not to ignore but to explore

dissecting its center to find its core

 

It’s me, it’s me, it’s me

Spamming internal folklore

I heard from another, equating to many

False Imagery

 

A not so funny comedy

A marathon of uneven sitcoms

My mind a sequence of scenes

A well written psycho script

“Remember your lines” memories encrypted

Translation not equipped, My mood took a dip

My words, take your sip

and be filled.

Featured: The Poem

Seduced me into writing,

Talked me into expressing,

Loved me into revealing.

 

Then caress me with motivation

 Slowly massaging me with inspiration,

Getting me into the mood for a rough night

To make love to the paper just right.

 

There are times when we fight,

I leave you crushed and I find another.

 

We make up and we begin again the cycle of written Love.

Ballad of the Mind


Pre-Order Now!

Travelling my mind seeing the sights looking for a way to reach new heights

It’s a ballad of the mind moving through life I will grab what’s mine

Walking through the dark, searching for a light

Working to be a better self, only wanting growth, In the end it will be refined

It thinks alone, sleepless at times,

It’s on a Journey Gaining knowledge with each experience of each day

My thoughts fight a battle, taking part in Tourney

Which is the winner? Only my feeling heart has a say

Seldom do I dream when I sleep

Often, I dream when I am seeing

Random thoughts greet me with conversations that are deep

For instance, assess this and tell us, what are you feeling?

It wishes for freedom, it wants to rest, too much emotional

Overweight with the world, when it is not even mine to shoulder

It influences how my decisions or made, brings my life to distortion

Each they feel myself living in winter, getting colder

“Morning”, greets the day, no smiles, what did I do? Are we even friends? Acquaintance even?

Stay your distance “I really don’t mean no harm, just being myself, I do want to know you”

Well, no worries, I have always been alone, I see your resistance

One part my mind’s story, more to be written, will I share? That is left up to you, or maybe me the Author

Let us pause here for a while, not the end, my mind went off somewhere

The Story will continue, until the next quarter.\

Unruffled Mind

Thoughts free from projections
Unevenness of surface not apparent
My mind is unruffled, similar to a calm sea

Life is free flowing, without bends, to some degree
Energy uninterrupted, strong flowing torrent
Conjuring uniform motion to some degree

Bringing about calmness, life is free
Of heavy feelings, at ground zero
A level of comfort, life simulator

You ease the pain with laughter
Washing away all the sorrows bringing hope
Erasing your doubt bringing answers

How much mental and physical effort was spent by chance?
To carry out your everyday tasks, to survive these random occurrence
Of our brain detouring from its original functions

Seems like a bad timing in world with no light, but 24/7 unction
Shedding what little light present on a seemingly lost reality
Representing a beacon of hope where there is none

Those living in the shadows has no reflection, shady, back turned to the sun
But not hidden, relaxed in bath of gloom, life filled with dimness
“To create a sense of shallow relief” are you a painter?

(We only want our life to be smooth
Enough to bring a feeling that is soothing
motivating worthy results from hard work
While living in the shadows is not necessarily dark)

About the poem: I used definitions of four words to compose this poem. started out as a personal prompt to get in the writing mood and it turned into this. I will be trying out this method again in the near future. You could give it too and see what great writing you can come up with. Happy Writing!!

Resist

Everyday Life testes my endurance, my determination

Can I withstand these trials, will I be on top? I want to give up

But I must resist! I must keep moving forward without hesitation

Warden myself against these temptations

Urge is strong, “Stop, why bother, Stop, you won’t make it”

Internal conflict, my lungs constrict

I must resist, I must.

 

Sometimes it seems the world neglects peace

Leaving her in isolation, alone in the dark, to be raise by the shadows

No one to love her, no one to feed her, no to tell her stories

Ignoring her plea to be of help but she resist negative, always seeking the positive

She resist the taunting of the darkness, rebellion against the teachings of the shadows

 Little did they know, she was the candle that lit the dark.

 

They tell you who you should be for their liking

Force their ideals on the masses, controlling

Tell us what is wrong or what is right, provoking

Keeping the truth to themselves, reshaping the world

They make rules, we follow, and they themselves break the rules

They give sentences, they judge recklessly, we have fallen victim to their schism

Eating out of the palm of their hands, aren’t you tired, aren’t you frustrated, aren’t you lost

Why not refuse? Why not live? Why not resist?

Rebel? Sleeping souls need an alarm, its pass night time.

 

 

A Sonnet to me

 

Dear me, come, sit and let me write this sonnet to you

I know your silent pain, seen your shadows

In a cruel world, a soft heart, your days are blue

The world unfeeling weights on your caring flow

It is not wrong to care, or wrong to feel

Know the right persons, they will choose, in silence

Solitude is your refuge, time to heal

 

Lost in dreams, life becomes timeless

I know your struggles, can’t tell them apart?

Find someone who will pull you back to earth

Your insight has potential, try creative art

Do not doubt, you were created great from birth

Love brings me peace and overthinking eats my Joy

You are not out to hurt, create, don’t destroy
