Negativity oozes discomfort Leeching on like suction cups Gnawing like jagged teeth A miasma surrounds this energy Shatter it. Break free. --- An escape plan I must Portal to positivity Cosmic dust emblazons on the ocean Sparking your wanderlust.
Break the Walls
Face your fears Flutter & flicker Do you hear, shuddering sinners? Ignorant sighted blind - Claim your destiny. Please Please Confront the walls Break the walls! The rubble of your layers Peeled everywhere See the truth. Soar.
Experience paints the path to deviation In blotches Globs Vibrant canvas A watercolour Soft, muted blues Blending to create Our bodies infused Harmonious landscape Still wet Slippery in nature Bleeding in spots No longer strangers. Two paint brushes Two people become One With every stroke The deed is done.
Jar of the World
Overhead Perspective. A blue top to screw the jar of Earth closed - Contain the chaos. The writer’s mind is equally translucent in its navy melancholy. Somber in its singing songs Stanzas written by the pen of a sequestered soul. The reflected bottom of a pool sparkles in a sapphire blaze - Firing on all syllables - the clinical patterns of the flames At its hottest point? The Blue Contained.
Love Is A Risk
Love is a risk - an on-coming fist You can dip, dodge & duck But you're bound to get hit. It can bring you to your knees It can sweep you off your feet But there's always a chance It'll turn sour from sweet. There's also a chance It'll last forever That the person you're with will Want to stay together. Forever.
A Tale of Twisted Metal
Two flights Different stopovers. You chose the first The second, forgotten You fly. You land. The second plane does not. Carnage. Death. What do you with your life, now entangled in this twisted metal? The twist of fate.
