Musings (National Poetry Writing Month 2021 #27)   Leave a comment

The snowflake dances within my mind
Relaxing in the summer sun, my thoughts melt away.

The sound of your laughter echoing
Ringing through all the empty spaces you left behind

I am contained in a pane of class
My self image a reflection of those around me

Time marches on at a steady pace
The destination keeps moving closer and closer

Glances (National Poetry Writing Month 2020 #13)   Leave a comment

In shadows and in-between glances
I see my true self hidden behind an ornate mask

Of expectations and of pressures
Crafted, and then grafted, onto me against my will

A rictus smile hides the blessures
A great pretender which proves itself up to the task

I hold my breath, I wait for chances
To pull back the mask, to let myself finally spill

Envy (5 Landays)   Leave a comment

I’m filled with anger, hate, jealousy
Boiling up from the deepest places inside of me.

Foolishly, I will try to hide it.
In vain, I will try to take that thought and deride it

I’ll try, but it will take me under
And drown me in a roar of cacophonous thunder.

In its wake, it leaves me a shell
Trapped here to suffer, here in my own personal hell.

Filled up with greed, and pride, and envy
All because others have the joy I wanted for me.

Gaming All Day (National Poetry Writing Month 2015 # 25)   Leave a comment

Some say spending all day with a game
Is a colossal waste of time, and is extremely lame.
But when you need to refresh you mind
A better alternative would be very hard to find.

Moments (National poetry Writing Month 2015 #19)   1 comment

I love the moments I spend with you.
My heart fills with sadness when my time with you is through.
I’m filled with anxiety, but then
My world is happy once more when I see you again.
