Love, please

Last week, a few hours away from where I live, a white supremacist assaulted two teenage girls on a bus. Three men came to their aid. Two were killed by the hate filled (man). The third was severely injured. My heart aches that this is the world we live in, but I am proud that … Continue reading Love, please

Madhouse

Join the circus Perform for peanuts Don’t bother me with reality Dissociation is my comfort zone The place I like to call home Fashionable yet comfortable Life inside a cage Whipped into submission Clean out the cobwebs White-knuckle grip Frenetic disorganized disturbance A magician with a magic wand Monochromatic maniacal music One hit wonder drug … Continue reading Madhouse

Find Me

(A re-post because this feels right today) There is no quiet in the wicked night Where shadows are birthed Writhing through sleep shrouded eyes Rousing her into aphotic collection Impelled toward dark thorn forest Seizing her decrepit parody Limbs whip her pallid face A splatter of red Highlights her gaunt essence Believing hue can conceive … Continue reading Find Me

Dream Machine

Adapt Adjust Master manipulator Captain courageous Bodies hidden in the basement Self-effacement Faking a fairy tale Skipped out on bail Constant craving Lil red raven High school shit Cosplaying commitment What are you asking for anyway? Above the fray Tragic temptation Neanderthal nation Designed for safety Fake and flaky I have no problem making a … Continue reading Dream Machine

Moon Ate the Dark Challenge: 1WiseWoman/Despite Darkness

The amazing Christine of Brave and Reckless put out a submission request with the prompt, “Moon ate the dark” Here is my piece. Thank you Christine! The submissions have been so enjoyable to read… I encourage you to take a look at all that have been shared so far, lots of amazing writing!

Brave & Reckless

Everywhere I look

There are people

Who don’t want to be here

Distracted by daily routines

Lost among the sheep

Devoured by darkness

Complacency kills

So many ways to leave the moment

Rabidly awaiting revered rapture

Golden light is coveted

The secret has already been discovered

And is standing right in front of you

Unable to get out of your own way

To see the light of day

If only the moon ate the dark

Take the weight of the world

Along with self responsibility

The consequences are dire

Lighting the world on fire

Never ending nebulous nightmares

Divining dreams disappear

In burning atmosphere

Illusion of inspirational illumination

Ignite a chain reaction

Blinded by the light

Stars explode

Eclipsing the sun

Sparks fly

Say goodbye

Be careful what you bid for

An empty night sky

An absence of stars to wish upon

Damnation disguised as devotion

Prayers are lost in expired heavens
