~Crazy Is As Crazy Does~

Alarmingly insightful
But
Callously
Deceitful
Exacting revenge
For no other reason than
Grim satisfaction
Her dementia
Instigating collaboration
Joining forces against her
Knavish kind
Limiting the
Maleficent
Narcissism, the
Objectifying of
Poets
Quarreling for the sake of
Rancor
She
Threatens
Using
Vapid
Ways to speak
Xenoglossia
Yet comprehending
Zilch about poetry

~Sunset~

Weekly writing challenge May 11

Why?
Why does sunset come so early
Creeping stealthily, but occurring rapidly
Denying the beauty of a life yet to live
All becoming harsh shades of silver and grey
How to beat back the sweeping of night
Fight the snuffing of all light
Courage, hope and faith
That’s all that’s left
For a soul bereft

~Turbulent~

That Sinking Feeling by rosiehardy on Flickr

Hiding from life
Endless strife
Drowning under the waves
No need to be brave
Soul searching
Seeking the light
Suffocating darkness
Heart staining blight
Cleansing…all that remains
To rid me of residual blame
My spirit refuses, still fighting me
Thus remaining as turbulent as the sea

mystery

Woman of mystery
Writes her own history
Chooses what she’s sharing
Circumspect or daring
Changes her masks, one after another
Each designed and made to smother
So she can bury her emotions deep
Under each mask to keep
Anyone from seeing her true face
And each line you could trace
With your finger the pain and grief
Etching her misery
