by Nick Anthony

I watch my shadow from noon to dusk,
Ever growing in size and lust,
Making me taller than a redwood tree
And stretching the limit of what I can be.

Until the fading sun falls all the way down
And I am beyond the starry lights of town.
Now lost and one with the black nothingness
I am left to mourn my colossal, black hubris.

I kick a stone as I walk home alone,
Struggling to forget the hope I was shown
And accept that I am an ego confined by flesh:
A spirit trapped, and a man depressed.

Be happy

by carareevablog


It was my ego

That made me cry over you,

Get depressed over you,

And fuss because I wasn’t the reason for your happiness anymore

From An Esoteric Perch

made of sense or senseless
made of worth or worthless
made of energy or listless
made of logic or irrational
made of pleasure or pain
made to scream or in silence
made refined or gross

Home Maintenance

by russtowne

Our lawns need mowing
A cobweb’s growing
A gate is sagging
Repairs are lagging
Shelves are dusty
A latch is rusty
A faucet leaks
Our hall floor creaks
Laundry’s piled on the floor
A broken knob is on a door
Our housekeeping is far from kept
But our home’s well maintained in some respects

Nor the meaning

It isn’t them

It isn’t reality

Yet it exists

It isn’t nature

That I sense

I am the sin.

I don’t want love

I am love.

I don’t write poetry

I am poetry.
