CREATIVE WRITING VERSE 

The Space Between Living and Existing

To live, is to find meaning beyond existence freedom, is to overcome these waves of resistance.   I seek space, a vacuum to build my own identity, but each day I have to face the reality that misery loves company and mine receives too much dividends, profit in pain, depression and a life in constant recession.   I need space to dance with the devil death whispers in half deaf ears counting down the years to when the music stops and there are no heart beats no songs nor poems…

Music from the heart

What would you do, if given the choice between constant beautiful music in your ears or the melodic sound of your heart beat? How do you know you’re alive? Is it the rhythm of your heart, that sound you’ve heard since you came on to this earth? or do you feel alive when your bones won’t keep still, your mind is lost in the poetry of the lyrics and your body is a slave to the rhythm of the music ringing in your ears? What do you want to dance…

Whispers from my Father

His figure is etched onto my retina, haunting my dreams as I close my eyes in the darkest corners with my fears he rests in peace the jailer to my demons, the warden of my mental prison the lighthouse that guides me to shore.   He whispers like sand devils to a lost desert wanderer a thousand words painting memories on canvas, tears falling down my cheeks as if to quench my thirst from the heat of this Hades I now reside. He has been gone so long I feel…

The Silent Voice.

Escape. That’s all I could think about. Escape The voice kept saying. And for once, I felt weak enough to listen. You’ll be doing them a favor anyway It always feels like a burden being true to yourself. Those around selfish for pieces of you to remind them of a connection to something. Lineage. Escape You think about youΒ best friend what will it do to your her? Escape No. It will ruin her. Escape Escape Escape this misery of a life. But It ain’t so bad. It does get lonely…

Promise Me by @judyannetM

Heal. I just wanted you to heal. Be better. Forget. Heal.   I picked up the phone. Knew I should not have But it was Sunday morning The sun was out, The tree outside my window dancing in the wind. And Sundays like this have a way of getting into my head So I gathered myself on the couch The one by the window And called you.   You received my call with a scream So shrill so unexpected I jumped dropped the phone with a quick fuck sat down,…

Two Steps Forward, One Step Back

Do you know how it feels to give yourself completely to someone or something? To take that leap of faith hoping that there might just be some light at the end of the tunnel. Do you know how it feels to be there for someone through their lowest moments? To be stuck in the trenches of this emotional roller coaster, wipe the tears from their eyes and make the best of the little in you to have them feel just a little better. Do you know how it feels to…
