Unexplainable Lightness

Unexplainable

A mind-altering lightness

Leaving one afloat

Consuming feeling

Which awakens the senses

Love, the only truth

Quite irrational

When caught in its endless web

Willing surrender

The Screen

Working outdoors. Beautiful young woman in funky hat working on laptop and smiling while sitting outdoors

This device has been a staple in my life for years, but

it has now become an addiction I’m beginning to fear.

It starts with checking my email in the morning, then

before long I’m streaming and chatting and blogging.

I’m called by my friends and family and peers, however,

all their calls are nulled by the screen, and I’ve disappeared

 I’m transfixed by its beckoning light and imaged worlds, and

have lost interest in the reality around.

It offers entertainment, virtual experiences and information, but

lacks the intimacy of human interaction.

An appealing contraption of attractive power has

locked its subjects in an inescapable tower.

Connected to every country from a comfortable seat, but

lacking the experience. What a cheat!

I sit here behind a screen to write this poem, isn’t this

the most ironic statement you have ever known?

In Shades of Brown

Chocolate skin melting the hearts of men

Mocha mistress struts with a seductive grin

Sipping coffee every morning, but at night enjoys her gin

Hazel eyes peering into a luring den

 

Copper clasps twinkling in the early light

Brunette beauty leaves in expert stealth

Mahogany doors close, shutting in useless wealth

While cunning caramel queen wanders in plain sight

 

Miniature Writing Challenge #36

Breaking the Silence

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Break the Silence.”

When was the last time you really wanted (or needed) to say something, but kept quiet? Write a post about what you should’ve said.

Silent as the grave

Silent as the dead

Silent out of fear

Silent out of dread

Words slay the darkness

Words show the light

Words set you free

Only if you have the might

Break the silence

Scream the words

Write them down

Share them and let them be heard

Because whether you are true

Or whether you are not

Your silence condemns you

Because your words can mean a lot
