What are you afraid of?

In Poetry on June 28, 2013 at 8:36 am

fear is an illusion.

pardon my confusion,


this pollution in my mind

that chokes my words,

strikes a chord,

throws my heart into the express lane,


all that pulses through my body is pain…

why does fear feel so real?

Status Quo

My pulse beats against the crowd

Here in a maddening shroud

My life resists societal labels

Belief in the delusional fables

Past the specifics, even broader, all encompassing

Escaping the chains, growing stronger, feel the hearts beating

We are all humans in the same rat race

And so we will break free at our own pace

Broken Heart Chalk 2

I tried and tried


Always ended up teary-eyed


My heart, it ached


While my world quaked


My happiness, my joy


All this over a boy?


2 years of my life


Those years wartorn with strife


Lost in emotion


He doesn’t deserve my devotion


I tried and tried


I finally said goodbye

My bliss

Sealed with a kiss

Yet in the midst

My past slowly whisked

Away went my list

My list, I no longer missed

My life kissed with renewed bliss

In a life that is not my own


Coming in waves like the ocean


The world as I know it collapsed


Forced to adapt


Left embossed


A new person is born

To see the trees stand tall above me Image

To feel the wind flow through my hair

To hear nature speak ever so softly as if I was the only one meant to listen

To taste the dry wind on my tongue

To smell the air

For a moment to be aliveImage

To be here and only here

My mind wiped blank and filled with these senses

These words attempting to capture the stillness around me

To simply be.

(I went outside today; the sky was gray as if it was about to rain and the trees were swaying. It was a beautiful sight. It made me feel calm for once in the midst of school and finals. I was inspired to write and try to describe the moment. I’m not sure my words do it justice so I took some crummy camera phone pictures too. I like writing like this. I don’t do it often, so I’m not sure if it’s good or not but I figure I might as well put it out there).

Change in Perspective

Implosions within perceived realities

Imposing new ideas in the mind


Pulse gains a different beat

Possibilities expand

(random idea that came to me in the middle of the night. weird how that happens. i feel like new ideas are like branches on a tree that stretch up toward the sky, while old ideas fall off like leaves in autumn. that’s probably corny, but oh well. )

I feel like a shell of a person. A seemingly functioning human being, yet on the inside there is nothing. I am empty. My head swells with expectations from others, but where are my own values? Somewhere along the way, I lost them while taking the path most traveled. My heart beats for something more than monotony. My dreams stray away from the norm. I am stuck in a routinary existence and it seems as if I have lost all hope of escaping. I think of what I truly want, what I desire and all that results is an overwhelming feeling of confusion.

(As I sit here writing I feel so nervous that people will actually read this and see how I feel, how I really feel. It’s terrifying).
