Stars and Snowflakes

Month

April 2020

Polarity

Peace needs conflict
Dark needs light
Inner strength
Cannot be built
Without a fight

Joy earns value
From despair
Polarities
Are formed
By what they share

Naïve

Like a child
Believing
Under the bed
Is where monsters stay

Or a shopper
Believing
If you ignore it
Debt goes away

Why must it be
So easy
To walk the space
Between the two?

Is it stupid
Or naïve
To believe
In you?

Habits

Bad habits
Die
Kicking
And screaming
And fighting
To kill you, too

Priorities

A peaceful mind
Is guilty
When it’s not alright
To be
Content–
Not happy.
Are we ever happy?
Not allowed to look away
With so much pain to see.
But maybe
That’s not healthy.
Maybe health
Should be
Priority.

Smoke and Glass

It’s a relief
This release
The way you
Fade away

Illusions woven
With your words
Shattered
With what you didn’t say

It’s nearly funny
Mostly sad
How easily
We can betray

The raw, worn truth
Within us
For an insincere
Display

House

You desired
A home
This house
Could not be
No scent
Of fresh paint
Could hide history
Or erase the shadows
In each corner
Of each room
Or the memories
They hold
Of smoke and perfume

Charismatic

Steady voice
Steady tongue
Steady pull
Among the young

Steady rhythm
Steady drum
Steady hope for
Change to come

Steady smile
Steady gaze
Steady stream of
Doubts you raise

Steady hands
Steady eyes
Steady pattern
To your lies

IDK

I don’t know what to talk about
Don’t know what to say
It’s hard writing one of these
Every single day
Especially
Since fear has carved a hole in me
With plans to stay

Freedom

All of my fantasies
Require me
To be small.
That’s controversial.
I don’t care.
I won’t be my downfall.

I’m sick of circles
Looping on
How I’m supposed to feel.
This time alone
Has helped me to discover
What is real
And what’s been planted in me
From every angle
Every side.
Everyone has lied.

I want to be how I imagine.
That isn’t wrong.
I want to see and feel the freedom
I was meant for all along.
