ReflectionnoitcelfeR

*All this time

because I never understood myself

All this stress because I never took the time to reflect

All this confusion because I never understood myself

All this depression because I never made a decision

All this pain because I never reevaluated my life

All this anxiety because I never realized

*Repeat

Poetry Corner – Fall

Fall

Fall is here
Now taunting us
At first bringing hints of hope
Then encompassing us in its brutal embrace
Like icy cold fingers grasping and gripping
Exhilarating and depressing at once
Ominously reminding us winter
is just around the corner
Fall is gone

Poetry Corner – Why?

Why?

Why do I bother
Wasted energy
I could have stayed in bed today

Why do I try
Wasted effort
I could have Netflix and chilled

Why do I believe
Wasted faith
I could have stuck to the routine

Why do I continue
Wasted breath
I could have killed myself

But I'm still here


Why?

Poetry Corner – The Night

The Night

I don’t want this night to end
Floating in oblivion
I want night to last forever
Why must we wake up?

It’s as if the night is there
just to tease us
Only a short reprieve
from torturous day

Dreams blind us from what awaits when we wake

I want this night to stay
and comfort me in its eternal blackness
The sun’s beams like a monster
peeking from behind the closet door

Spend day waiting
for night’s warm embrace
Bringing comfort and protection
from all that exists
Anonymity at last

But don’t let it fool you
Night is day disguised
Unveiling its true identity
come dusk

Falling asleep
into an inviting void
A dimension beyond our four
Together we go interstellar

The night doesn’t care
about your successes
or failures

Good night

Sleep tight

Poetry Corner – Deadline

Deadline
  
I’m not tired
but I’m not awake
 I close my eyes wanting to
shut out everything and focus
 But I fall asleep once again
 behind schedule
Day's gone
  
 When I’m asleep
deadline's drift away
like sand in an ocean breeze
 Pray I don't wake up, to stay in limbo
Awoken again by the greed of day
I feel the instant deadline of
life waiting

Poetry Corner – Time

Time

Time
has no purpose
no start, no end
perpetually repeating itself
at an ever faster rate
so fast it makes clocks spin
knocking atoms along
rushing into the future
forgetting the past
rendering the future
obsolete

Poetry Corner – Walking Plague

Walking Plague


I am a walking plague


I bring death and disease everywhere I go


Where there is life there will eventually be death


I am a walking plague


For which there is no cure


Why hasn’t God created a cure to wipe me off the face of the earth?


I am a walking plague


I live in complete isolation from the world


I should be burnt into nothingness


I will die lonely


I am a walking plague

Poetry Corner – My Shadow

My Shadow

My shadow is perfect

It moves gracefully

No flaws

No sharp edges

No signs of aging

No eyes, no mouth

No expression

It ponders quietly

In its infinite knowing

And looks back at me

Wondering

What beast is staring back at it
