In the eye of the storm

There is silence and calm

As destruction swirls around me

 

Here in the eye

I find tranquillity

An inner peace

The sky shines bright and blue

Above my head

 

I know it’s only a matter of time

Before the storm swallows me whole

Lifts my feet from the green grass

That feels like silk under foot

 

I see the herculean winds

Swirling ever closer

And I smile at its onslaught

I know it will take me

 

There is no escape

No sanctuary from the beast

As it inches ever closer

I really look at what has been uprooted

At what flies within this raging storm

 

Hope

Peace

Love

Kindness

Life

Decisions

Friendship

 

I was expecting

Houses

Cars

Fences

Cows

 

And that’s when it really hits me

Just before the eye truly passes over me

Before I am sucked in

This could be a song

robertweisenburger

Your bones are brittle
driftwood
That pace across the sea-
Sifting over idle wave
That sustains the life of a lost
And worthy soul –
Swallowed
Whole
By the tide who gave him
That twinkle in his eye
And
The gleam of his crooked whites.
Amongst the majesty
Of the sea maidens water,
He offers to her:
 “oh I plead ,
I plead
My muse swallow me
whole”

She grants him such wishes.

My first attempt at a poem

This is a great first try, believe me.

Writing from the Margins

Winter at the beach

The cold, pale sand stretched out around the shore line

Holding one solitary figure,

Walking slowly along its surface,

Hair blowing in the breeze.

 

The heavy grey sky frowned in anger,

Watching the commotion of the icy waves

The full weight of the water

Crashing down upon the shore.

 

The bitter breeze hit like needles

Tugging at exposed skin

Inspiring the need for hats and scarves

And yet wanting the scarf to unravel.

Anxiety

Caged….. that says it all

lostsparrow93

Always caged

Locked up, enraged

Nowhere to turn, nowhere to hide,

No one to confide

in. Nervousness rushing over me

This is not how things are supposed to be

All this emotion built up

Threatening to spill like an overfilled cup

I’m about to explode

Scream, cry, implode

Do anything to feel alive

Open my soul and take a dive

Get nothing in return

What did I do to deserve to earn

this? Nothing? something?

When will the choir sing?

When will I get bliss?

Will you ever miss

me if I were gone?

I don’t know what I’ve done

I don’t know what I’ll do

What is true?

For me? For you?

My mind is a zoo

Unique…… Weird but different in nice odd way

Angst Anarchy

Night skyI awoke to the sounds of the alarm
Blaring, screaming,
Wake up, get up, get your lazy ass up

Immediately, start the day, start it up
Rev it high and then change gears
Smoothly first to second,
The engine bucks and you jerk
Forward

The hot water gasps and sputters
Time to start the race
Put on your runnin shoes

The radio talks, it sings, it mumbles
Buy, buy, buy, sell, sell, sell
Get up, start

Don’t stop until it’s done,
until the sky changes color
until you see the holes cut out of heaven

Keep truckin
Keep dancing to the rugged day
Keep jive-in

Let the day flow, walk, move, dress, choose
Fill your head until it spins
Until it smacks you behind the eyes so hard it stings

Keep it up
Keep chugging
Don’t stop
Don’t drop the ball

Rush
Forge
Create
Destroy
Forget and then suddenly remember

Tread on The Path of Flames By Harpreet Kaur

This is a nice piece

Insight 182

Tread on the path of flames,

Don’t waste a moment or two.

Tread on the path of flames,

It is time to show if your loyalty is true.

Tread on the fire of flames,

Don’t look back;

The past may attack you.

Tread on the path of flames,

See what is destined for you.

Tread on the path of flames,

Don’t waste a moment or two.

Tread on the path of flames,

The world is waiting for you.
