[Poetry] Deep Dive Aspects

The waters pass
Along the raging rivers
Spirits fly overhead
Reflected / water’s mirror glass
Like balls of fire, spirits fly
In/ out of sight, they hide.
Clock’s ticking sound rings
Top of the hour
It will devour
Enter through the gate
It’s hunger will sate
Endless hallways await
Footsteps enter your ear
Wondering what will appear
Awaiting death
Staring darkness in the eye
Your very last breath.
Weight measures the water
It’s light as lead
When’d you eat your last bite of bread?
It comes from behind
I’d truly love to remind
A pendulum settled on the waves,
Time no meaning keeps
Yet its ticking stays
Fire stands there
Dark breaths down my neck
A horrible aspect
I’d love to greet
Yet it’ll end with my defeat

I really enjoy this type of writing subject as it allows me to go a little wild with symbolism and such. Basically, it’s describing a dream or trance state. I hope you enjoy it and share if you like.

[Poetry] Scattered Clutter

Clutter/ on the ground
Tossed/ by every wind
I’m spinning/ every which way
I don’t know where to turn.
This mess I’m in
No way out
No turning back
I’m here and stuck…

Why do you jump at me?
What did I do to you
I’m sorry!
If I say it
Will it be better
No space for words
I can’t even say it…

I aim for what’s right
Yet it goes wrong
Can’t you see? I’m trying!
Why not even a glance
I try to tell you true
What’s wrong between me and you
Give me an answer/ a sign
Anything will do…

Spider webs surround us
The dust settles
I want us to say
We made it a very long way
But other thoughts
You seem to have
If this is how we’ll be
Be honest with me
If there’s nothing left
Just give me some rest

This is a longer poem that I just wrote for therapeutic reasons so it’s not so much about being the best written piece, but please let me know what you think and share if you like.

[Poetry] A Captivating Siren

Love is a siren
Before her, men fall to their knees
Come to me/ come to me
She calls/ a dastardly attraction
She promises the world
But leaves not a fraction.
Fool! Why do you fall for her lies
You can see it in her eyes!
She cares not for you
Yet you fall for her song
For that you are wrong
Her song is a viper’s bite
Ready to strike.
The waves of your life
In her hands/ tumultuous
To think you’d survive
Would be quite presumptuous.
You know not her name
Yet she calls you the same
At the end of the day
What can we say?
In this sea called life
A siren ready to captivate
Her hunger will not sate.

This is me revisiting a metaphor poem I wrote back when I was in high school. I tried to change it up a bit while using a couple lines from the poem that I still enjoyed as well. It’s a poem based off Greek Mythology (mentioning the siren). Hope you enjoy it a lot and share if you wish.

[Poetry] Unwanted Guest

Get away
Go away
Don’t come any day!
Little spider
Hanging on the wall
Why don’t you just fall?
I’m tired of seeing you
Don’t come near me again
I’ll knock your home off my walls,
If you never came at all
I’d never have to yell.
Leave me, leave me be
Can’t you tell
You’re not good for me
Free me, free me please
Of yourself, a dastardly disease,
I’d never have to cry
I’d never clamor
Just leave hither
Won’t you please
Just give me peace
And run away
With your babies please.
I’ll give you today
I can’t stand you further
Your presence I cannot weather
Tell me, tell me so
That you’ll leave me, my foe.
IF so, I’ll wish you well
I’ll see you off
Be someone else’s guest
And not be such a pest.

[Poetry] Forgotten Days

A child was I
In those days, sweet
To those days, I’d retreat
Every day, I grew /
And they ended so soon.
Honey would touch my lips
And milk I would sip /
How glorious were those days!
A fire petal would find me /
Show me what to see
But now, water lilies lead me
To a dead sea.
Fill my world with light /
Make it turn alright
This pain, please relieve
So I can believe.

This is the second poem I promised. Hope you enjoy it.
