Afterthought

Acceptance dismissed Understanding underrated Did I matter? *** I stayed in the surface Gasping for air Wondering if They ever cared *** Fractured realities, Sipped through One thousand journeys taken To collect my scattered self *** Your love gave me hope Of finding the answers That I sought *** Fractured journeys Once more sent me...

Dreaming Again

Quiet defiance appeared in place Of woven Elaborate tales *** Your bravest endeavor Being boldly authentic Consistently transparent Innocently curious *** You shone a light On my blind spots I felt human again After an eternity of solitude *** A new adventure ignited By uncharted experiences And renewed hope Of wonder and joy ©yourdailyescape.blog

Highway to Hell

Unseen, unloved, drown out Walking a fine line Life and death reduced To meaningless tags *** Darkness inviting With a warm embrace Dimming the light Muffling the pain *** The suddenly stale Taste of reality A pit in the stomach Starved of connection *** Serial meaningless exchanges Through roads paved with hate From vehicles crossing...

Pandemic

Humble beginnings Imperceptible tremors Slowly shaping Shifting *** First it captured their sight Then it took over their hands They sat for longer Unable to stand *** Mutated strains adapted Found in small pockets Over time Taking over the mind *** Disconnection from reality Inability to recognize loved ones Overflowing anxiety, panic attacks Low self-esteem,...

Gallant Knight

You showed up at my door step Singing sweet songs about love Making charming appearances, Intentionally departing after dawn *** Confidently distant Consistently inconsistent Mostly unavailable Almost unattainable Displaying your merits Through honorable labors *** Coming and going in cycles Like the moon rising at night Your temper seemed secure Like that of a gallant...

How Would You Know?

Love prepares homemade meals Without you having to ask Love works around your quirks Even making bad days feel alright *** Love feels easy and safe Because someone is stretching Beyond their known universe To accept you the way you are *** Love asks, have you eaten? What’s going on in your life? And listens... Continue Reading →

Going Out of Business

I am proud to announce That despite trying really hard To keep on competing This business is falling apart *** It comes a point in everyone’s journey To stop playing pretend Start valuing your time And decisively put an end *** When all the hard work only yields Lots of broken pieces to repair One...

Not Much Longer

Each minute that we spend apart Feels like an eternity For my smitten heart *** I long for looking Deep into your eyes For feeling your skin Pressed against mine *** Why does time deceit Lovers Making our time together Feel delightful but so brief

Surreal Painting

Bodies floating in the ethosphere Wrists cramped from swiping Entire universes crammed into a single paragraph Relationships sold at a wholesale price *** Filtered imperfections get Lost in perfectly manicured lives Vanity on steroids, invites Saddened powdered noses *** Disjointed connections spreading Like a disease rewiring our senses Replacing gestures for a screen Diluting bonds... Continue Reading →

Nautical Lifestyle

A sea of desire washing up on the shore Coming and going like waves Dreams polluted by discarded feelings Form toxic debris and plastic promises **** Scarcity, cravings, fear, demands Suspended without a heading Temporarily picked up with intent Attach to the living to find some sense **** Forever drifting farther away From the source... Continue Reading →

Rings of Power

The myth spoke Of a realm hidden Between two worlds Invisible to the naked eye *** Where humanity was Granted the ability To change their fate Through rings of power *** The brave souls who Protected the secrets Perished For a while Certainty became Only a legend Life carried on *** Remnants of the sacred... Continue Reading →

Insatiable Void

I wanted to know that you care I wanted the sun to shine everyday I wanted life to come easy I wanted pain to never come visit *** All that I thought I wanted Crushed suddenly into a void Impossible to fill in As I can’t feel any joy *** All I want now is... Continue Reading →

Time Travelers

Time travelers passing through Decisively rushing nowhere Grasping hopelessly for meaning Suspended in existence by belief *** Another face fills that empty space  Hiding from the truth Behind new endeavors The mind is a scary place to be When the heart is not ready to see *** Assumed deficiencies Pouring from within Spill into exasperation... Continue Reading →

Sacred Fire

An unstoppable drive That is old as time Runs through my veins It can’t be explained It’s alive and quickly spreading *** Through the darkness Of demons and failure Life itself whispers, there is more Get up and open a new door *** Reality unfolding before my eyes I’m open to welcome the possibilities As... Continue Reading →

Inside The Castle

As she entered the great hall A grumpy creature was waiting What’s wrong? She inquired The world is unfair it shrieked Shocked and saddened She sang a lulling song *** As she readied to leave the crab behind And begin to wander around An army of flying monkeys Approached the palace A loud roar came... Continue Reading →

Just Because

I love you because you rolled the red carpet And welcomed me with open arms Knowing you weren’t perfect You let me see you inside and out *** I love you because we share An open invitation to stay Strengthening our bond With thoughtful care *** Your company reminds me Of all that is beautiful... Continue Reading →

Walking Among Titans

Excitement, anticipationWorry and fascinationPermeated the moon cyclesLeading to our first encounter My strength would be testedA new uncharted path revealedNo compass allowedNo tools or shields I gazed at the stars for cluesNo map to be foundAn amateur companionIs all that I had You entered this realmWith lightning and thunderSo much power restingIn such tiny wonder...

Out of Control

Think about your weight Think about what you did Think about what you lack Think of what’s important to me *** I thought about it And frankly I find that to be quite small I choose to be free *** You are out of control I know I’m right Because I love you Don’t you... Continue Reading →

Perfect Storm

It was hotter than ever or so I thought Colors came alive And the air smelled sweeter So, I stayed for a while *** You felt like sunshine I could not get enough Was it love? Of what kind? I bathed in your light Away from my shadows *** Until the intensity unlocked the past... Continue Reading →

A Thousand Words

I kept on reaching But you weren’t there So, I learned to justify Your blank stares *** I begged and pleaded But you weren’t willing So my tears Just kept on spilling *** A thousand words I made up, In your absence, To fill in the gap *** It took me years To finally see... Continue Reading →
