In love with words. insta handle @truevibes_4
I intended not to lay awake till morn,Yet did reading a book inked by an author long gone,Oh, how glad I am for losing my sleep,Turning pages filled with grief,Thank you, you unapologetic writers of the past,Your words will remain a gift to mankind till it lasts.
A Few Brave Souls
A capricious mystery, I strive to solve;In happiness and sadness, I tend to evolve;Trying to get rich before the end of the rope,So inside my detached heart, I treasure hope.Tired of the Fall and Spring I yearn,Although a withered tree, I stand firm;Lost in the woods somewhere is my broken faith,And it’s whereabouts, I no longer care.Once a believer in love, now a skeptic I am,But I do hope love is more than a scam;And I shall trust only a few brave souls,Who strive to keep their might unsold.
Nothing made sense;The Seed felt scared,Buried in darkness, in vain.But eventually She was touched by the Mother’s rivers,Whoosh! The Father’s shine chased her fears,And there She grew pretty and wild,Into a forest harbouring Death and Life!
Shrine of Lies
Nothing changed in Man,Neither the fleeting love nor the lasting lust;And away He went destroying Earth,To satiate His meek hunger and thirst.Crossed every scrupulous line,Drawn consciously by Him long ago;Resulting in a tousled grand history,Where in the red rivers flowed.Earth’s cries for help or vengeance;Man had silenced the helpers with a bribe,And then He rebuilt Her world;But not before He wrecked Her tribes.Damned be the Devil and God,For taking Man’s bribe of flawed holy shrines,And when Mankind’s court summoned them,They took the degraded Man’s side.
We cannot love without disliking a small or a huge part of the consequences that would follow; just like how we love the calm Spring and groan about the hot Summer that ensues. Love is a package. We have to take the whole deal or none of it. There’s no bargain in love.
Hold on, you tired soul;After the dark night is gone,A bright day would dawn!Hold on, you kind heart;After the pain inside dies,A hero would rise!
I think of the time gone,Some of it I used, the rest I drained;And I ponder with a hint of fear,Not about the portion drained but utilised;Will it ever take me anywhereApart from the grave,Will it ever bring me anything,Apart from the pain,Will it ever leave me something,Apart from the sins,Will it still hold meaning,In case I do not win.
Take me in your arms,I ain’t gonna lease your heart;I do not wish to walk that lane,No offence Honey, but I like myself sane.Let us lose our clothes, not our hearts,We can kiss hard like we know;You can feel my hands follow your curves,And you can feed my ears your tender moans.Your every quiver, I’ll lend you mine;Your wet tongue always in sight,Hunt me like I’m your prey, We’ll make it worth our time!Cross your legs around me as we get high;You can surrender your body or prison mine,Let me know if you’re ready, Girl,To cherish the moment and return for more.
What is right, what is wrong,Every conscience sings a different song,We could choose ours or the flock’s,We should choose the pain of our fall.What is good, What is bad,Every decision leads to a different path,We could choose the turn to take,We should choose until the breaks fail.
How do I believe these mighty mountainsAre merely huge rocks sprinkled with snow,That through their beautiful lifelesnessThey can touch the deepest depths of my life!How do I believe these silent forestsAre merely acres of land sprinkled with seeds,That through their loud silenceThey can soothe the darkest fears in my mind!How do I believe these fleeting watersAre merely chaos of hydrogen and oxygen,That through their illusionary blueThey can wet the barren deserts in my eyes!

DOWN BY THE STREAM
Down by the stream where rushes dance
And bushes knit close to the barn,
I dug out a pocket knife by chance
Buried knee-deep under the ground.
The blade’s rusted, yet weighed heavy,
The feel sent shivers through the spine;
The golden handle still held its beauty,
With dirt strewn like gold of the morning sun. There was no mark save the damaged tip;
The owner must’ve held it as an egg ,
Or engraved his lover's name upon stone.
Heaven knows, had some blood been shed!
The weight must be of the owner’s grief,
Of sweet tears and smiles of his maiden;
Or of the blood of an alleged thief,
Or probably of a crime unpardoned.
Somehow, I survived the night- the dream
Sent me the next day to my mother’s lap;
Father took it, I knew, down the stream
Where nothing dances but rushes weep.©ckfilvan
#happy #wod@writersnetwork Thank you so much for kind repost
Birds are chirping singing a new songWhile you're still moaning for last dawnDusk isn't here for patting your head to sleep But to make you awake to climb up the hill(aim)Who says it would be easy,Even stepping on pebbles can makeYou stumble, crawl and fallOnly thing to remember,While acquiring that arduous cliff Many times you have to crumble petty rocks Under your adamant feet;While walking up the hill when darknessSpreads from your heart to the sky,Don't wait for the sun to come upGive opportunity to tiny fireflies(twinkling hope)So walk, walk and walk,You have only one life To catch all those dreamsYou have seen with closed eyes.©inkandfable670
#knotsStars are meant to shine. If someone dims your light in any way find a new universe.@maiatamarainThankyou for your approval Mr miraquill and Mr WN!More power to you all!!
A Cluster of Stars
Curses spit out in words of rage.Casts love into blackened grief.Shatters sweet dreams like mirrors.Absconds trust away as a thief.My soul needs to find solace.It smothers in this toxic, rancid air. So, nestle me in a cluster of stars.Let me grant wishes from there.No use for this pretentious earth.The tragic dramas that it plays.Stages of actors on revolving sets.Rehearsing their deceitful ways.Create diamonds from my stardust.Set them deep into Saturn's rings.Fly my soul far out past the moon.Untangle the past from these strings.I want to watch the knots unravel.Stretch taut then shoot like stars.Race comets that burst into forever.Take me far from where you are.Ride out the violent speed of life.Shake me free as its red flags unfurl.Cut all the ties that bind me here.Burn every bridge to this world~jae

I know I'm a bit late for this....but just wanted to share it here so!/
With heavy hearts and bitter sweet feelings,Here we stand on the very verge Of one's ending and another's begining!Today it has arrived, the very last day of the yearSo let's pick and gather our shattered pieces For we may step into a new chapter.Let's grip not to any kind of harsh emotions.As hate, insecurities and regrets are demons killing us all from inside.They keep reappearing as nightmares!All the little achievements and beautiful difference we have made,Let's not forget to cherish them and embrace.In our pockets with little bit of attitude,Let's bow down to the universe showing gratitude!Let's continue being young, keeping ourselves away from conclusions.Lets welcome 2022 with love in our hearts and full of devotion!Let's continue to strive for truthAnd make the upcoming year known for its revolution.And not just some hollow revolution!_dheeraj©iinfinity_means_you
#argument #wod Your encouragement is sharpening my pen @writersnetwork ❤️❤️.
Argument for betterment
They say better late than neverand then change to Time and tide wait for none.They say too many cooks spoil the brothyet urges all to join hands for success.They say character is the biggest wealthbut suddenly time is money.They say distance makes hearts grow fonder then why should out of sight is out of mind. Things are said and believed,but I think one should believe what your own heart says.Tempers will rise, words will slice,let them just pass by,faith will tell you which way to turnanswers will come to stay.©antarraal
OH CONTRARY FEBRUARY by lovenotes_from_carolyn February, quite contrary Can't make up its mind It's venturing towards spring Yet won't leave winter behind Sometimes sunshine, sometimes snowFlowers bloom 'midst iceForward, backwards, upside-down This month just won't play nice!Perhaps it could be saidThat February has it allFor in 28 short days we'll seeSummer, winter, spring, and fallTopsy-turvy, short and sweet And soon after it begins It's time to say goodbye to FebAs March comes marching in!©lovenotes_from_carolyn 2/12/2022#february #miraquill #writersnetwork #wod
IMAGINE NATION by lovenotes_from_carolyn Oh my mind is an oasis Born of multicolored hues It's as vast as any desert It's a playground for my museIn here, time has no meaning The moment's always "now"Possibilities are endless And there's no concern of "how"Here, I while away the hours Footloose and fancy freeAs I fashion endless tales Of the visions that I see As a sojourner, I set outTo explore each path I find For in this great frontier I'm the nomad of my mind Sounds and sights inspire meWithin this bright brocade Often triggering nostalgia And eliciting saudadeIt's a wonderland of whimsy With a jolt of joie de vivre It's a multiverse of mirthWhere I ink what I conceive It's flow is unabated Uniqueness is the trendHumor is the highlight And daydreams have no endSo seraphic are the soundbites In this fairy-esque forayWhere magic is afootOn most any given day It's the quintessential queendomWhere I create and manifest It's a habit forming haven It's a neurolingual nestSo, if ever you can't find meI'm likely lost in contemplation Somewhere deep within the depths Of my wild imagination.©lovenotes_from_carolyn 2/8/2022#imagination #miraquill #writersnetwork #wod
IN YONDER WOODS by lovenotes_from_carolyn In yonder woodsThe dawn doth sleep Whilst creatures roam And twilight creeps Lo! The stars are out to shine And Luna's glow is so divine!As heavenward, my vision straysI reminisce on recent days Then inwardly, my joy abounds In prayer, I send my thanks around Tranquil is this sight I seeThus, I regard it gratefully In a world where naught is guaranteed Where war breaks out and nations bleed Where humans strike down one another And desecrate our earthly mother I choose instead, this silent night This peaceful spot, this holy sight And in dark times, I'll call to mind The sacred peace, that here I find. ©lovenotes_from_carolyn 2/03/2022@miraquill and @writersnetwork Heartfelt thanks and appreciation to the teams for your ongoing support and encouragement! #writersnetwork #miraquill
I arrive to kiss my long lost loverThe life, Whom I reunite after several years Several years of separation I remember when we were destined to be togetherI arrive to take away the soul which Embraces peace, leaving the disturbancesof daily life The irony is when the people rest in peace The kins mourn in commotion, They are left in grief, And here am I who frees the soul From every bond to the last strings attachedI help them to abandon all their pleasures and miseryThe flowers you left on the graves of deadRepresents in itself my very own natureThe flowers as they bloom,They are destined to wither too Some wither naturally, Some kisses dead early whenSomeone plucks them The untimely death they say And here I am experiencing the death Of two carefree souls The one 10 years old boy And the otherLively fresh dead flowers ©arkido
