Bound To Bliss
____
Our fateful moment rose to a fever pitch,
the perfect temperature, smoldering,
in the extant elegance of chaos
that encapsulates eagerly the transmutation,
where elements either disintegrate,
or melt mellifluously into something greater,
something substantial, like accursed souls,
bound by bliss, slaves to substance,
entrenching armies of passion
deep within the catacombs of Hell,
perennially at war, fighting furiously,
for the only real thing they know
to be true.

The Road Of Tomorrow | #Poetry #Poems #Prose #WritingCommunity

The Road Of Tomorrow

The road
of tomorrow
cannot be created
with the shattered bricks
of yesterday.

Note: ‘Shattered bricks’ is a metaphor for mistakes being (erroneously) used as a foundational component for the future in whatever you are seeking to create by yourself, or with others. This was written with considerations that often times we wish to do the best for ourselves in the moment, which resonates into tomorrow, except we continually keep repeating the same mistakes that holds us back. I know I make this mistake quite often. Bottom line, I just need to be more mindful of the steps that I take in order to do the best for myself and others.

Prepping Yourself For Next Year

These are just general considerations that if you are going to wait until the “new year” to start pursuing some goals, to make sure to be as prepared as possible, since many people that wait until such time to make large changes, also become the same people that end up falling of the wagon of focus not too long after. Irrespective of that, the part about “free styling” meant writing without one specific idea in mind, and off the type of your head, rather than working on a specific blog, idea, or book for instance. Lastly, I do believe that not waiting for tomorrow, and seeking to make the best of yourself today, in the now, is the most important thing you can do for yourself because it is a proactive approach, and you seeking to create positive resonant change in the moment, rather than waiting for change (the new year i.e.) to come to you, as is most often the case.

Beryl Eyes | #Poetry #Poems #Prose #WritingCommunity

Beryl Eyes
___________
Once upon a perfect moment
I saw heaven’s gemstone skies
and quickly I came to find
my own dreaded disguise;
wholly dead inside
until I felt your endless eyes
breathing back lucid life
into my heart once crushed and capsized
left to rot and die;
to my sudden surprise
their holy healing power
made a dead phoenix rise;
thus shocked and shaken,
I never realized
how beatific beryl crystals
could be paradise.

Best Strangers | #Poetry #Poem #Prose #WritingCommunity

Best Strangers

Sometimes,
friends, make the best strangers.

Sometimes,
strangers, make the best friends.

Noctis Blackburn

Note:

This poem (if you could call it that) is not a sleight on my friends, for they are all each incredible, and I truly mean that. Life being life at times, sometimes, a friend often can’t be there for someone else because they’re at work, or have something important to do, and that’s okay. I wanted to add this to the post, because I did not elaborate at length on Instagram, where I originally posted this, given how you only have a certain amount of space to write, and it’s much faster for me to write this on a laptop.

Even so, this is what’s amazing about the human experience. You don’t have to know someone in any official capacity to impact their life. People that we will never meet will impact our lives in countless ways, often in downright incredible ways, ways that we sometimes can’t even imagine. I elaborated on this in my latest book Amor Vincit Omnia – Love Conquers All.

Most often, this impact others impart on you is indirect; other times, this impact is very direct, like you synchronistically crashing into someone like an idiot, which was what happened to me when I ran into someone when I was about to walk out of somewhere because I wasn’t being mindful.

Then hours later, you’ve made a new friend, even though you were on your way out of that establishment. The whole point is that, life being life, even though obstacles will arise on your path, it doesn’t mean everything you face will be an obstacle. On the flip side of obstacles are the more significant moments in life, those that impact you heavily, and sometimes for the rest of the time. In the rarest types, perhaps even lifetimes. That’s just my take on it, and I truly believe that. What’s yours?
