Tangled in webs of my own making,
Stagnant I sit, in my despair.
My ego out of control,
The death march led by fear.
My judgement clouded by my perceived might,
My pride changed everything in sight.
The echoes my former failures,
Surrounded by a fog so thick.
I thought I was invincible,
But I was just blind.
My life a casualty of
My unchecked vanity and my fragile and shallow mind.
Left in the wake, a victim of woe,
It was too late before I even knew,
My ego had taken control of me,
My healing only a distant dream come true.
Tangled in webs of my own making,
As I sit in a room of many faces
Thoughts run through my mind
As they stare at me in judgement
The curtains of my guilt wrap around me in disgrace
Lies I have told, truths I have hid
The walls are crumbling, my secrets revealed
The accusations fly, as I seem to have no defense
The curtains of my guilt, tangle me in its grasp
Can I ever be forgiven, for the many deeds I have done?
Or be doomed to eternal damnation for my many sins?
Is there a way to turn back time, and away run
From these painful curtains of my guilt, weighing me down
As I try to face my inner demons, and look to the skies
The curtains of my guilt bind me, like a prisoner on trial
They show me no mercy, and refuse to let me go
Curses hang in the air, as I cry foul and woe
Maybe one day I will find my way to redemption
And throw the curtains of my guilt to the ground
My heart free of fear, and restored from the fires of hell
On that day my peace shall be found.
In the tapestry of life, where threads of time do weave,
I find myself amidst a sea of reasons to believe.
A myriad of moments, each one a small part,
Of the grand design, with its own beating heart.
There are reasons in the sunrise, painting the sky anew,
Reasons in the laughter, that through the tears breaks through.
Reasons in the whispers, that speak of love so true,
In the gentle touch, that says more than words can do.
Reasons in the music, that stirs the soul’s own song,
In the silent communion, where heart speaks to heart.
Reasons in the stories, that history does impart,
In the strength of the present, and the hope of the future’s start.
I find reasons in the faces, of those I hold so dear,
In the shared experiences, that bind us all together.
Reasons in the challenges, that test our will and fear,
For it’s in the overcoming, that we find our inner gear.
There are reasons in the stars, that twinkle above,
In the mysteries of life, that we strive to love.
Reasons in the questions, that lead us to discover,
In the quiet of the night, when the world is fast asleep, I uncover.
So many reasons, to rise and face the day,
To embrace the journey, with all its twists and fray.
In the mosaic of existence, where every piece does fit,
I find my place, with so many reasons to live, to fight, to sit.
For in the fabric of being, where every reason sews,
I am the weaver of my own life’s show.
In the pattern of my choices, with each thread I choose,
I am the artist of my life, with so many reasons to pursue.artist, challenges, choose, existence, fabric, faces, fear, future, grand design, heart, history, laughter, life, love, mosaic, music, mysteries, poem, poems, Poetry, present, questions, reasons, shared experiences, silent communion, stars, Stories, sunrise, Tapestry, threads of time, touch, weave, Whispers, will
When all hope is lost, and you’ve faced all your fears
The shine in your eyes still be seen through your tears
All those battles you fought, and all that you lost
Your courage will still show in you, no matter the cost
Though you feel so alone, and your heart runs so low
Friends will still come to your rescue, you should already know
They’ll carry your torch, until you can stand
And guide you out, from the dark of the sand
Your courage will win, as sure as the sky
To remind you, even during the darkest goodbye
That this too shall pass, and soon all will be
Though it may seem hard now, patience will set you free
My nerves are sitting in my gut,
In a web of constricting knots.
The worry and fear won’t dissipate,
Anxiety is building more and more each day.
My stomach churns and ties me up,
The pressure is relentless, never enough.
I try to sleep, but I can’t rest,
Thoughts racing in my chest.
I’m here and I’m at peace,
I can still find joy, even in misery.
I take comfort in the beauty around me,
It helps my simmering nerves to be at ease.
I don’t let the worry and fear wrap around me
I focus on the things that bring me joy and glee.
And I keep driving on, even when I’m lost,
Because I still have the strength inside me to carry on.
My nerves still sit in my gut,
But I know I will be alright.
The worry and fear will soon be gone,
And I will rise above what has been done.
Behind the door she cautiously skulks,
A soft and gentle knock,
Unsure of where this danger lurks,
The terror is not stopped.
From the shadows she nervously peers,
Always cautious, always scared,
In the dark she’s mostly safe here,
From alarming pain and danger spared.
When the darkness starts to close in
She flees in terror in the night,
Unsure of where she’ll wind up then
But thankful for her flight.
Hidden from sight amongst the trees,
She finds a rare moment of stillness,
Silence, peace and safety receives,
Safely protected from any illis.
The doctor’s words echo in my ears,
A label, a diagnosis that brings me fears.
I’m not the worst, I’m not the best,
But who am I, and what’s the quest?
I’m a mystery, an unresolved conundrum,
But what’s my diagnosis? It’s a stigma.
A load on my heart, a hardship to endure,
As I try to figure out just what’s pure.
Am I just a puzzle, a mystery, a game?
I wonder if I’ll ever be the same.
What will I do if this never ceases?
I’ve navigated sorrow’s tempestuous sea,
Seeking answers for the morrow, free,
Through hell’s fiery depths I’ve trod,
My deepest desires to unclod.
But the time has come to set my heart ablaze,
To leave the shadows of the past’s haze.
In the light’s embrace, I must now confide,
Though my soul with darkness is entwined.
I am the knight of the darkness, bred on fear,
Your worst nightmare, yet you hold me dear.
A demon of forgiveness, I grow strong,
From your weakness, my power prolongs.
With me, you are hopeless, yet you yearn,
For a connection, a bond to burn.
But I am the one you will wish you never knew,
Your perfect facade, marred by hues.
I am the master of cards, the heart’s thief,
Capable of tearing apart with a brief,
Leaving you defenseless, bereft of guard,
In a world where shadows forever ward.
I am the lies beneath truth’s guise,
The agony that never subsides.
You wonder which version of me you’ll meet,
As you seek to transform the demon’s heat.
But only my dark side you know,
The truth I’m unafraid to show.
Now you’re aware of the demons within,
Their chains unlatched, their freedom to begin.
I know you’ve tried, I know you’ve wept,
I don’t wish to see your pride adept.
Please flee, find a safe haven to hide,
Don’t stand by my side, the world’s wide.
My soul is dark, and I fear this ride,
To find my kind side, I must confide.
I’m sorry, but you must leave me behind.agony, angel, Convert, dark side, darkness, defenseless, Demon, demons inside, fear, Forgiveness, heart thief, hide, hopeless, kind side, Knight of the darkness, leave behind, lies, master of cards, nightmare, poem, poems, ride, safe place, tear apart, terrified, truth, uncouth, version, weakness, world wide
When all the world was bright with spring,
And love’s young dream was mine,
I thought no ill could ever bring
A cloud across the shine.
But, lo! the storm came sudden o’er,
The sky grew dark and drear;
And love, that seemed so bright before,
Was changed to bitter fear.
And now I know that love is blind,
And hope is all a lie;
And he who trusts in womankind
Must surely rue the day.
For love is like a summer dream,
That fades away too soon;
And he who hopes to win the gleam
Must pay the bitter boon.
So let me learn from bitterest woe
The lesson love has taught,
And never trust to woman’s vow,
Or hope to win her heart.
Love is like a rose,
With its sweet and delicate petals.
It can be fragile and easily bruised,
But it can also be strong and resilient.
Joy is like a sunflower,
Always turning towards the sun.
It is a positive and uplifting emotion,
That can brighten even the darkest day.
Sadness is like a violet,
Hidden in the shadows.
It is a quiet and gentle emotion,
That can be difficult to express.
Anger is like a dandelion,
With its sharp and prickly seeds.
It can be a destructive emotion,
If it is not controlled.
Fear is like a daisy,
With its white petals and yellow center.
It is a natural emotion,
That can help us to stay safe.
Hope is like a lotus flower,
Growing in the mud.
It is a powerful emotion,
That can help us to overcome adversity.
Peace is like a garden,
Full of different flowers.
It is a state of harmony,
Where all emotions are welcome.
Feelings and emotions are like flowers.
They are all beautiful and unique,
And they all have their own special meaning.
So let’s celebrate our feelings and emotions,
And let them bloom in all their beauty.
Life is like a cease-fire,
An uneasy truce between
The warring factions of our soul.
We try to forget the past,
To bury the pain and the hate,
But it’s always there, lurking in the shadows.
We try to move on, to build a new life,
But the old wounds are never really healed.
We live in fear of the next battle,
Of the next time the guns will start to fire.
But for now, we have a cease-fire.
We can try to be happy, to live in peace.
But we know that it’s only temporary,
That the war could start again at any moment.
So we live each day to the fullest,
We make the most of every moment,
Because we never know when it will all end.
Sleep, my child, and dream of dreams,
Of faraway lands and seas.
Of unicorns and rainbows,
Of castles in the trees.
Sleep, my child, and know no fear,
For I am here beside you.
I will protect you from harm,
And keep you safe and sound.
Sleep, my child, and dream of love,
Of all the good things in life.
Of laughter and joy and peace,
Of a world without strife.
Sleep, my child, and rest your head,
For tomorrow is a new day.
And I will be here to greet you,
With a smile and a hug and a song.
Freedom is the wind in my hair,
The sun on my face,
The sound of the waves crashing on the shore.
Freedom is the right to choose my own path,
To live my life the way I want to,
To be who I am, without fear of judgment.
Freedom is the ability to speak my mind,
To express myself without censorship,
To be heard and understood.
Freedom is the power to make my own decisions,
To take risks and fail,
To learn and grow.
Freedom is the most precious gift of all,
And I will never take it for granted.
I will fight for freedom,
For myself and for others,
Until it is a reality for everyone.
I will not rest until all people are free,
To live their lives in peace and harmony.
Freedom is not free,
It is a right that must be fought for,
But it is a fight that is worth fighting.
So let us all stand together,
And fight for freedom,
For ourselves and for the world.all, all people, be, censorship, choose, crashing, Decisions, everyone, express, face, fail, fear, fight, for, fought, free, freedom, gift, grow, hair, harmony, Heard, I am, judgment, Learn, life, live, lives, make, mind, myself, not free, others, ourselves, Path, peace, poems, Poetry, power, Precious, reality, rest, right, Risks, Self, shore, speak, stand together, sun, understood, until, want, waves, Way, who, wind, without, world, worth fighting
Concealment breeds shame,
Denial leads to isolation,
Your authenticity deserves claim,
Embrace your unique creation.
Societal norms may bind,
But freedom comes with being kind,
To yourself and those around,
Acceptance found when you’re sound.
Don’t hide behind false guise,
Reveal your soul’s true skies,
Be proud of who you are,
Free from fear and despair.
Express your true colors,
Live boldly, unaffected by others,
Find solace in your own story,
And thrive in your genuinity.

Trust broken, emotions drowned in rain
He promised love, but only brought pain
His touch barely a medicine to heal
His intentions unclear, filled me with fear
He smelled me like a new animal
Reacting to his abnormality, I pushed away
But he silenced me with a bruised, chapped kiss
His hands roamed, corpulent body pressed against mine
Claws like birds of prey, he pounced
Taking my bust with violent force
As if I was the last piece of bread on earth
He parted my legs and entered me
Cold blood ran through my veins
Mourning with élan, I was unable to protest
As he explored me with his tongue and lips
Playing me like a toy, ignoring my pain
But I refuse to let this define me
I am more than the sum of my parts
I will not let his actions consume me
For I am a survivor, with a beating heart
I will find my own strength to bear this alone
For I am cultured, civilized, and strong
And though life can be tragically beautiful
I will rise above it all, and carry on.
Lost in the dark, I wander alone,
With no guide to lead me home,
My heart beats fast, my mind’s a mess,
I fear the worst, I must confess.
The shadows dance and play their game,
As I struggle to find my way again,
My eyes strain hard to see some light,
But all around is endless night.
The darkness creeps, the shadows loom,
A fear so deep, like impending doom.
No face to see, no eyes to meet,
Just icy grip and pounding beat.
Paralyzed with dread, can’t move a limb,
Heart pounds so hard, it’s deafening.
The faceless fear, the unknown fright,
Grips you tight, all through the night.
Jealousy consumes me
As I watch you walk away
So effortlessly, without a care
Leaving me behind, in despair I envy your strength
To distance yourself with ease
To let go, and move on
While I’m left with heartache that won’t cease You soar like a bird in flight
Leaving sorrow and pain out of sight
Leaving me with my jealousy
And the agony of your memory How I wish I could be like you
Free from the pain and the blue
But instead, I am stuck here
Trying to let go, but consumed by fear So here I am, lost in emotion
As you leave with a shattered notion
Wishing I could fly away
Like you do, every single day.
Death’s door, dark and daunting
Dreadful dreams, daunting desires
Dancing demons, daunting dangers
Drowning deep, dreadful darkness
Eerie echoes, endless emptiness
Endless expanse, eerie emptiness
Eternal end, endless emptiness
Enveloping emptiness, eternal end
Way past the point of fearing the darkness,
I embrace it with open arms, no less.
For in its depths, I find my solace,
A place where I can truly harness.
The shadows that once made me quiver,
Now guide me to a place that’s richer.
Where secrets lie and dreams come alive,
And fears are nothing but a mere jive.
In this realm, I am the master,
Of all that’s dark and full of wonder.
For I have conquered what once enslaved me,
And now, in darkness, I am truly free.
Tremors in the night, freezing my dreams,
I’m lost in a world of icy extremes.
My mind is numb, my body is cold,
The fear inside me is growing bold.
A chilling wind blows through my hair,
As I wander through this frozen nightmare.
The ground beneath me starts to shake,
And in the distance, I see an icy lake.
My heart races as the tremors increase,
I know that I must find release.
From this frozen fear that grips my soul,
And makes me feel so far from whole.

Blood spilt on the sacred land,
By savage men with vicious hand,
Forced conversions and brutal rape,
Women’s agony, the valley’s gape.
Difficult choices they had to make,
To lose their faith or their own life’s sake,
Living in fear, in their own land,
Injustice dealt with a cruel hand.
Lives destroyed, innocence lost,
Painful memories that never exhaust,
Kerala weeps, for its daughters’ plight,
In dismal darkness, fought their might.
Like caged butterflies, we long to be free,
To spread our wings, and soar with glee.
But the world around us can hold us down,
Leaving us trapped, in a life without sound.
The heart yearns for flight, for a chance to be,
Everything we were meant to be.
To dance with the wind, and touch the sky,
To feel alive, with every breath and sigh.
But fear can hold us back, like chains so tight,
Keeping us in darkness, away from the light.
So let us break free, from our cocooned state,
And embrace the world, with wings that elate.
If someone else comes along, will I lose my chance,
To find true love and sweet romance?
Is love so fickle, that it can be swayed,
By the whims of fate, and the games it has played?
The heart can be fragile, and easily broken,
Leaving us lost, and without any token.
But even in pain, there’s a chance to heal,
And find a love, that’s truly real.
So let us not fear, what the future may hold,
For love is a journey, that’s meant to unfold.
And even if someone else comes along,
True love will endure, and remain ever strong.
Doubly as dangerous, but brave, To face our fears, to ride the wave, To take a chance, to seize the day, To find our strength, to pave the way.
For fear can hold us back, it’s true, But courage, it can see us through, To new horizons, to brighter days, To find our path, to change our ways.
The road may be long, the journey tough, But with courage, we have enough, To face the danger, to be unafraid, To find our courage, to make the grade.
Scraping along defences,
The enemy’s army advances,
With swords clashing and shields banging,
Our warriors stand their ground, unflinching.
The battle rages on and on,
As the sun sets and the moon rises,
Blood spills on the battlefield,
And the air is filled with war cries.
Our soldiers fight with all their might,
Defending their land and their kin,
Their courage and bravery shining bright,
As they face the foe, chin to chin.
But as the night wears on,
And exhaustion starts to take its toll,
We pray for victory to come,
And for our enemies to fold.
Finally, the dawn breaks,
And the enemy retreats in defeat,
Our warriors emerge victorious,
Their triumph a sight to behold.
The terribles astound me,
Their presence, oh so grandly,
Filling me with fear and dread,
As I lay alone in bed.
Their whispers, eerie and cold,
Make my blood run icy and old,
Their shadows dance upon my wall,
As I try to ignore their call.
But no matter how hard I try,
The terribles never say goodbye,
Their haunting presence always near,
Filling me with endless fear.
We have learnt enough to turn the page,
The future awaits like an open stage.
New adventures and stories to be told,
As we leave behind what’s old and cold.
I find myself excited and scared,
Wondering what’s ahead and what’s spared.
But with every step, I gain new ground,
And the fear begins to lose its sound.
The past is gone, the present is here,
The future is bright, there’s nothing to fear.
We’ve grown stronger and wiser too,
Ready to face whatever comes anew.
In the dark somewhere, I’ve lost my way,
And fear grips me, with no light of day,
I wander alone, with no end in sight,
Hoping for a glimmer, to guide me right.
My heart pounds fast, and my breath is short,
As I search for a way, out of this port,
But every turn, leads me astray,
And despair sets in, with every dark ray.
Yet still I press on, with hope in my heart,
That soon I’ll find, a way to depart,
From this endless night, that’s swallowed me whole,
And find the light, and regain control.
And though the darkness may seem so vast,
I know that hope will come at last,
And guide me out, to brighter days,
Where light will shine, and fears will fade away.
The monster under my bed is made of milk and flowers,
Its petals soft, its scent devours,
It whispers lullabies in my ear,
And chases away all my fear.
Its eyes are pools of honey,
Its voice as soft as a bunny,
It tucks me in with gentle care,
And watches over me with a loving stare.
The monster under my bed is not scary,
It’s a sweet friend, always merry.
I’m getting my life together, one step at a time,
Leaving the past behind, and embracing the climb.
The journey is long, but the destination is clear,
To a place of peace, love, and no fear.
I’m taking control, of my thoughts and my goals,
Breaking free from the chains, that once took their tolls.
I’m rebuilding myself, with each passing day,
Finding strength in the struggles, along the way.
I’m getting my life together, and it feels so right,
Taking charge of my future, and shining so bright.
Drowning in Sadness
I’m sinking in a sea of tears,
Engulfed by waves of pain.
I try to swim, but all my fears
Drag me down once again.
I struggle to keep my head above,
But the weight is just too much.
The world around me fades to love,
And all I feel is the crush.
I’m drowning in this ocean blue,
With no sign of the shore.
I pray for strength to make it through,
Just one breath, nothing more.
Knees wobble and hands prostrate,
I stand before my deepest fears.
My heart races, my breath abates,
As I confront my inner tears.
The unknown looms before me,
A path I’ve yet to take.
Courage failing, I can’t flee,
Heartbreak, failure, and heartache.
But in this moment, I choose to stand,
No longer will fear rule my plight.
With every breath, I take command,
And step forward into the light.
Afraid to describe just what I feel,
My thoughts and emotions seem surreal.
I try to articulate with every breath,
But the words just don’t come out, it’s death.
A constant battle within my head,
As I struggle to express what I dread.
The fear of being misunderstood,
Keeps me silent, as I wish I could.
Afraid to describe just what I feel,
Is like being trapped in a nightmare surreal.
But I know I must break free from this bind,
And let my true emotions unwind.
I Get Hurt, I Might Cry
I get hurt, I might cry,
It’s a part of life, that I can’t deny,
I wear my heart, upon my sleeve,
And sometimes, it’s hard to believe.
That the ones I trust, and hold so dear,
Can hurt me so, and make me fear,
That I’ll never heal, from the pain they cause,
And I’ll be left, with endless flaws.
But I know, that I’m not alone,
That others feel, the pain I’ve known,
And together, we can find a way,
To heal the wounds, and seize the day.
For every tear, that falls like rain,
There’s a light, that shines again,
A hope that springs, from deep within,
A chance to heal, and to begin.
So I’ll keep moving forward, step by step,
And I’ll keep trying, to find my rep,
I’ll wear my heart, upon my sleeve,
And I’ll keep going, always to believe.
That I can rise, from the hurt I feel,
And I can stand, with strength and zeal,
And I can love, with all my might,
And I can keep going, into the night.
Monstrosity and abomination,
Words that bring fear and trepidation.
They speak of things, that are twisted and wrong,
And leave us with a feeling, that’s hard to be strong.
But maybe, just maybe, there’s more to the tale,
And beauty can be found, in the most unlikely scale.
For even in darkness, there can be light,
And hope can be found, in the depths of the night.
The psyche fears what it cannot see,
What lurks in the depths of the mystery,
The unknown, the dark, and the unfamiliar,
They bring a sense of dread that is peculiar.
The fear of failure that holds us back,
The fear of the unknown, that puts us off track,
The fear of the future, that fills us with dread,
The fear of the past, that won’t let us shed.
The fear of rejection, that cuts like a knife,
The fear of loss, that takes away our life,
The fear of change, that uproots our stability,
The fear of pain, that shakes our tranquility.
The psyche fears what it cannot control,
What it cannot comprehend, what takes a toll,
The demons that lurk in the shadows,
That haunt our thoughts and cause sorrows.
But fear can also be a motivator,
A force that helps us grow and become greater,
For when we face our fears head-on,
We find the strength to carry on.
The psyche fears, but it can also heal,
It can overcome and break the seal,
It can find the courage to take the leap,
And conquer the fears that cause us to weep.
In the darkness, shadows creep
A chilling presence, you cannot sleep
Their eyes aglow, a haunting stare
You feel their presence everywhere
Whispers echo through the halls
The sound of footsteps, someone calls
Lock your doors and turn out the light
Shadows lurking in the dead of night
Let go of worry, let go of doubt,
Embrace the courage, let fear out.
Release the shackles that hold you down,
And rise above, wear your fearless crown.
Break the chains, break the mold,
Leave behind the stories you’ve been told.
Explore the unknown, venture into the deep,
And find the strength, you always keep.
Dare to dream, dare to fly,
Spread your wings, reach for the sky.
Take that leap, with all your might,
And conquer the darkness, with your light.
Screams pierce the silence of the night,
Visions of horror, a ghastly sight,
Bloodcurdling fear grips the heart,
Terror reigns, tearing apart,
Nightmares haunt, sleepless nights,
Bloodcurdling visions, chilling sights.
