Dissonance


I'm fighting with myself
Words just won't come
Yet, I've managed to construct this poem
Metaphorical Assimilation
Just won't take place and….my words
Seem lost in space and…
I'm screaming out for poetical eminence
Yet, standing on the shoulders of lyrical
Dissonance
I want to be great because I am
I write because it is my lifelong dream
Maya Angelou
Once wrote
"In a time of furtive sighs"
Sweet hellos and sad goodbyes
Half-truths told an entire lies
My conscience echoes thunder"
Immunity
Poetically
I have lost my will to speak freely
Entangled in my self-created web of
Lord, when will it be me?
Wanting something this badly
Is causing me to lose touch with reality
Somebody, anybody
Save me

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
