((12) Beasts Of Truth

Rating: 5.0
Tic, tac, and we move
to that place of lesser resistance,
where inertia rests,
and there is no danger.
Places with our names written on them.
We think they are the things we love,
our lullabies.

But dreams chase us,
they wear costumes,
they call us “ liar ”, “coward”.

An awe-inspiring poem. Astounding might be another term. You see through the surface, and plunge into the depths, there to ascend. - Will

Reality is tough Our hearts are soft To follow the angel or succumb to devil To live the dreams Or to bury liveliness The choice is ours to be or not to be....

A poem of great complexity, and profundity. Your poem casts down, and uplifts, the reader. Facing bleak facts, the poet transcends these to art. - Will

Your poems have a certain lightness despite the heaviness of the subject matter and it doesn't take you long to set up for a thoughtful ending.
