Day 182

Topic: Five more minutes
Topic given by thrillshot220

Rested his head on the pillow
His eyes wandered through
the emptiness that filled his room
Empty spaces
That used to be visions and dreams
Were now replaced by a few particles of dust, playing softly with the industrial white and medicinal grey that had faded in the same pace as him.

Flashbacks of relentless pursuit
Always trying to find his way home
A place he could rest
Feel fulfilled
Nurture his mind
Make up for all the wrongs he’s done
But it never came

Always on the run
Looking for the next dream
Never new how to live in peace with what he had
Constantly moving around with chains
Connected to his brain
So he could never reach out
Without hurting

Now he is left here
In this industrial room
Pillow
Blanket
White and grey
Dying to the rhythm of a heart monitor
Fading
Longer pauses

All he wants now
Is another five minutes
To reach his dream

Topic:A mother’s neglectr
Topic: Nily.somtimes.more.never.less

She put her own needs
at all time
with no doubts
in front of her little angel
she made sure to tell her she was a mistake
she did not make her welcome
over the years
her angels skin was so thick
nothing could penetrate her heart
so she made the same mistakes herself
and the circle of perception
was left in the hands of fate

Topic: empty hearts
Topic given by she_who_writes

She accused him of carrying an empty heart
She could prove it, she claimed
Baldly
It was the way he never said the words
that she wanted to hear
How could she trust a man who never made her certain
How could he stand there every day
And feel what she could not assume
He was cold
He was not cherishing what they were
How they were
And why

She looked at him for a reply
That never came
For days she waited
Looking at him from a distance
He did all the things his usual way
Made them breakfast
Sent her the morning text to make sure she was safe
Then later on a small message
I might be late, but I left some dinner on a plate
Just in case
Sorry you have to eat by yourself
When he comes home late, he asks about her day
Before she goes on hours straight
About the ladies at her place
And everything they said
He listens, and smiles politely, in and out
Before it’s time to go to bed
Where he has picked the spot, closest to the door
Just in case
Something happens
And he has to make her safe

But never once did he say
During their day
The words she wanted to her from him
And for that he had an empty heart

What a shame…

Topic: silence
Topic given by tenealkotze

My biggest fear in life is silence
It reminds me of an empty bucket
That used to be filled with water
Until one day it was just left there
Thirsty for more
But no voice could no longer speak from the well.
Silence reminds me of darkness
A darkness that used to be illuminated by the stars
But as the mind got more and more polluted, the stars could no longer speak their light
Silence reminds me of a rotting tree
Because it is dying
And I will too die with silence
When it strikes

Topic: Catharsis
Topic given by Julunar1

Protagonist pleasure
Vision of a centre
Sorrounding the main character.
Yourself.
On a path to release shoulders
To gain
A revelation
The world is your obstacle.
Life itself, is only a fragment,
But still your main antagonist.
Breath by breath
You battle
Gaining knowledge about death
Realizing, if life is your main focus
Your last breath
Will be the second you reach cleansed.
Death
Death
Death
Don’t let that be your retrospect
Reach out
Every day, for ways
To obtain catharsis

Day 177
21.08.2014
Topic: Changing seasons, changing mindset
Topic given by Robertjvenegas27

The journey started in spring
With light footsteps
Making it impossible to recognize the traces from last year
My heart seemed impossible to open
And I had left the key in Winters lair
I had to spend the entire season to trace my path.
The secrets were hidden at the back of my sole
The heavy footsteps out of winterland
Left marks of truth down on paper
I could do nothing but to replicate it.
The light had swallowed to much of the beast.

When summer came, it was even worse
I felt transparent
The small traces I had to grasp to
Was lifted of the surface
Much like myself
Felt like walking in a circle of continuous nothingness
My paper got vain
Brushing dust of its shoulders
Like old habits
Creating excellent words
But no context
Cause summer never held none in the first place

Taking the first steps back into the darkness, the fall, the cold, the fresh.
The imagery is the first to return
Not vivid at first
But it’s growing
I leave traces
I see the ripples in what I do
I concentrate my fear
I grasp for fresh air
And leave my pen to write its despair
I fall for the temptation to sacrifice myself.

By winter time
My footsteps are heavy again
I drag myself through the words
Every word I write makes an impact on my heartbeat, so I tend to not my head to them. In hope they will make more sense
I step into the winter lair
Knowing what I have been through

It is done

Topic: Women and the universe
Topic given by Nataliejoe

Dear Moon Goddess
Emperor of Venus
The force of antidote to my ill being
You posess powers beyond reason
And when I try to reason with your power, I am caught doubting my existence.
Unlike your brother, Helios, the light
You are able to get away with murder
You are able to exist in nothingness
You are strong enough to bare with silence
You are able to feed from the darkness
And exist in it
One center
One specter
I kneel for what you posess
And admire the powers you adress
You are my moon
My woman
My lady
