Cycling

Wind flowing through your hair,As you ride a downward slope,Your surroundings turn into a blur,One half exhilaration, the other half calmness Pumping the peddles or pushing gently,A choice between speed or serenity,The effort is energizing,Liberating you from a hectic life Navigating a known trail,A blissful time with yourself,Each curve known from memory,Just enjoying each moment… Continue reading Cycling

The Right Words

The right words,With that precise intensity,and the subtle emotion,That perfect set,Which flows smoothly,and materializes effortlessly,That powerful idea,which widens vision,and shakes away preconceptions,That what we yearn for,and seldom deliver,That which is most beautiful,constructed the most succinctly,capable of drawing awe,yet calming like a gentle breeze,which finally brings the message home,Forever elusive,The right words.

Laugh

Laugh, when you're story's a tragedy,Cause they make the best comedies.Laugh, when you're flaws draw attention,It's not ugly if it's funny. Laugh at you're failures,So that you may fail again.Laugh at you're foolishness,It makes you humble. Laugh, when you're on a high,That's what a high is for.Laugh, when you're clumsy,Those are genuinely funny. Laugh, when… Continue reading Laugh

Shades of Happiness

Loud guffaws of thrill,Watery eyes from unpolished honesty,Laughter that stretches the cheeks, and hurts the stomach,Moments that usher bouts of happiness Shy grins of comfort,Expressive eyes that glitter with warmth,A face that glows with love, a heart that flutters,The constant dull sensation of positivity An expressionless face,Soft eyes filled with contentment,A mind that looks back… Continue reading Shades of Happiness

Solace

A tranquil silence,Growing deeper as time passes by,Loneliness that brings peace,Darkness that creates comfort. The surroundings encourage self reflection,The sparse lights sparkle beautifully,Twinkles that are noticeable,Details cannot be overshadowed. A time to rest or a time to reflect,Surroundings that refresh or surroundings that lull,A newfound time to step back,If the day has left you ever… Continue reading Solace

Poetry

Peace

The soft aroma of simplicity,On a Saturday afternoon,The light midday meal,With gentle warm tastes. Graceful, meandering music,Soft and soothing notes,To gently caress you into your dreams,To gradually nudge you out of sleep. A cold sensation on the tongue,of unmitigated sweetness,or tasteful bitterness,relishing the slowly melting chocolate. Floating peacefully in the pool,Drifting around contently,Coolness washing over… Continue reading Peace

A Mundane Poem

I wonder what it's like,A mundane poem,With no pearls of wisdom,And no deeper explanation A poem about the falling sun,Into the sea,Without describing the crimson hues,And metaphysical implications A poem about starry skies,Without meandering imagination,Without heartfelt extrapolations,Just some calming imagery A truly simple poem,Not a simplicity that invokes thought,or describes visuals the eye doesn't see,But… Continue reading A Mundane Poem

To Be or Not To Be

To be practical,or to be impractical?To be imaginative,or to be unimaginative? To choose wisely,or to choose instinctively,To bet on experience,or to bet on inspiration In the suicidal leap,A reliable fallback option,In the conventional decision,An adventurous endevour A bit of both,So as to not become,Old and jaded,or fresh and foolish But rather,Wise and instinctive,A sword and… Continue reading To Be or Not To Be

The Pillow

Too thick,And it can sprain your neck,Too thin,but then you can't lie on your side Too hard,As though it's not meant for rest,Too soft,What's the point of a pillow then No pillow,makes you wonder how ancient beings slept,But not any pillow,Cause ordinary pillows have extreme tendencies Your pillow,Has a space specially for your head,It makes… Continue reading The Pillow

What Keeps you Sane

What keeps you sane?When your plans are failing,And dreams are collapsing,When your mistakes are monumental What keeps you sane,Are your attempts, at being better,You're small actions of little consequence,You're intentions despite your shortcomings What keeps you sane?When you have to give up despite your best efforts,When confronted by your irredeemable flaws,When you must move on,… Continue reading What Keeps you Sane
