you want me to seal these lips from the world;
so you can rise from my silence
you call me weak
so you can stand tall on false righteousness.
I will bot be tamed to be the woman you enslave with your pious approval
beauty isn’t something foreign to my repertoire
You just shamed me into painting it ulgy
Poetry is putting a diaphanous veil over something unappealing, speaking regarding it just subdued enough to put into oblivion how abraded and festering and suppurate the wound is.
It’s a language of emphasizing inspiration, subjectivity – of Romanticism and painless augury, full of fanatical sentimentalism and compelling twists of the tongue.
Metaphors are hazardous travesty, using a sort of transfiguration to turn wordless sentiment into imaginable circumstances.
The way the anguish rios through yoyr body and flusters your every bones compelling you to envision misery as it pull you down to great depths and choking breaths.
The truth is, poetry is a deceiver, a fibber, an equivocator. Never fall for its exquisitely crafted stanzas causing slips into the dense fog of nostalgia.
I write to an audience that doesn’t reply (but I always keep receiving reviews which is really overwhelming). I don’t get much shares or reblogs. But I like the idea that people read them regardless.
It’s okay if you don’t post that button, but I hope my writings give impact to someone, whether good or bad, it’s good to know that someone out there was moved by my words.
I just want to make you feel the spectrum of emotions.
“The happiest is the person who suffers the least pain; the most miserable who enjoys the least pleasure.”
-Jean Jacques Rousseau, Emile (1762)
We all suffer something in our lives and sometimes, we becomes miserable to the point of thinking that living this life isn’t worth it anymore.
When we speak of “the good life”, what we mean by that is a life where the ordinary becomes extraordinary, the natural becomes miraculous, and the everyday becomes unique.
The everyday may seem to be made up only of small things, but let us believe in details. Every time we choose to embrace life, we are putting our best and truest face forward.
Have a nice day! 🙂
