Dilemmas of my Darkness 

Constantly at battle with my mind 

It’s a constant war inside 

Worrying about the darkness taking precedence over the light 

It’s kind of ironic 

Because I find so much comfort in the night 

It’s probably because I blend in so perfectly 

Or possibly because the darkness in me is me 

The moon shine provides just enough ease 

Just long enough for me to feel the night’s breeze 

Is it the fear of embracing parts of my soul 

Things I’d rather not show

The parts that aren’t ideally things I’d like to feel

The things I don’t see myself seeing 

My universe finds it so hard to find the balance between my sun and moon 

I become conflicted by some of the thoughts and feelings my mind blooms 

What if they don’t turn out to be pretty flowers

What if all they are are black roses filled with thorns 

Would they still be considered beautiful 

Or would they be seen as something harmful 

So many unanswered questions that float around 

As I watch them float above my smoky crown 

So many things left unsettled in the air 

I managed to let go of some of the things my heart couldn’t bare 

The blood that flows through my prideful veins 

Fills my heart with all these unnecessary strains 

The most beautiful breakthroughs come after the ugliest breakdowns

Right before it feels like in my feelings I’m about to drown

Each one comes when I’m just about to give in 

Give in to the battles I fight within 

Somehow the light always comes shining through 

Just when I thought the darkness was all I knew 


Daily Word Prompt: Dare to be Daring 

Wear what the fuck you want to wear

Don’t let anyone tell you how to wear your beautifully curled hair 

All that is you 

Is who are are 

You can’t possibly be for everyone 

Once you stay true to yourself 

Half the battle you’ve already won 

Dare to be daring 

Push yourself to the brink 

Challenge the constraints of your comfort zone

On your talents spend time to hone 

Keep daring yourself to not care what they might say

Keep doing what you’re meant to do 

Even it means getting those clueless stares 

Those who matter will appreciate you

Just be patient 

Great things take time 

The manifestations of the mind 

Along with the help of the divine 

Your dreams will slowly unwind 

Sometimes you have to be willing to colour outside the line 

Don’t worry you’ll be just fine. 


Daily Word Prompt: Passionate Encounters of the Heart

The type of person that I am 

Requires a depth most won’t comprehend or possess 

An uncontrollable fire 

One that can be caressed and consoled 

By the arms of my fiery soul 

One that grows when love is shown 

For the things you hold close to you heart 

And for the things you cannot hold

Your passion is a part 

Of why I could love you 

Of why I probably do

Our hearts still bruised and cold 

From the stories we’ve previously told 

Ones that have dimmed our shine 

Over time 

From the times we put our hearts on the line 

We’ve now ascended to this place 

Though we’ve much left to go 

Much left to grow 

Undiscovered passions within ourselves

Between us 

Something so incredibly far from lust 

The beginning of something so raw and pure 

Can only lead to so much more 

Don’t let anything diminish that passion 

Or fire 

Our fire 

Stay true to you 

To the things you love 

To me

Just burn, baby


Daily Word Prompt: Zing

Another sunrise

Brings a renewed energy in me

A new day 

Another chance 

To fulfill unfinished dreams of yesterday

Infinite gratitude 

My mood for life 

Regardless of sadness and strife 

Blessings in disguise 

But I see them clearly 

The signs that He’s always near me 

They comfort me in my times of need 

He gives me strength 

Fills my soul with vigor and vitality 

Richness in spirit and soul 

Set the tone 

For what’s to come 

On the brink of greatness 

You won’t want to miss this 

As I rise like a Phoenix 

And I’m reborn 

Every sunrise 

A constant rebirth of myself

One step closer to who I will be

Who I was yesterday 

Is but a memory 

A benchmark for my growth 

A lesson in its entirety 

I’m thankful for the sunrise each morning 

Because after the nights 

I need that extra  Zing!

The Power of Words 

Unsaid words 

Morph into unpleasant actions 

The ones said 

Receive unfavourable reactions 

Great care should be taken 

With words 

What feelings we awaken 

Sticks and stones break bones 

But words

Words penetrate the soul 

They should be enriching to the mind 

Used only for healing and growth 

If it’s not nice 

Say nothing 

If it inspires

Say it once

Say it twice 

So much power in spoken word 

So much understanding when it’s written 

Strength for the weak 

Vulnerability for the strong 

Coming from a particular someone 

They turn you on 

Providing a blue print for all things 

Somewhat of a labyrinth 

Speak joy into people’s souls 

With words

Speak your way into my heart 

With your actions, stay 

Love me with your words 

And show me 

Show me how you feel 

Words and actions go hand in hand 

Make them add up. 

Daily Word Prompt (one day late): Light from the Night 

Here comes the sun 

To renew my exposed soul from the moon was up 

To regenerate the energy I released into the night 

I awake with a brand new aura 

As we enter into a brand new day 

We are given another chance to renew our light

The chance to discover more about ourselves 

Another opportunity to delve 

Into all that is myself 

My burning soul aches for a touch as warm as the sun’s 

The flames of desire intensifying like a painful symptom 

The day holds opportunity 

But my dreams are manifested under the moon 

The night is who truly knows me 

The sunrise is a reassurance that I survived 

I’ll be ok once I make it through the moonshine 

I would have strengthened my soul 

From the night before Recharge

Daily Word Prompt: Stumped, But Can’t Be Stopped

Knowing where you’re going but not quite sure about how to get there. Knowing not where to start or how. But just knowing. Stuck in some kind of rut, waiting for some phenomena to propel me to a place of certainty. I feel like I’m so behind, because there’s so much to do in this life. 

I pray for direction, focus and perseverance. The keys to the fruition of my day and night dreams. I feel fear, so I know my dreams are big enough. Doubt is also present but it’ll keep me on my toes. It will allow room for improvement as I grow.I also ask for the right auras in my presence. Ones who share similar visions. Ones whose dreams are as vivid. Creative minds alike, destined for greatness. Ones who will help me discover my full potential. Stump

Daily Word Prompt: Ecliptic Heart 

The moon in all its glory

In the midnight sky 

In all its magnificence 

I suddenly feel closer to myself 

As close as it appears 

It’s reflection 

A blanket of illumination 

Over the hills

And the crevices of the valleys 

As is my heart 

Hidden in the dark of my soul 

It becomes completely engulfed 

In the moonlight 

Then suddenly it eclipses 

An air of darkness falls 

Over the earth

Over my heart 

The darkness of my soul 

Swallows it whole 

A glint of light still in the distance 

Obscured but visible 

Then in a moment 

The light will reappear

And on my ecliptic heart 

The moon light will shine once again 

Daily Word Prompt: From the Sidewalk to the Street

A wallflower 

But on a wall of her own 

Seeing the world from the sidewalk 

But never from the street 

As the world passes her by 

All the passers by 

Tempted to take that one step 

Out of her comfort zone 

Unto the pavement 

Thinking about all the possibilities 

The impossibilities 

As well as the consequences 

Being overwhelmed by it all 

She stalls 

So tempted 

But stricken with fear 

Of the uncertainty that awaits

On the other side 

All it takes is that first step 

Off the the sidewalk 

And unto the street.
