Nightmare Of A Cold Dead Earth

pexels-photo-31111.jpg
An endless solitude fill dark lonely streets.
No noisy motorcars, And no busy hustling of humans.
Only utter silence all and everywhere.
 
Nothing here is what it used to be.
 
Where skylines made of tall buildings once stood,
highlighting with brilliance and beauty, crumbled
to dead statues in the distance. Grey and silent.
 
Where lavish homes and busy streets once stood,
Lively with people and spirit, ruined to dilapidated
slump. Broken and abandoned.
 
Nothing here is what it used to be.
 
Fore, Earth is a cold, dead place.

Night Beauty

The world is most beautiful between the earliest hours of a morning; one and three am.
When the world is fast asleep, And a thousand stars are your personal think-space.
Where you explore the deepest questions of life, And ponder the ways of the universe.
It is here you find perfect peace.
Free and alone, When the world is silent.

The Miserable Monster

black-and-white-person-woman-girl

I have a confession to make.
As a child, I believed their was a monster hiding in the wardrobe.

I believed in the childhood tales of monsters in the wardrobe, hiding under the bed, or in hallways. Monsters who scared the crap out of me, enough to leave a light on at night. 

With time, these monsters disappeared, And I learned to sleep with the light off.

I learned how they were nothing more than childhood nightmares and child imagination. 

Unfortunately, their is one true monster who does exist.

If it chooses you, it turns your whole world blue. 

You feel as though you’re drowning, but you keep going anyway. 

You feel sad over nothing, even on your Birthday. 

It’s like your life is playing in a black and white film with no sound.

It doesn’t hide in wardrobes, under beds, or hallways. 

It follows like a shadow, waiting for the wrong time to pounce. 

It chooses any person, of any gender, rich or poor, young or old.

This monster is persistent and gets what it wants.

I confess that I am one of many chosen by, and living with this monster.

Doctors call it “Depression”. 

I call it “a miserable Asshole.”

Don’t let a miserable Asshole control your life.

Control what you can, and let go of what you can’t.
