Self-Abusive Robots: Sizzletron

I had a little talk with me-myself-and-I:

The Mirror-mirror exercise, and all such invocations.

Affirmatron, Egoïtron, and Dogmatron of course

the roboticks in psycholitic schizzle.

And then The Holy Trinitron, firmly cast aside

this schmizomatic megolith of self-inflicted curses

to somewhere-somewhere particles no longer associate

dissociation with disassociation.

I don't dwell on the negatives

I don't dwell on the negatives

It's not that I don't

I just don't really see the bad side

in anything that's happy ever after

Disculate

you'd burn my heart into video

it'd keep you spinning

frame-after-frame

 

and now I'm twisted:

the anomaly of perfectionated language

tossed around like frisbees

windshear precision & cookiecutter dough

 

something you'd like to dispute

a history of arguments and a little less innocence

 

but what is innocence...

 

Can you disculate me one more time?

A Special Place For Us

Here's a special place for us, where we can run and hide

A special talk for special folks 

who try to find what rhymes!

 

In this special place there is a lot of room for love

and spacious exploration to be free, to be enough.

 

Well-designed, not too confined 

we find ourselves at home.

To be okay, to be and stay,

and safe securely roam.

If I could

If I could

I would give you this song

And we would be strong

If I could

 

I'd be better than this

just a time of bliss

 

If I could

 

We would dance all day

We would laugh and play

We would come and stay

 

Would you come with me

Would you long with me

Would you wrong with me

Picking up the pieces of this modern Earth

Picking up the pieces of this modern Earth,

maybe it is fine that I am just okay.

Everything is relative and relatives are not :)

but you would be my lover and we'd always stay this way!

 

Quatrains are my thing but one is not enough, alas!

And I won't pray the strain away nomore.

You could be my stalker, and I'm sure you're nonetheless

or relatively relative at war...

It's becoming incredibly hard

The Bridge Out Of Africa

Here is some love

for those who can't fly like birds

for those who can't swim like a fish

for those who can't sting like the desert

 

Earth & Humanity United

Funny enough

 

it's made of LOVE 🤣

Poor Spy

Poor spy, did they really tell you why?

Unawoke

I unawoke today, quite harshly

The sweet melodies & lyrics came crashing down

for the first time, in a long long time.

 

I don't aspire anymore. You can be, the

Better Version of me. 

 

You can be me, all that I am. You can be me

all that I am.

 

Today I unawoke from my Dream,

yet tomorrow another Poem.

Community Video Call

Dear Write Out Loud bloggers,

 

fellow member Manish and I (Kevin), thought it be good to have a Video Call with the community.

I thought it be nice to get to know each other better. 

 

I kindly asked our friendly moderator Graham Sherwood for options. He kindly replied that we poets could organise this ourselves. And therefore I'm posting it now!

Path of Christ

I was burdened with the Path of Christ

I can assure you that it's not a Money Heist!

It's a long and arduous practice

and you don't get paid like in an Office.

 

I walked the Path of Christ with grace.

I sacrificed myself in an endless haze

and now the stories have come to Death;

That's the end of all my Faith!

 

There will be no religion to my heart's content

Alive Again

Once again I feel reborn!

That's just a coup d'état,

a lover in a spa.

 

O many mundane midnights

have I slept across these turfs

and finally it's crept up;

I'll rise the tide that surfs!

 

This sickly soul of Ether,

This madness of Mundane...

These Miracles of Mirrors,

And YOU shall be profane!

Heartache In A Holster

I'm passionate about my sufferings,

it's like falling angels with folded wings,

it's like torment on what-could-have been

and a little late to quit this scene!

 

But I know the sweet relief will come

and I'll be better than before!!

And all the anguish that you scream

will be @ Nightmare's happy lore :D:)

The Blessed Boredom

it's high on virtue and on love,

NO, that is a false perversion.

Planetability

How come we put our national interests

above our global interests?

 

I know this is a stupid question,

but I am an equally stupid human.

 

Perhaps guns, boms and wars serve the greater good?!

and if they don't, maybe they should?!

Craftsmanship

There's beauty in this story:

The fine line between heroin and heroine (often lost and erred by non-natives such as me)

signifies certain subtleties;

Once become aware, any human would immediately correct itself.

 

Why are we so afraid to change systems that we know are incorrect? 

 

Is it not our craftsmanship that has led us to this prosperous era?
