The Vanguard Division

Shining like a well-lit brazier
Flames waving in the dark
Hard to imagine something crazier
Than a lighthouse with feet
Stationed in a sea of doubts
One of the many beacons
Fighting to keep the heat.

Ambitious enough
To be God’s archer
Shooting at the stars
No terrain too rough
No challenge deemed hard
When the almighty
Is on your side.

-Dante

Alphabet Soup.

Reverberated reasoning
Combined
With ceaseless seasoning
Of mentally cooked pieces
In an effort
To perfect.

Cast.

That person who keeps pestering you?

Don’t worry about them, in fact

Instead of orchestrating rebuttals, be glad

That they take the time out of their day

To think of the worst things to say

To you, or whoever …

 

They forget, that during their plot planning

Time is moving, you’re living your life,

All they’re doing, is helping you live yours

By being an extra

In a storyline, in which you…

Are the main character.

 

-Dante

Sieving Tactics.

From that untimely solitude
Came a seamless transition
If not a multitude
Of unexpected revelations
Namely, Being a natural loner
Keeps me away
From drama-filled scenes
That I would rather cut short
At the seams
Before they get sewn
Into my life, or rather,
Before they manifest
Into something
I naturally detest.

-Dante

A Snare For The Poetic

The ideas I hunt for
The original ones
Come from a quiet place,
The only rhythm and beat
My heart’s pace.

Sometimes,
A touch from nature
Or a medley of emotions
Provide the necessary inspiration,
The only common factor
Silence,
Like the “b” in subtle.

-Dante

Maybe.

Maybe,
I have everything backwards
Maybe,
I just expect too much from people
Maybe,
If I could, I would
Do everything differently,
Maybe,
Im just too naive
Maybe,
I’m the one who’s wrong
Maybe,
I’ll be the exception
To societies expectations,
Maybe, just maybe …

-Dante

Nature’s Embrace.

Spread your arms
Embrace the breeze
As the prickly grass
Tickles your feet.

-Dante
