Feel·ings

To everyone who voted for my blog, thank you 🙂 . I am now waiting for the final results, once I know I will share; in the meantime, I will continue to write. Those who have followed me from the very beginning may notice that I’m not posting as much as I used to in the beginning. Ever since I got my job I have hardly had enough time to do everything I want, but I’m starting to find a balance. Soon i’ll have a holiday, and rest assured, I will go crazy on catching up then 😀

By the way, have you ever had a question for me but was hesitant or afraid to ask? Well, you can always get do that by using Curious Cat; and the best part is you can ask anonymously. So if you’re afraid of heat, you won’t get any; not that there’s any heat 🙂

The link to my Curious Cat page is here

 

Get to know me, and I, you.

My exterior, without a doubt

Has a forcefield that, 

To many, may seem impenetrable;

That may actually be the case,

But maybe it isn’t.

 

See what I did there?

That is, perhaps the best re-enactment

Of what those around me see during my interactions

I tell you something, without actually saying anything,

So engrained with the art, I am a mobile riddle.

 

Untying the knots that bind me

Is not the be all, end all,

I wish he would realize that

*ahem* pardon me, for showing my humanity.

 

In a bid to avoid being a narcissist like my mentor

I took every deviation possible;

Avoidance so overdone to the point of charting

Yet another, self-fulfilling prophecy.

 

I write about myself and they call me a narcissist

Given the impressionable labels of the consensus, I may be,

But did you take a moment to consider the fact

That I talk about myself

Because that may be, the one thing

I believe I actually know of?

 

The way I speak can be likened to that

Of an upside-down pyramid

Words start scattered all over the place, 

Eventually narrowing down to a singular point;

With that said, It may be time

For our fourth date, dear reader

I believe it is long overdue.

*********

 

Explored and went so deep into the self

Mapped out the makings of my intricate design,

Somewhere along the way, up became down

Left became right, right?

I would affirm that

But even those became tightly strung to denial.

 

The labyrinthian pathways were the least

Of my worries, for what use is delving deeper

Unlocking conscious gates

When you can not, even in the slightest

Locate the exit?

It’s power when you,

Within an instance, note the dotted lines

Meant to mark your lane,

Linking, eating them

In a single stream, like Pac-man.

 

Conscious of the limits projected,

Breaking what they term impossible,

Refilling my food palate

All in tandem.

 

The colour in my voice leaves arcs,

Leaping over the world’s hurdles

Sometimes in multiple shades

Terrestrials choose to call it a rainbow

But to each their own

For my words use the storm as a platform.

 

I fear no-one, but respect everyone

Chose a medium that does best to keep up

With what? Except, the traffic of my thoughts

Its creations, and all that follows.

 

I am not for everyone, nor do I want to be

Each match struck comes from a real place

I will not tell you what you want to hear

But what I believe I need to tell you.

Let me re-adjust my crown,

Pitching in, when the caged bird sings …

A King, best look good, before he feasts

On those social barriers, seemingly made bigger,

Every day

As if to compensate, for my insatiable appetite.

 

Remove the “smoke and mirrors”

You seem to think I lean on, to better translate

A language, I would break down – if I had the time,

What you see beyond the veil you have set for yourself

Is how my mind functions – or is it?

I only wish It was that simple to emulate through speech.

 

For a finite definition does not, in the slightest

Come close to the power I exhibit on the dreamscape

I exist within your reality, and when I so choose

Enter a dream sequence, making a bygone story

Of what you, in an entire lifespan, would describe

As the beginning and end of our time.

 

It’s a cold world, yet my words glimmer in the dark

The more the merrier, for when combined

They make the most elaborate bonfire;

And when I’m lost in the impending storm,

I look back, and there, far off in the distance

Lie my words, sentient in their materialization

Of the brightest lighthouse.

I choose to distance myself from anyone

Rather, anything, that intercedes

With the harmony, I work so hard to bring,

Lovers of money, inhibitors of the happy.

 

“Misery loves company” 

Undoubtedly,

Perhaps if they spent more time

Looking on the outside as they do

On the inside, it would be notably easier

To magnify the level of selfishness

In consideration, of the collective.

 

I would say “stop”

But even I’m not arrogant enough to assume

My words carry enough weight to change 

The hearts of everyone I speak to

In fact, all I do is try,

Try to be nice, try to be the best I can be

Try to dissuade the cultivation of darkness.

 

All things associated with the outside, of me

I can never truly account for, but I try,

If only to do my part

In making the world a better place.

 

But… as much as i’ll admit to not knowing

What you will do

After I try to push you to the light

I can, with every fibre of my being tell you

Not to bring that darkness to me

For trying to quell my burning ambition

Can, in essence, be likened to you attempting to hide

A supernova within the confines of your flammable garments.
