Painted Memories

#atitude  
 
pass me the coffee
you actually want one
its got cinnamon in it

don't you ever change?
No, not...
...okay.
 
#laughter
 
hair
In the East grey equals wisdom
I feel like more of a smart ass....
does that count as wisdom :)

 
#Knowing
 
...my heart in my thoughts...
always a hand reaching out to You...
...still have moments of brilliance left in us

Perceptions Of Insurrection (NoPoo 63)

*
Baying mob
Smelling blood
Tasting meat
Rioting down hallowed halls
Freedom steeped history
Attempted rape
Of democracy
On capital hill

**
1776 for 2021
Difference is
This was no revolution
Just a bad loser
Inciting violence
Disguised presidential orders
Destroy election

***
World watched horror unfold
Country tearing itself apart
Flaming hatred
Insurrection twitter style
Plain sight organisation
Approved at highest level

Whispers

#love
 
I am at the mountains tonight
...hope I sleep good
see You soon, thank You  
for being by my side

 
#strength
Hope all is well with you  
and the night was kind
its a pizza night and board game evening here
 
#faith
 
such connections in life are rare...true ones I mean
the power of the souls over distance of our world

Hi Grace. Thank you for your entry. Just a little heads up, the first part has 21 words and the last piece has 19. The first entry also has two sections with 21 words. All three pieces should be exactly 20 words for this comp. Not a big deal... just wanted to give you the chance to change it

Face The Music

I

thinking of you

memories like leeches

you are the thief of thoughts

you are a beautiful haunting

I miss you...



II

collectively

we all know loss

familiar is the face of another's stranger

scars like finger prints

pain, a mutual acquaintance...



III

fingers like the language of music

every note, a universal dialect

the same song

a different ear

a different meaning...

Penance

 
I
 
death, alive in me
 
I am pleasure and suffering
 
a moment of joy and regret
 
sin and love, change agents...
 
 
 
II
 
alive in death
 
breathing in, the end
 
personal, collective apocalypse
 
filtered through perspective
 
one man's salvation is another man's hell...
 
 
 
III
 
speaking elegant hypocrisy
 
well said liar
 
when did sheep howl at the moon?
 
you are blind with eyes wide open...

Caught Up In Love

i
Our love is quiet as it is
fully submerged under
Water. I know that in
my heart I love you.

ii
I want to shout it
from the rooftops
as my lungs are full
With everything you
Are, love and light.

iii
I hear every breath and
heartbeat so I will never
forget the sound. We are
right here in this moment.

Thank you for your entries Cloventongue and EsWaller.

Cloventongue - the rules stipulate 2 entries only. Which 2 would you like to enter?

(All three can remain here, but please label one as a non-entry so I know which 2 are to be considered. Thanks.)

Courtyard (20 words challenge)

1

The window by my room
looks at a courtyard,
fourteen feet down to the ground.
A cave of predators, nightly.

2

Stop outside the cave.
Look down, between the cars.
No markers of the grave.
Fears are based on scars.

3
by morning itís
not sinister
just pale in
the grim
glaucoma light

the right angle
between houses
used for garages
