Secret Indulgence

I keep you hidden from the
prying eyes of the world
and devour you,
when night time comes
Slowly, I drown in
your sweet fragrance
Guilty, like a
secret indulgence.


The next prompt for #augunfiltered was Secret Indulgence. And I almost didn’t come up with anything till the last moment!

Moiety

It doesn’t matter

how many words were unsaid,

Because each moiety of my heart

would love you anyway

With every bated breath!


Moiety means each of two parts into which a thing is or can be divided. Indefinite share or part. For ex: the tax was to be delivered in two pieces.
Bated means eagerly or anxiously.

Bated breath literally means “holding one’s breath. .

The next prompt of #augunfiltered was moiety. I must admit it proved to be a very challenging prompt but the thought in the post is very simple. That even if your heart is broken into a million pieces, each one is capable of love anyway. In fact, it makes your heart and your feelings even bigger when you’ve gone through something tragic. Because you can now recognise the importance of each moment and emotion. Here the person is waiting with bated breath because they are ready to love even with their heart in pieces. It’s not terribly sad, but very inviting. .

Here lies…

If you’re looking
for the girl who wrote poetry,
she died. And here she lies,
with a head full of ideas
and a smile brimming with life.
She left her stories behind.
She’ll still be here if you care
In her truest words, in the black and white.


For the prompt: Write 5 lines that would appear on your epitaph. I’m posting daily on Instagram @sv__poetry! I never felt that I was so good to write for my own epitaph. But wanted to be so meta as to do that for the challenge. In our culture, we don’t have burials or epitaphs, which made this even more unique for me. Leave comments about what your preference should be for the words on your stone.

Wise Words Wednesday 10.17.18

Fairy tales in childhood are stepping stones throughout life, leading the way through trouble and trial. The value of fairy tales lies not in a brief literary escape from reality, but in the gift of hope that goodness truly is more powerful than evil and that even the darkest reality can lead to a Happily Ever After. Do not take that gift of hope lightly. It has the power to conquer despair in the midst of sorrow, to light the darkness in the valleys of life, to whisper “One more time” in the face of failure. Hope is what gives life to dreams, making the fairy tale the reality.

—L.R. Knost

It is important to have dreams, however childish or unachievable they may seem. They give us a goal to work towards. Happy Wednesday, everyone!

Wise Words Wednesday 10.10.18

The universe works in crazy ways. Your good luck will come in waves, and so does your bad, so you have to take the good with the bad and press forward.

-Nick Cummins

I was never a firm believer of luck, until I saw some things pan out in life. I wouldn’t say that I was changed, but I do believe after having witnessed that circumstantial evidence! Haha, not to be too wise, but I accept the ebb and flow of life now. DO you guys believe in luck?

Indigo Dreams (short poetry)

I dream of the perfect view
Envisioning the sights you drew
Thoughts of deep red, and blue
Just me and you, of the lucky few.

Scribbled in indigo words
Inked in your thoughts forever
Leading me in with each clue
A slow, and delicate coup.

Don’t wake me up tonight too.


This was first posted on the blog in October 2017. Through Flashback Fridays, I try to relive some of my favorite posts. The thought for this one was that these people we love live on in our dreams, which is why the last line says – don’t wake me up. So that we can enjoy their presence for just a moment longer.

Something I’m worried about.

Will my words ever be enough
to calm the storm of emotions
and the thunders of a healing heart?


Prompt: Something I’m worried about. I did the daily posting challenge over on Instagram where this was one of the prompts. All were very thought-provoking and that made you search your soul for words.

I could have written something mundane – like life, struggles, and daily chores, but this had a certain profoundness and truth that I couldn’t resist myself!

Music (Haiku)

If you find me
silent groovin’
Headphones drowning
the world’s
Crass cacophony,
I’m happy,
Dancing to my own music!


Crass – insensitive

Cacophony – harsh, discordant mixture of sounds that can be disturbing.

For the prompt: a haiku on cacophony. And I thought what better than head phones that cut down the noise of the world and let you escape to your own world of music!

Phoenix Girl (Something You’d Say to an Ex)

I’m slowly chipping away
At the pieces of me you left behind
Rising from the ashes
Like a phoenix ready to shine.


This was written for the prompt : Something you would say to an Ex. So, this applies to all your ex-friends, family and boyfriends/girlfriends. I’m sure there are all kinds of exes you leave behind, or who left you behind. This can be a motivational post because it would give you the push and inspiration to look ahead and be so much more than the person you were in the past.
