Our shells decay over time,
Souls trapped in finite casings
Ghosts of a terrestrial plane.
We are, we are, sublime.
Consciousness captured through ingenuity,
Subconsciousness fueling creativity,
Driven by proficiency,
We are, we are ambiguity.
Disparity in human principle,
Purpose defined objectivity,
Time is running out, yet
We are, we are, invincible.
“Death is so terribly final, while life is full of possibilities.”
― George R.R. Martin
Camp NaNo is around the corner. Let’s take the world by storm!
Such exquisite technique of using rhythm and rhyme…very sophisticated!
Thank you Rae. Kind words as usual, and they are greatly appreciated. 🙂
I give them sparingly …just ask my students as I write on their attempts to write.
I do wish you’d publish your poetry in a book! Love your style!
Haha I have never considered a poetry anthology. Thank you though, I’ll make a special one for you in the future 😉
You can include your poems throughout your novel, where appropriate. I always thought that was cool about King, how he began chapters with poetry or song lyrics.
That’s actually a great idea. I always wanted to start with quotes so using my own poetry is great.
