The 6th Day

May 2017 – 31 Day Blog Challenge
Theme: My Five Senses Right Now

A gold mine turned to ash,
My hormones clashing –
I feel like I’m rotting trash on the inside,
Anxiety riding in on her White Horse
Irritation at high tide –
But I know within three days or so
This will pass, I’ll either forget
about it or bottle up inside
Taking what’s brooding and
Fashion a brew so toxic
But I’ll try my best not to let it
separate myself from you

Honestly I’ve been moody and not at my best the past couple of weeks so I’m not entirely sure how to write about the five senses right now since they are sorely clouded with anxiety and such.

This is the challenging I’m currently trying out. Participate if you’d like! Credits in the image. 🙂

As always, thank you for stopping by and reading.
Tiny Fawns is a poetry journal with occasional art work. 
I recently decided to participate in this challenge so that my followers and anyone who ventures into Tiny Fawns Land can have a clearer picture of who I am, what I do, etc etc.
I rarely if ever blog outside of poetry, so for you followers who follow me strictly for poetry, I hope you will be gracious for the month of May to see a daily update from me that is not poetry. 🙂 I willof course be continuing my daily updates of poetry in addition to this.

a shadow’s desire

they say shadows are the creepy little kings
ruling the edge of all things and when the sun
falls, they slowly rise taller until only the moon
can haunt their footsteps with a milky light
but i often wonder, if shadows might actually
desire to be the light, so others may find
a warmth in them, instead of the cold
maybe they want to be something gold

pajamas & crowns

people close in,
stamping their feet
beating the ground
with arrows and spears
you hear it all from them
saying you should change it up
try something new or bold
it all just gets old, though –
others throwing their
expectations around –
but there’s
nothing wrong with
staying in your pajamas
and not going out on the town –
sometimes all you
need in life cannot be found
in another’s assumptions, desires,
or goals or frowns, only you
can wear your crown

sharp & dull

twice as sharp but dull on both sides
is what i think of the guts of love and hatred –
in my brain, how love is good yet
hate brings pain, but when they merge
into one lane, they are then treated
as if they are one and the same –
both sides sharp to the touch,
cutting deep, when indulging in either
too much, too often, it becomes a struggle
to keep a balance and so, one becomes
dull, and when another shuffles
the cards or claims the knife
they are played like a fool
