Poems of Myself-Part 2 (or Passing the Pits)

I haven’t really published much poetry, so here I am again with the 2nd part to this collection (most of the the poems do not have names, if you come up with some, send them to me and if I like them, I’ll put them on it and yes, I’ll give you a shoutout)

Poem #4

I shift too easily from

One thing in my mind

To another;

The slippery slope

My life has become,

Is hurting me far

Too hard for me to

Help hold up anymore.

 

Poem #5

It feels like a while indeed

But I just had to leave

This comfy, cozy

Place I ceased to grow,

Where I got deeper, deeper

And had nothing to show for it;

I blame my woes on

Technology and indecision

Both putting me in a collision

With the void.

 

Poem #6

I fight them,

You fight them too,

Those sinister thoughts

Telling you you’re

Worthless, expendable

And truly dead inside.
Let me tell you the truth,

You’re just letting

Your old self die

And in its place

Find a wonderful,

New, never seen

You come from the ashes.
Negative thoughts will

Always be there,

But you have power

To keep your mind still.

 

Poem #7

Indecision is like a tiny demon,

It pops up when you’re most

In need, and fills you

With questioning quirks.

 

This demon must be

Pushed far out into

The deepest, deep sea

Before the worst becomes true,

When you don’t even know

What the mirror shows you

Any longer.

February Update: I’m back from the dead (again)

Today was Super Bowl Sunday, hope you enjoyed your parties. Starting this month, I will do these updates bimonthly (exceptions made for special updates, I’ll mark them as such). Let’s begin!

Creative Updates

So, poetry is making a comeback here! I promised in the last update to publish some before Christmas, but I just didn’t have much decent material to draw off of. No promises on when, but I promise it’s coming soon. As for stories, I’m planning on continuing Remembering Last Christmas in another short story. That’s been under way since I published the last one. Hope to get that ASAP, my life seems to only get busier and busier.

Commentary Updates

I’m planning to do some more commentary pretty soon. That’s all I will say on that for now. If you have any suggestions about anything at all, don’t be afraid to contact me on the blog’s email (check the contact page for that) or the contact form on the same page. Have a great Valentine’s Day (I’ll be alone as usual).

Yours truly,

Gideon
