Can Anybody See Me?

PROMPT: The Unseen  | GROUP: In This Together

Will it take an aeon of my bottom at rest
for an equivocal preceding of my mind's eye?
Like Poe and Shakespeare's very best,
will they also reminisce the worth of I?

An obverse of this currency's tail;
the sight of an intellect.
His works prevail, bethink by all.
A travail it is as I carve mine to the wall.

A meritorious fruit, is this
or quite one of the dearths?
for the hungry minds can this be a satisfactory? ...

Wind, It Blows

PROMPT: The Unseen  | GROUP: In This Together

It blows and sways the trees,
It keeps us on our feet,
Through the evening air,
Past the midnight glare.

Through the summer breeze,
Oh, though it makes me sneeze,
I do enjoy,
The calm, swift happy boy.

During the winter day, it sends a chill,
But even I know, what fun to roll downhill.

It blows and blows once more,
Never ceasing to creep up the moors,
Through the shallow,
To the sea below,
The wind shall always blow...

He is tired
she is annoyed
both have completed another cycle of rotation
their heart yearns for something
something very deep
something very beautiful
something very heart warming
something everyone wants
something that makes everyone happy
APPRECIATION

Appreciate them for everything and anything 
it doesn't need to last hours
it don't have to be speech
just seconds and
small spellings can create magic   
they survived the battle 
they won the battle
which is easy to fail

Missing

PROMPT: The Unseen  | GROUP: In This Together

Aujonae Marie Armstrong Aujonae like many young black girls are missing I never notice how many of our little black girls were miss until i looked at the missiing persons list.

But most of them are never reported about 75,000 black women go unreported when they go misssing.

Don't just let more go without being noticed
don't let the BLM get the best of us
Not only for black but for the people of color

Post-War

PROMPT: The Unseen  | GROUP: In This Together

You will see thousands of colourful fabrics like a flock of pigeons.
Boldly written on every paper; Freedom! Power! Democracy! The entire thesaurus, really.
Burnished teeth of the emperors reflected by the camera flashes. Ready to only answer praises.
The jingle of people flowing in the air and streams into your ears.

You will also find stunning scenery from some of the fighters:
Kissing the home of their heart,
Forget that they were apart,
Humming dreams--ready to restart.

And if...

Beneath the blanket of sorrow

PROMPT: The Unseen  | GROUP: In This Together

Within us lies,
The music of our soul,
The reflection of our heart,
Strong and powerful.

Which is longing to be found,
Which must be found,
Which is present everywhere,
In feelings; light and dark.

The unseen happiness,
We are blessed with,
Lies beneath the blanket of sorrow,
We never care to unveil.

Songs and Stories

PROMPT: The Unseen  | GROUP: In This Together

Songs and stories are everywhere. Even when there's no one to sing them, even when there's no one to listen. The mountains sing songs of the wind, tell stories of the earth. The stars tell the stories of their constellations. We tell them around fires and on carpets on rugs, and make our noise resound through cities in a rhythm made of words. Our stories, heroes and villains, connect us, our songs contain emotions that don't need words. The sea...

Who are you when the weight of the world is gone.

PROMPT: The Unseen  | GROUP: In This Together

The way we live is always under scrutiny
We are always figments of whatever pre-disposed idea of what a person is  
But who are we when no one is watching
We are the dreams
Invisible to some
Beautiful but unseen
We shape ourselves into something humanity will accept
Cutting off pieces we are too afraid to accept

It is Time To Grow Up

The contents of this specific evil is taught.
The babies grow to become relatively humble children,

The moment one questions,

Passion flies through the window and power takes it place

PROMPT: The Unseen

     White poppies 
People running helter-skelter, 
Mama is shouting "where is my daughter!"
Gunshots, bomb blasts,
Swords drawn from their sheaths.
We thought; it was a thing of the past,
But we still find it hard to breathe, 
Hard to live, hard to see.

Beautiful white poppies in the garden,
Where every creature lives happily.

Everyone trusts no one,
'Cause a mother slaughtered her teen,

The Shadow

PROMPT: The Unseen  | GROUP: In This Together

Your stalker:
a transcending presence
traces each step, paving your trail
he camouflages in the lingering darkness that follows you
consumes you
defines you,
you

Your figure:
precisely defined by the obscurity of your forged delectation
is heightened by the shadows cast
the cast that accentuates your imperfections
your indignity
your desolation,
you

Your self:
the antithesis of your shadow
the lightness
faded
disregarded,
shadowed

Anxiety 

I honestly don't know 
My days are gloomy
I deeply inhaled
I can't breath 
Eyes blood-red from crying
I just said "I'm actually sad,
why do I feel bad?"

Anxiety

I'm unsure
Scared
Doubting 
This will all be a mess...
I'm trapped 
It's crazy enough to be 
Imprisoned in your own mind
What more could it do to me
If I can't even get in luck with life

Anxiety

The feeling or worrying 
The feeling of unease

Everywhere is Everything

PROMPT: The Unseen  | GROUP: In This Together

Everywhere is darkness,
everywhere is light.
There is always day
and there is always night.

Everywhere is loneliness,
everywhere is connection.
There are always people
if not always reception.

Everywhere is noise,
everywhere is silence.
There is always quiet 
hiding amongst the violence. 

Everywhere is broken,
everywhere is pristine.
There may still be beauty
waiting to be seen.

Everywhere is...

Everywhere is everything:
Turmoil and calm,
Forward and backward,
Ancient and modern.

The pejorative and laudatory
tangle into one.

A BROKEN SOUL

PROMPT: The Unseen  | GROUP: In This Together

Sitting alone here, looking at that plain blue sea,
I'm holding onto my heart that wishes to run away from everything left behind me..

Screaming, crying, letting those tears dwell my eyes,
But silence is what I only get, while looking up at those dull, dark skies..

Its going to end soon, is what I thought  and pretended to be strong,
But now there's no more to pretend, because I'm finally proven wrong..

It's done, nothing's going change with everything...

Shining Lies

PROMPT: The Unseen  | GROUP: In This Together

Lies are everywhere
I feel as if i am falling
With only a net of deceptions to catch me
But i believe in light
Light that never ends, a hope that is always golden and bright and mine
Only mine
Because, as i reminisce, i see myself in this illusion, free like i was once before
Light will shine within and without me, crippling everything i touch 
Until 
an explosion of ashes 
Silence
Darkness
Stillness

The Hollow of Breath

PROMPT: The Unseen  | GROUP: In This Together

The racing of a heart, still
apprehensive in its dawn.
The steeling of a will,
a soul, inside, is torn.

The indomitable, unsurpassable, 
most daunting of all horrors. 
Too close to ever evade -
The Mind.

My conjurer, my personal demon.
Bone deep power.
How it creates that which none have ever seen
in the flesh,
is the true terror.

It threads through the heart of all peoples,
feeding their imagination,
seeping into an ink-black room,
a figment of air...

A Mutual Acquaintance

PROMPT: The Unseen  | GROUP: In This Together

I lose myself in his words.

For in his words are a safe place.
A safe, twisted place.

In his words no hopeful dream, can hope to stay
Because there, fear prowls, eager to consume.

Don't believe what he says.
His words are like a broken mirror, 
the most beautiful complexion will always be distorted in it's reflection

No, his words are an enemy to growth
and an antonym to truth.

His words are the lies we allow to take...

Ghost of my past

PROMPT: The Unseen  | GROUP: In This Together

I see you in the lake down by the meadow. 
I hear your voice in the song of the cuckoos. 
What could I have done, 
to make you stay? 
One more night, 
by my side, 
just like the old times. 

I know I hurt you, 
I know I did. 
Should've said I loved you. 
Should've made you stay. 

I saw you, 
but I couldn't, 
I heard you, 
but I didn't. 

The memories keep me awake, 
day and night.
