Passion flies through the window and power takes it place

PROMPT: The Unseen
GROUP:  In this together

     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,
​Little boy with a gun,

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.

Unconscious

PROMPT: The Unseen  | GROUP: In This Together

The darkness
behind the scenes, 
the fortune
in those
hands
stained with blood.

Should we
leave it there?
after all if
we don’t see
it
maybe it
doesn’t 
exits.

But could we?
after all
it’s closer
then we ever imagined.

the caged animals
might
as well
one day become
us.

We fall
in to
this giant pit
going down
and
into
nothingness.

Will we regret?
Maybe
or maybe not
but 
eitherway
it’ll be
too late
to even
say
goodbye.

Untitled and unseen

PROMPT: The Unseen  | GROUP: In This Together

This is something everyone wishing they could see, what only a few can. 

People never believe, who'm just avoid the belief. 
At times, not everyone agreed with what we saw.

And so it was clear, for us it was seen. For them it was unseen. 

We, the seen, have decided that we will remain hidden alike our sights...
For the sake of the people who do not see the unseen.

Together we, the unseen, will in hope become apart of...

Invisible Emotions

PROMPT: The Unseen  | GROUP: In This Together

What can be felt but never seen or touched. The good and bad experiences that define us that foretell the course of our future. Problems without resolutions, a recipe without any ingredients. Life Shattered like glass, broken in pieces never again to be made whole. A Puzzle without all the pieces unable to be completed.
Despair Overwhelms impossible to neglect or ignore. Reality overcomes fantasy the harsh truth of the world becomes clear. The sad feelings of self hate we keep...

Happiness.

PROMPT: The Unseen  | GROUP: In This Together

You cant see it,
It's like the sun, It's in you
Some can't find it
Some can

When you think about it most of us don't until we finish
Finish school, Home, Work
Friends, Family, Lover
You can only find them when you can see it

Maybe it is unseen but when you find it
it's not invisible
it's you
It's Love

It's friendship
And It's Name is happiness

The queen you will never know

PROMPT: The Unseen  | GROUP: In This Together

I am the queen,
Of my little town
I am the queen,
Without a crown!

The hut is my palace,
The chair is my throne
My people have no malice,
My people never frown!

In my queendom
Of love and joy,
There is wit and wisdom
In every girl and boy.

I am no Helen,
I am no Psyche
For I rule the haven,
A place many seek.

That's who I am,
The queen of my town
And that's what...

Ever Present

PROMPT: The Unseen  | GROUP: In This Together

He's there in our time of need
We see him in the good
And seek him in the bad
Like the wind they whisper
At work in the leaves
But left unseen
Many names follow his tales
Of miraculous miracles
They say he is love
Call him creator
This all may be true 
But I know him as
Protector
King
Savior

Search for Happiness

PROMPT: The Unseen  | GROUP: In This Together

I searched the petrifying valleys of the underworld.
I wandered into the agonizing forest of shame. 
I encountered hardships and deceit, 
all to attain the whereabouts of bliss. 

I explored the cave of ignorance.
I climbed the monumental mountains of gloom. 

By my own free will, 
I secluded myself. 
This solitude, 
an encounter with the 
desolate desert of my mind. 

I wanted to feel the natural ecstasy of content. 
It was my one, greedy desire. 
I sought for its effects,  ...

Take Me to Love

PROMPT: The Unseen  | GROUP: In This Together

Take me to the first cry
When a mother smiles at her child
Take me to the last farewell
'Tween parents and the teen so wild

Take me to the Samaritan's heart
Who, though a stranger, would still pause
Take me to the warrior's way
Helping another with a different cause

Take me to the wife's quiet love
For her husband's every breath
Take me to the man's devotion
Who would not part till death

Take me to the gift...

Riddle Me this

PROMPT: The Unseen  | GROUP: In This Together

These are my poems for intangible things. The answers will be in the footnotes.
Today's the morrow,
Yesterday's today,
and tomorrow will be today.
What is time?

I smell sweet and overwhelmingly dirty from place to place.
Everyone uses me as is their lifeline,
but flowers reject me.
Not a single dent by time can stop me,
but only few acknowledges my presence.
What am I?

I make your spine shudder
and I make your eyes dart at every corner ...

Verse 1;
have you ever felt lost, have you ever felt scared, have you ever felt alone even when someone was there, your heart beats fast, but your lungs work slow, you look around but there ain’t nowhere to go, you try to catch your breath, you try to make a sound, you make a glance left, you take a look around, you make a glance right, you take a look down, your vision isn’t right, you might as well...
