Yesterday, burglars attacked me

snuck in through my navel

slithered through the gaps under the door of my mind

tromped over and intruded my body

a heist of calm state and innocence

captured my breath, tamed my soul

ruptured my walls and windows,

cracks turned into sinkholes

aggressively pulling out my innards

my hefty veins

intermittently becoming violet and blue and violent

my heart was in a drag race,

in synch with my fingers

trembling of turbulence

but my brain is out of place

creeping in a fast-paced city

and I hear the world blowing their horns at me

when I’m at a march towards an imminent doom

deliverance comes in tiptoe

growing frail,

I gave birth to torment and fright

expelled the daze, exhaled the haze

my soul escaped, my breath smothered them

tomorrow is never an assurance

but I made it today

  1. especially wonderful imagery in the first section ending with violent, and in the last section, beginning with “I gave birth”…this poem gave me goosebumps (and for me that’s a sure mark of honesty in writing). thank you for this.

  2. I would be honest: this piece stands out from all others on this blog and I’ve read almost all by now. And I feel I know why. This isn’t about your love and this is also not about introspection or nature of reality as you perceive it. I feel it’s about some ‘trivialities’ some technical ‘nuances’ and unforeseen circumstances such as hackers and burglars. But I feel there was no cause for alarm as you know by now. You’re safe and your love is still flourishing through your poems! Enjoyed reading it. Much love ❤ ❤ ❤

  6. Amazingly written! The personification is unparalleled.
    Guard yourself, arm your body
    Prepare yourself
    For those beings spreading emotions so gory
    They’ll come again, and again
    Know your weakness, and drive you insane
    But you must face, with an unwavering grace
    Their dark evil blows
    With your own powerful vows
    I believe in you, believe in you
    A mind so powerful
    To bear such torments
    Needs an awakening
    From its long state of dormant
    You have the strength, nature’s daughter
    Let it flow through you, the universe shall empower
    Marry the warrior of light
    Let him fill you with knowledge unknown in sight
    Birth a shining future for yourself
    Worry not, for those who fight against the dark
    Shall grow into an inferno
    From their once whimpering spark
