The zone IV

Real truth is invaluable 
and luckily a reason for slight enjoyment
gets me through the zone faster
and helps me my feelings master

Author’s note:

‘The zone IV’ is the 4th and final part in an abstract and reflective piece about feeling more inspired and creative when writing poems, songs, etc. whenever you’re sad. It’s such a paradox and impasse because I appreciate writing, but I feel it’s best when I’m sad. On the other hand I’ve learned to appreciate these moments, so I get through my issues and feel better on the other side.

Field of mines

It has disappeared
before it came back
gave value to the bad times
enjoying a walk through a field of armed mines

Wounds need to reopen to heal properly
hiding underneath your skin
they’ll never disappear
wonder with your mind, see and hear

Author’s note:

‘Field of mines’ is a piece about not ignoring the bad times and going through them in order to get better. Building up emotions inside can result in them bottling up and exploding at some point.

The zone III

In reality it’s a paradox
for the best writing comes
from the saddest and truest moments
from when the soul really torments

Shovel

Let me down slowly
else I’ll let go forever
and forget you
you wouldn’t want that
my mind yours even if it goes mad

I’ll enjoy missing you
as much as I’ll loathe it
the hole you’ll leave behind
cannot be occupied
until shovel in the ground is applied

Author’s note:

‘Shovel’ is a poem about resentment toward an ex.

The zone II

It helps me share some thoughts
But are they real or forced
Are they just for your entertainment
And not really my way to vent

The zone I

Only true darkness
Takes me to the zone
Sometimes I think I try
To force myself to cry

Blinking lights

The sky is full of blinking lights
all for you, none for me
a sign of life for everyone to see
is this how it’s supposed to be

The trees have split
a leaf now leaves later
barren and untouched
beautiful and uncrutched

Author’s note:

‘Blinking lights’ is a piece inspired by Mark Oliver Everett (also known as E) from the band Eels. One of my favorite artists to listen to when I’m a bit down. The poem centers around an imbalance in a relationship.

Redemption

Don’t hit me up another time
do we ever change?
does our mind or heart?
repeatedly discard the shopping cart

Bad feelings won’t end
the status quo is at an impasse
don’t see any possible actions equal redemption
there’s no commissioner to grant that exemption

Author’s note:

‘Redemption’ is a piece about not being able to find that special someone.
