In the Dark
The darkness falls, a shroud so deep,
As the creatures of the night begin to creep.
Their eyes aglow, with an eerie light,
As they slink in the shadows, out of sight.
A rustling sound, a whisper of wind,
A chill runs down your spine, within.
Your heart beats fast, as fear takes hold,
And you know you're alone, so cold.
The shadows dance, a twisted waltz,
As the creatures move with stealth, so false.
Their claws scrape against the ground,
A macabre symphony, without a sound.
You try to run, to find a way out,
But the darkness grips you, it knows no doubt.
It whispers to you, in a voice so low,
A haunting melody, of woe.
And then you see it, a shape so vile,
A monster's form, with a twisted smile.
Its eyes meet yours, a chilling sight,
As it moves in closer, with all its might.
You scream and plead, but it's too late,
The creature's grip, it seals your fate.
Its teeth sink in, a searing pain,
As you feel yourself start to wane.
The darkness claims you, a victim to its might,
As the creatures of the night take flight.
Your screams echo, through the empty air,
A warning to all, to beware.
So if you venture out, in the darkness of the night,
Remember this warning, with all your might.
For the horrors that lurk, are beyond compare,
And once they find you, they won't let you spare.
If I were a food, I would be a gourmet three-course meal, with each course representing different facets of my personality and life experiences. I would start with a light, refreshing salad, followed by a rich and hearty main course, and end with a sweet and decadent dessert.
For my first course, I would serve a fresh and vibrant arugula salad with a homemade citrus vinaigrette. The peppery arugula represents my bold and confident personality, while the citrus dressing symbolizes the zesty and adventurous spirit that drives me forward. The salad would also be topped with crunchy walnuts, representing the strength and resilience that has helped me overcome obstacles in my life. I would serve this salad as a reminder to always stay true to myself and never be afraid to take risks.
For my main course, I would serve a slow-roasted prime rib with garlic mashed potatoes and sautéed asparagus. The tender and juicy prime rib represents my compassion and empathy for others, while the savory garlic mashed potatoes symbolize the comfort and warmth that I strive to provide for those around me. The asparagus adds a touch of sophistication and elegance, representing my love for art and culture. I would serve this main course as a reminder to always prioritize the well-being of others and to never forget the importance of self-care.
Finally, for dessert, I would serve a decadent chocolate lava cake with a side of fresh berries. The rich and indulgent chocolate cake represents my passion for life and my desire to live it to the fullest, while the berries symbolize the sweet and simple pleasures that bring joy to my everyday existence. I would serve this dessert as a reminder to always cherish the moments that make life worth living and to never forget to savor the sweetness in life.
As for why I chose this particular meal to represent myself, I believe that each course represents a different aspect of my personality and life experiences.

A tumultuous sea of emotions inside me roars,
A constant battle between pain and joy, it pours.
Pain grips me tightly, like a vise around my heart
Aching and throbbing, tearing me apart
It steals my breath and clouds my mind
Leaving me helpless, to suffer in kind
Sadness envelopes me, a heavy cloak to wear
Tears fall like raindrops, leaving me bare
Memories flood in, of love that's lost
A heart shattered, with too high a cost
Sadness grips my heart with its icy fingers,
Dragging me down to where darkness lingers.
Anxiety grips me, like a vice around my throat
Breathless and trembling, a feeling remote
I fear the unknown, the what ifs and maybes
Leaving me helpless, to worry like the babies
Anxiety grips me in its suffocating hold,
Making it hard for me to be bold.
Scare grips me, like a monster in the night
Terrifying and haunting, filling me with fright
I try to escape, to run and to hide
But the fear within, it will not subside
Scared of what the future may hold,
I feel like I'm slowly losing my hold.
Happiness fills me, like sunshine on my face
A warm and gentle feeling, a loving embrace
It lifts me up and fills me with light
Making everything seem so bright
But amidst all this chaos and pain,
There's a glimmer of hope that keeps me sane.
Happiness, like a ray of sunshine, peeks through the clouds,
Filling me with warmth that melts away the shrouds.
And though I'm nervous about what's to come,
I know that I'll find my way, my heart beating like a drum.
For life is a journey with ups and downs,
And it's up to us to turn our frowns.
Nervousness grips me, like a butterfly in my gut
Fluttering and stirring, with knots in my gut
I'm scared to move, to take a step forward
But the thrill within, it cannot be ignored
Understanding Oneself, Knowing Others
Understanding others is knowledge, they say,
To walk in their shoes, and see their way,
To see the world from a different view,
And comprehend their struggles anew.
To know their fears, to feel their pain,
To understand what they hope to gain,
To listen closely to their words,
And see the meaning that's not absurd.
For in knowing others, we gain insight,
Into the human condition, day and night,
Into the joys and the sorrows that we share,
Into the bonds that connect us everywhere.
But understanding oneself, that's the key,
To unlocking the mysteries of identity,
To knowing who we truly are,
And shining light on our own star.
To explore our fears and doubts,
And understand what life's about,
To uncover our passions and desires,
And light the flames of our inner fires.
For in knowing oneself, we find peace,
And learn to let our own souls release,
To grow and change and evolve each day,
And walk a path that's our own unique way.
So let us seek to understand others, true,
But let us not forget, in all we do,
That understanding ourselves is the key,
To unlocking our own true destiny.
In the stillness of my mind,
A sense of detachment I find.
As though my soul is adrift,
And my body has lost its gift.
Thoughts and feelings all a blur,
As I disconnect and defer.
To a world that's not quite real,
Where nothing has a true feel.
Faces seem to fade away,
And my sense of self does fray.
Amidst the chaos and confusion,
I'm left with a sense of illusion.
Time becomes a distant dream,
And reality's not what it seems.
I'm lost in a world of my own,
Where nothing is set in stone.
Dissociation, a state of being,
Where all that I know is fleeting.
A place of darkness and of light,
Where I wander in endless night.
Though the journey may be hard,
And the path may seem unmarred.
I'll keep moving forward still,
Through the mist and through the chill.
For I know that in the end,
I'll find my way back again.
To a world that's solid and true,
Where I'll know just what to do.
Tempest in My Soul
My mind is a labyrinth,
A maze of twisting turns.
Paths that lead to nowhere,
And bridges that never return.
Each step a hesitant one,
As I wander through the fog.
The shadows loom around me,
Like demons from a bog.
My thoughts are like a river,
A stream that never ends.
Flowing on forever,
Through bends and curves and bends.
Sometimes it's calm and peaceful,
A gentle, soothing flow.
But other times it's violent,
A torrent of pain and woe.
My heart is like a bird,
A creature that's set free.
But sometimes it's trapped and caged,
And struggles to be free.
It beats within my chest,
A rhythm all its own.
But sometimes it's a whisper,
A barely heard moan.
Dissociation is a storm,
A tempest in my soul.
It tears me apart inside,
And never lets me whole.
But even in the darkness,
I know that I'll survive.
For though the storm may rage,
I'll always be alive.
A Rainbow Embrace
Kaleidoscope, oh how you spin
A myriad of colors, a world within
A prism of light, a symphony of hues
A magical world that we can all view
With each turn, a new scene appears
A kaleidoscope of beauty that brings cheers
A dance of colors that never fades
A wonder that nature has made
The patterns shift and twist in a dance
A kaleidoscope of beauty, a glorious chance
To see the world in a new light
A kaleidoscope of colors that's always in sight
Kaleidoscope, a symbol of life
A journey of colors, a path of strife
A reminder that beauty is everywhere
In every turn, in every stare
So take a look, and spin the wheel
A kaleidoscope of wonder, a magical feel
Let the colors transport you to a new place
A world of beauty, a rainbow embrace.
A Word so Strange
Kaleidoscope, a word so strange,
Yet filled with colors, so vivid and range.
A world within, a sight to behold,
Every turn, a new story to be told.
A myriad of hues, blending and merging,
Each color, a tale of its own, urging,
To be heard, to be seen, to be felt,
In the heart, in the mind, in the soul, melt.
An ever-changing pattern, a symphony of light,
A dance of colors, so dazzling, so bright,
A feast for the eyes, a treat for the mind,
A universe of possibilities, so hard to define.
Kaleidoscope, a symbol of life,
A journey of colors, amidst strife,
A reminder to us, to embrace change,
To find beauty, in what may seem strange.
So let us hold onto the kaleidoscope,
Let us revel in its beauty and scope,
Let us see the world, with a new perspective,
A world that is vast, and truly reflective.
For in the kaleidoscope, we find,
A world that is ever so kind,
A world that is full of wonder,
A world that is truly a thunder.
I started writing about six years ago when I was so aware of my feelings.
Not just romantically but as well as spiritually, emotionally and physically.
With no one to share these feelings I started to write my thoughts, some of them poetically. Someone noticed my writings, my notes and admired it. Then I stopped.
Then there was the time that I was so down and has no one to tell my thoughts so I started again to write every now and then.
Presently I only write when I feel like it.
And I have already learned how to manage my feelings.
