Released Demons

Released Demons

A Poem by Cyntax
"

Inspired by Chet Faker's "Love and Feeling"

"
Internal demons coexist with my prophecy.
Cleansing of the soul is surely what it's got to be.
Stumbling life's falls of Niagara,
Impotent spirit, now high on Viagra.

The small stuff destroyed. No more sweat.
Slot machine winnings, but never made a bet.
Voices lead me to meditation's path.
Nightly over-thought provides sedation's wrath.

I'm cool...
And it's hot.
Only strength. No pity. Earned me a spot.

Release.
Release what was never mine.
So simplistic challenges make me divine.

i find this a fascinating short piece of poetry...the analogy of the slot machines....as in vegas...often people win on those, but the winnings are scant compared to going for the big chances...if we take smaller chances in life, take smaller risks, it is easier to achieve...so should we be satisfied with small accomplishments? or is that coping out, not going for the big risks?

what makes us satisfied? and is playing it safe the best bet?

questions i find are raised by your poem.

nicely done.

A better life if we could release demons.
"Release.
Release what was never mine.
So simplistic challenges make me divine."
We would be in a better place if we could know peace and calm. Thank you old friend for sharing your outstanding poetry.

Deeply pondered and well expressed, G. Your words encourage the reader to shake off the cobwebs and simplify...

Don't sweat the small stuff, let go of the desire for material possession, the path to salvation will come from the purity which follows the purge. Very thought provoking!

G, so good to read you my friend. This is fantastic.

The small stuff destroyed. No more sweat.
Slot machine winnings, but never made a bet.
Voices lead me to meditation's path.
Nightly over-thought provides sedation's wrath.

Loved this stanza, wonderfully said! I loved it, well done as ever.

I really have missed reading your work. I like the staccato beat of this. We need to take life one step at a time. Our emotions, attitudes and destinies can be in a constant state of juxtaposition. Even if we stop or stutter step for a moment we still end up moving toward something...we just don't always know what.

The small stuff destroyed. No more sweat.
Slot machine winnings, but never made a bet.
Voices lead me to meditation's path.
Nightly over-thought provides sedation's wrath.
