King of Flawed Reason

King of Flawed Reason

A Poem by Silente-Write
"

Imperfection...

"
Festering molestation of achin'...
I'm separated by my own demons, my own feelings leapt alive with meanin'...
I'm crowning myself king of flawed reason...
For the reason I stand alone most the time...
Is I'm not feeling very grown at the time...
Like a seed with no warmth, a man outta lines, my rhymes are not good enough...
I stow it under and keep grumblin', actin' tough, mining away and wondering if it will ever be true...
Will I follow a shining path or break hollow and used...
Blasted by traces of iced gas, leaving me numb and bruised...
A rats uncle I'm stuffy and masked, you are sultry and out of grasp...
So I gasp and raise myself above the bar, I raise my own bar...
The imperfection flawed is tar that stops and harms...
Will I garner enough force to engulf mars...
Or will I fall hard and overwhelmed...
Just scars...

This is so abstract, and so beautiful, just as always. I specially love the lines,

"The imperfection flawed is tar that stops and harms...
Will I garner enough force to engulf mars...
Or will I fall hard and overwhelmed...
Just scars..."

Just so beautiful.

Love,

Indeed depression is like caving. The deeper you go the narrower it gets. You have captured those feelings in a 'rap' of a poetic offering filled with salutary meaning.

Thanks so much, John
Avoid the cave walls, that is all, aha
I think you are perfect at wearing the crown of flawed reason. Depression plays on our insecurities and can reduce us from being a lion to a mouse. It can do it quickly as well. All those bloomin negatives can play havoc. You can go down hill fast, but it takes alot longer to climb back up. That's where your lines took me Silente.

Thanks so much! Sorry it has taken a minute to reply! Been away for a while. So true, my friend
Again you show why you are a poetry badass. This is a great piece, words you don't always see in poetry are not only used here, but you can't imagine the piece without them. Great job on another fine piece.

Yes, it's dark but strength, resilience, and courage shine through at the end. The rhyming is good, the pace excellent, the ending perfect. We get our asses kicked sometimes, but we get back in the fight. Nice work.

The demons of depression dot the air
And grow before uncertainties at bay.
A mighty force of poetry and care,
rides high in showing us a stronger way.

The questions cling like always, from afar,
but verses hold the power of relief.
A gasp, to rise above the reset bar,
denying doubt its handhold onto grief.

But, what of imperfections in one’s life?
Will they tar and feather all the good?
Depression is the cloud, the king of strife,
depending only on those things that could.

I think I understand this from the start
But if I missed the boat, it’s all on me.
The message here is one we take to heart.
You’ve left it plain and clear for us to see.
