A Poem by Kaliou

You cannot refuse the sunset.

Inevitability is the false illusion of control.


In chaos and calamity I find logic,

In agony and loneliness I find comfort.

Why am I here?


Reclaiming sanity only through rejection,

I am a prisoner of your adoration,

I defy your pagan gods,

I defy your -

I defy.


“I am a grain of sand in the eye of the sun”


Abandoned by loneliness,

Empathy was never a choice.

Embodied by solitude,

I personified love.


In the heart of the heart of another body

In the heart of -

In the heart.

Interesting commentary on life and hardening yourself against what it throws at you. Although I find, though emotion can hurt, it makes you stronger in the end. Or maybe I'm just a romantic :P

Very nice. It reminds me of how punishing life actually is, punishing enough to be called Hell.

writing a poem with a quote was really great, it reminded me as if you turned a picture into a story, like a lot of writers do. and that was great. I loved it and the writing, very "pure" to me.

Your piece is thought provoking. I like the use of the quote however you are creative and could have developed that line on your own with the same premise....

I especially like the incomplete lines, by leaving them incomplete you are in fact completing the thought.
