Euphonious

Euphonious

A Poem by DoormanDan

Renewed energy does wonders for a person.

Euphonious

I put my own heart in a straitjacket
With my overthinking and capricious actions,
Then lost myself in prairies of plastic,
But through excursions with Retrospective
I've now found a prismatic perspective.

The leaves that once were red are now again viridescent,
And stars once somnolent have awoken, incalescent.
I'll admit I still haven't cured my mind's dissonance,
But now its music is a little more euphonious.

Time has taught me to lead with levity
Through this melancholia that mars elation.
My friends, I say this with sincerity,
I'm forever thankful for your patience
While I rediscovered Life's resplendence.

The leaves that once were red are now again viridescent,
And stars once somnolent have awoken, incalescent.
I'll admit I still haven't fully cured my mind's dissonance,
But now its music is a little more euphonious.

With my newfound Vigor I gambol
Across every line of this notebook,
Laughing so loudly as we ramble
And just enjoy this brand new outlook.
Though I'm still clinging to what went wrong
Over the years I've been flittering
Through this world, I now pen all my songs
With insight that I was once missing.

The leaves that once were red are now again viridescent,
And stars once somnolent have awoken, incalescent.
I'll admit I still haven't fully cured my mind's dissonance,
But now its music is a little more euphonious.


Capricious - sudden change in mood or behavior
Prismatic -  varied and brilliant
Viridescent - to be or becoming green
Somnolent - sleepy, drowsy
Incalescent - becoming hotter
Dissonance - lack of musical harmony between notes
Euphonious - pleasing to the ears
Mar - Disfigure
Gambol - to run/jump around playfully
Flittering - to move quickly in a purposeless/ random manner

Author's Note

DoormanDan
And I'm back again. This piece concludes what I'd call a stage of "self-exploration" in a way. As I've said in the last few pieces, I've been going through a Hell of a lot of stress with college and work these past few months, and while I did handle all of it, I feel like I didn't handle it as well as I should have. It was fine at first, but then worries just began to cloud my mind frequently, making it where my inner muse was rather hard to find, and when I did find it, it wasn't as organized as it once was. I started getting agitated more easily, became a little bit of a pessimist, and just wasn't at my healthiest mentally (although this stuff wasn't anywhere near as bad as it may sound when I write it here, so don't worry). Now that I've put a lot of that stuff behind me, though, I'm beginning to feel focused again. It's still not perfect, but I'm getting back there. I don't know when I'll next post, or even write, anything, as my Summer from July 1 onwards until at least December is going to be extremely busy (I'm moving out of my parents house into a dorm at my college's main campus in August, and from July 1 until then, I'm going out of my home state to work at a summer camp), but it's all good. I've found renewed energy for things, and even have a bunch of fresh ideas for writing that I'm hoping to get fleshed out eventually.

Anyway, as usual, tell me what you think, and be honest! Until next time. :)
