Intersections Of Life

A Poem by storiestotell

For the creative poetry group.


Beguiling roads we travel,

influenced by generations of

pill remedies,

sexual games,

and popularity.

We live like shredded particles,

waiting to be noticed, but are lost

among the grains of doubt laying on the ground.


We wear our waffle-stompers

to keep from falling off the

mountains of hard times.

Broken hinges of dreams dangle at our feet,

blocking the path to a better way of living.

Steep holes in our mines keep

us from better choices.


We find it abstruse to unplug our

deaf ears and listen to the wise.

Tarpeia men and women crush

themselves with deceit and lies,

leaving betrayal following behind,

and lustful shadows mocking us.

Pleasures kindle our burning hearts.

Crying brunt tears of regret haunts us,

drowning ourselves in a vat of no return.


Contradiction is our home,

plenty of room for,


and our family of medications

sexual demons,

and our need to be seen by the world.


We try to polish ourselves,

but we are tarnished,

and continue to travel a dead end road.

Very honest and true. We often dont get what we expect from life. Sometimes life can feel meaning less.

Broken hinges of dreams dangle at our feet,
blocking the path to a better way of living.

I can certinly relate to these lines. great job.

I really like this. It describes how choices we make can be important turning points in our lives, for better or worse.

it is when we realize how our decisions through life make us that we know there is a better life and a better place...
