Conflict of Existence

When it comes to love
And you feel the walls shatter
And the laughter resound and reverberate throughout your whole body
Let the idealist lead and the realist govern

“Control”
“Relax”
They tell you
“They are chemicals
Giving way to chemicals
Controlled by electrical impulses
Take your place
Control this urge to destroy
Capture this conflict
That colours your world”

“Where did all the Passion go?
The lingering bliss?”

“Just a novelty
Ordinary, so ordinary
Don’t bother to look
To try
To think
Or to feel”

I will never forgive you
Or forget my dreams
What I truly see is what I cannot have
Do not try to be happy

British Blues: Some of my Favourite Things

 

August 10

 

All the world’s a stage
And all men and women merely players*
Their colours and their forms, were then to me
An appetite: a feel and a love
That had no need of a remoter charm**
One little soldier boy left all alone
He went out and hanged himself
And then there were none***
And the hapless Soldiers sigh
Runs in blood down Palace walls****

Prompt: Think of a place that you love to visit or would like to visit some day. Create a piece based on the feelings that place gives you.

*As You Like it By WIlliam Shakespeare
** “Lines Composed a Few Miles above Tintern Abbey on Revisiting the Banks of the Wye during a Tour” By William Wordsworth
***Nursery Rhyme featured in And Then There Were None By Agatha Christie
****”London” By William Blake
