How I Amuse My Poetry Muse Vol X

Through the window pane I gaze,
As I look inside my mind;
Am I staring into space, or
am I trying to see through time…?
(Inspired by #ChocVerse prompt Unknown)

What lies in the heart of our minds?
Which of us dares to venture there,
Aware that the knowledge we find,
We may be unable to bear –
And unable to leave behind…?
(Inspired by #ChocVerse prompt Unknown)

My mind is like a
Lovecraftian hydra, a
cthulu of thoughts

Let me sink into your skin –
I want to feel you deep within
my soul,
so make me lose control –
’cause you know that I won’t swim,
so let your lust overflow as
I sink into our sin.
(Inspired by #TastyPoem prompt ‘Submerge/Immerse’)

Venus in chains –
Stolen away from the sun, now she’s numb
and lost in space;
Kept as Mars’ pet,
In his shadow
and yet
she’ll soon escape;
To return to her place
beside Earth,
who truly appreciates
her worth,
And knows
never to stand in her way.
(Inspired by #TLPoetry prompt ‘Planets of the Solar System’)

My private empire
wrought in an assortment of
primary colours;
Slowly grows my Lego world
of bricks, so quickly broken.

Like lost reflections
fade into the depths of their
mirrored images,
shadows of misconceptions
grow to overwhelm their light.
(Inspired by #ShapePoetry prompt ‘Faded Memories’)

I love words; both reading and writing them. I've started this site in order to have a depository for all the random ramblings which are continually swirling around my mind. Some of the aforementioned ramblings may be quite serious but the majority probably won't be. I'm a single mother living in Norwich. I'm also autistic. This isn't the defining component of my personality, although it is a significant one, and one which I think has a heavy influence on my writing, which is why I choose to highlight it. I also feel no shame over being autistic and refuse to perceive it as a disability. The way I see it, life is hard work whichever way your brain is wired up. Aside from all things wordy, I also love music. I find it to be an incredible mood enhancer, as well as a great enabler for the imagination. I love all kinds of music, though hard house in particular - as everything in life is better when it's hard... I hope you enjoy my musings and thank you for reading!
