Reblog – Gradations of reality by Sadje

Sadje shares multiple truths in this piece. Enjoy! 🙂

Keep it alive

Argue all you want, you cannot argue against reality

There are shades and hues of it, all true

Sometimes there is a preview available, but often

It strikes us unaware and catches us unprepared

If we mistake one angle of the story for absolute truth

We often lose our focus away from the real picture

The gradations of real life have to be watched as a whole

My world needs me to be aware of every nuance

The danger of living in the valley of make-believe

Can take me away from the advantage point

Ending up as a loser instead of being on the top

Reblog – IN MY HEAD by OTIALA ONAH DAVID

The fantasy is always better than reality, right?

HUMEPOETS

I have devoured
you countless
times,
striped you bare
with my eyes,
tasting pleasure
as I choreograph
in my head,
but agony
was our reality,
sour taste,
revulsion,
however brief
it lasted,
I guess,
I fell
for the
version in
my imagination,
the you
that does
not exist.

sometimes
tuning out
into the make-believe
the stories of others
forsakes the tragedy
of our own

soothes our reality

often
the conversations
in our heads
skews our perception
alters
the substantiality

changes our reality

mostly
engaging with people
immersing ourselves
in nature
grounds us
makes our world whole

defines our reality

Reena’s Exploration Challenge 3/21/19

 Facets previously posted 3/15/18. I present it again, revised, as it felt amazing interlaced with the prompts. Enjoy!

It’s all in the details.
Pigments

Dive deeper into them.
Hues

Experience emotions as they emerge in the minutiae.
Tinges

Everything is everything.
Colors

Transitioning from the unknown to a depth of understanding.
Stains

It holds our attention exquisitely, satisfactorily.

The layers of our life enrich our manifestation.

Then a million facets of experience, intensity, enjoyment just over
in a moment…

of sadness.
of heartbreak.
of loneliness.
of devastation.
of hardship.
of cruelty.

We think it’s over.

Till we begin again.
If we begin again.

Life – It’s all in the details.
It’s all chroma.
