YouLife is illusionYou by DanielleDestiny
Consciousness a dream.
Thought is an abstract
What does it mean?
Perception isn’t perfect
The norm is a lie.
Stereos have no type
Ask yourself why?
Opinion isn’t fact
Knowledge isn’t truth.
If you know different
Then show me the proof.
We are different people
Depending who we meet.
So many faces for the world
All stuck on repeat.
Imagine if, for one day
We were who we really are.
That hate and fear did not exist
And understanding raised the bar.
Would it be such an evil
To simply be you?
Let others not rule your life
And, to yourself, always be true.
Ageing UngracefullyThey say beauty is in the eye of the beholderAgeing Ungracefully by DanielleDestiny
Things seem prettier as I get older
It’s funny how little I noticed, when I was young
How so much I thought was right, turned out to be wrong
Strange that a year seems shorter than I remember
Turn your back on January, and it’s already December
Moments are more precious, with each day I lose
Rash actions of youth, giving way to quiet muse
I used to be brave, not too long ago
But now I get scared, the more that I know
Youth was all energy, without being wise
When you get older, you just philosophise
Once I could run and play forever
These days I just moan about the weather
At one time I’d take on all in my wake
Now, when I move, my body aches
You’d think all this would get me down
And, yeah, I do sometimes wear a frown
But life’s too short to play the miser
Better to get on with doing something wiser
Ditch the excuses and have some fun
Show these kids just how it’s done
Live each minute that’s in the
AgainFeet fall soft on concrete groundAgain by DanielleDestiny
Worn out shoes make no sound
Feel so trapped, but I’m not bound
I’m walking on my own again.
Midnight air cold on the chest
Muscles ache and beg for rest
For this life, I have no zest
I’m hiding from myself again.
People stare as I walk by
They laugh and joke, but I just sigh
Want to just break down and cry
I’m falling down that hole again.
Someone tell me why I’m here?
Please explain all that I fear?
Oh god who can make it clear?
Don’t want to walk alone again.
So many times I’ve walked this road
For my sins my youth was sold
This pavement has a stranglehold
I’m knocking myself down again.
The rain it comes and soaks my skin
Drowns the spirit that dwells within
I always lose, I just can’t win
I’m staring at the void again.
But with the dawn she’ll come to me
Reveal the truths I failed to see
The darkness becomes a memory
I’m heading back home again.
She tells me that she is here.
SpaceI took a walk amongst the stars,Space by DanielleDestiny
Danced around Jupiter, waltzed with Mars.
Wandered through the shrouded night,
Bathed in the glowing sunshine light.
Amazed I dwelt with Dwarfs red and white,
Felt the pull of Black Hole's frightening might.
But though I was stunned by this magical view,
Nothing, my love, compares to the wonder of you.

Deathbed- a dream by Angus Stewart, laid to rest in Prose
Bubbles of jellylike trapped air rose upwards through the pool's cyan water. Before his eyes and all about him they climbed as he pushed/glided by cumbersome underwater breaststrokes toward the tiled edge. Here he hoped to clamber up the side and out of the pool. He did not really know why he wanted to do this- nor did he know how long he had been swimming, or how he had got there. It didn't feel important. Maybe he had swum until his paid session was over and it was time to leave, or until he was too shrivelled to continue. Maybe he had stayed underwater until his eyes stung unbearably. Maybe he had appeared out of thin air.
His biceps and triceps squashed and tightened as he tried to pull his lank bodyweight over the pool edge onto the dry tiles. Less easy than perhaps it might once have been. W
