Inflated egos float up
to the summit with fates
cradled in each hand to
decide whether we peak
or plummet.

and after I came, I looked into the ceiling light: all I could see was the sun
I looked into the sun, I was taken for a ride
My eyes went everywhere
my sight blurred and all I could see
where shadows of ground and light before it came
My cheeks flushed
hard smell of salt and sweat
perhaps, even something sweet, a hint of saccharine, too
I am glued together,
glued to the top of the bed, the mattress could’ve used a little extra room anyway
I hit my peak when the sun was it’s peak today,
I hear your high-afternoon speaking in my ears;
I feel your August noon summer slowly rocking me along the waves of personal streams from my passageways

Standing alone
Above the trees
There are others around her
But none can be

The masses they swarm
And crawl to ascend
Bruises form
Limbs shall bend

Summit they will
And conquer they must
They have fallen ill
Bestowed with wanderlust

They are mostly strong
All think they conquer
But the best have known long
Lady nature is stronger

take me to the nearest mountain.
i’ll bring snacks, the blanket,
you’ll bring you and a map.

we’ll sit and eat snacks under the stars,
all until the floods make us chew
with our mouths closed
i’m in a weird mood tonight idk i’m kinda in love with the moon and the color green so i’m gonna roll w it

I see no difference.

All the feelings beat the same rhythm
Heartbeats caught well on machine.

Time has prospered
everything is different
I feel all the same.

Opportunities
New avenues
World is at reach
Our stories all sneak
With touch and flick.

advancement in nooks and corner
But problems are growing
ever increasing
the time does not feel any longer.

Every stitch at nine
Life not working as design
It is getting harder to breathe
All the pollution at its peak
Everything is toxic.

With my inward eye
I saw the light
When darkness was
My only companion.
From behind my lashes
I stepped a little
With dreams to
Achieve.
Clothes humid
Like my mortal
Heart held me
When I was broken.
But people forget
The shattered mortals
Can be united not
The broken ones
With weights of all
Gone faiths, I walked.
Though I didn't reach
The summit yet
I saw the peak

The Peak of Success

The reason
My professor loved me
So much,
I thought there was
Something to be known.
When I asked him
To give its account,
He smiled and
Had something nice
To be shown.
He opened his diary then,
Some lines he sought.
Once you'd opined,
he said then,
It was the great thought
On the peak of success
(in your mind).
He continued his talk
And told the rest,
It shouldn't be having
The tip and cliff
Or that of the Everest.
A question you'd raised,
What if it is
The Table Mountain
And its land?
You meant, its crest,
Where everyone
Could stand.

why i want to reach this state of life?
i spend my time
my effort
my attention
body and soul
and heart
just to reach this peak
but why?
what is the real purpose of all of this?
did i just chase an empty dream?
everyone congratulate me
but i feel nothing at all
nothing at all
One of my class in philosophy
a sultry day ends,
hot, swift wind moves the tired leaves;
early moon looks on!
