Audax

A Mutual Paradox


Notice of absence from Audax
Hey y’all, I’ll be taking a break from writing and going away for a while to focus on other things at the moment. Stay blessed, spend time with your loved ones, and continue expressing your creativity! I’ll be back in due time to publish more of my work and to read some more of your’s. Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year’s to all of you! Stay safe, stay healthy, and stay strong! Take care!

Healing from the wounds of yesterday,

I can only fathom with the disgrace,

Of the lies you spat on my face,

Even if tomorrow loves today!

 

Like a wolf hunting in the night,

I can only let our time fade to dust,

While I give in to my hunger and lust,

Even if the darkness appreciates the light!

 

Wishing for these memories to die,

I can only bottle up the shame,

Of my heart being carved in your name,

Even if a truth becomes a lie!

 

As these feelings grow cold and silent,

I can only walk through this devastation,

That let left me shaking in temptation,

Even if indiscretion knows how to be prudent!

 

Thinking like an enigma,

I can only start contemplating,

The things you weren’t saying,

Even if honor admires a stigma!

 

Faced with so much anxiety,

I can only beg and hope,

For someone to throw me a rope,

Even if betrayal praises loyalty!

 

Realizing that the past has been set in stone,

I can only wonder what the future can bring,

To a soul that has nothing to cling,

Even if camaraderie seeks to be alone!

 

Jaded by words that cut like a knife,

I can only run on a single thread,

Where conversations are left for dead,

Even if death cherishes life!

 

Knowing that my affection will never cease,

I can only fight against the pain,

From which moments are thrown in bane,

Even if violence lingers onto peace!

    Ah be at peace,these feelings will pass. Turn a negative to a positive. Take from a failed relationship, only the positives it brought to you. Only the good things you enjoyed. For harbouring negatives will drag you down and only lead you to a fight within yourself when you finally have to confront them and caste them off at a later time. Take a look at my latest post 26th july as an example of remembering a failed relationship with positives. Leave me a coment if u will.

    However having written all this, I doubt that you are solely as negative as your well penned piece would have your reader believe.

    Enjoyed reading your post.

      Turn a negative into a positive? Fuck, wise advice. If only it was as easy as you've made it sound DUSK ARISING. I'm lmao all the way to HELL, but I'm gonna try and take this advice. I need it.

          Thank you Andy! As always, I appreciate your comments on any poems that I write! I always try to write something that carries a lot of emotion and can evoke a sense of empathy for anyone whose feelings have been tapped by the words I say! Most recently, I’ve spoken to friends and people who have been dealing with anxious and questioning themselves, so I figured, why not write something that touches on what they deal with to find it cathartic after reading it! Thank you once again and have a blessed day! Always speak your heart out!

          Good write Audax.

          Your own comments Audax outline the compassionate reason for writing this paradox and for those who are sunk in unexpressed emotions it will surely give food for thought - - a fine and worthy piece of work.

          • Audax

            Thank you! I put in so much into making all my poems, so I aim to put so much emotion and feeling to them!

          • M.E.M.

            It’s been a while since I’ve read poetry, and long poems for that matter. I REALLY liked this poem. Personally, I don’t like writing in rhyme, but I do love reading it. This is next level rhyming poetry.

            • Audax

              No worries. Everyone is allowed to write in whatever style they want. Thank you for your praises!

              The words you used were so brilliantly conveyed that it clearly put me in the feels:

              "Wishing for these memories to die,

              I can only bottle up the shame,

              Of my heart being carved in your name,

              Even if a truth becomes a lie!"

              • Audax

                Thank you so much for you comment and feedback! I truly appreciate it! Let the world hear your words!

              • scarlet poet

                I love this so much! It has so much meaning to it and I can definitely relate. I feel lost sometimes too and this portrays it perfectly. It’s like it’s right in front of your face and you can see every detail but can’t explain it. I love the part where it says “even if tomorrow loves today!” That speaks power. Thank you for sharing, favorited!

                • Audax

                  Glad to know that this poem spoke volumes to you! Thank you for favoriting it. Have a blessed day! 🙏
