Default ODFFA's Antics & Oddities Thread

Hey!

This thread was inspired by how dead the Poetry Thread is, and the conflict between my desire to share poems and my guilt over spamming quiet threads with craploads of OD-stuff.

So I created a thread for that specific purpose! Welcome!

I'll be sharing all sorts. Mostly poems and musings. They won't all be dark, I promise And please don't be discouraged from sharing your own here, and/or sparking up a conversation.

Heh! I hope you will still feel the same about my very generous oversharing down the line. But your enthusiasm means a lot

Well, thank you for the support, fellow narcissist! I've always loved the title of yours.

Regret: A Monologue

Ego, please have mercy!
I was trying to ameliorate.
I know I did the opposite,
served only to exasperate.

The last memory we now have
is of my being overbearing,
is the shame of irritation caused,
is regret. I was too daring.

I was hoping to give one last gift,
a fond and grateful ending.
Instead, I made a fool of us.
Now to wounds we will be tending.


Subconscious, it is difficult.
I am shamed by your indulgence.
I was hesitant at this, the risk
of even one last kind divulgence.

Our forebears taught me to be harsh;
I am tempted there once more.
Though, you give me pause, for cruel rebuke
will not morale ensure.

We both must bear indignity.
We hang by the same tether.
I will swallow down the bitter blame
so we may take the blow together.

Looking back over the past and understanding the realities of my life as they currently stand, I realise this year will probably have some fresh hell in store.

So, this is my theme for 2018:

It's been a week and I've heard no peep from my former boss. So, I'm daring to become cautiously optimistic that I will now be left alone.

Thanks again for the advice and support, everyone! You guys are awesome

Default Basketful of Freedom

A basketful of freedom
hung heavy on her arm.
Laden only with care,
if lacking in charm.

“A red rose I bring
to ward off any guilt,
Goodwill and liberty
form the patches of this quilt.”

She laid it down gently
as she spoke these last words.
Then, a frustrated reply,
or had she misheard?

Meant only to free,
to bring joy and relief.
Yet with sorrow she’d conclude
that her gift had caused grief.

Regret came in waves
at its snappish behest:
“I have warned you before!
Let Time do the rest.”

Days merged into months
filled with one single prayer:
“Let my intentions be known
to have contained only care.”

Default Behemother

My name drips venomously from the tongue
That covertly cuts me down to size
My own mouth clamours, gasps for words
Too illusive to be verbalised

Her eyes examine haughtily
My essence, curled into a ball
Her bellowing words compress my soul
Invisible now, impossibly small

I ache to scream, but second-guess
And guess a third, a hundredth time
My doubts extend her callous grip
I sink into the pain as her hubris climbs

This creature -- never satisfied,
Never still, never appeased --
This inexorable nemesis
Would bring me daily to my knees

It seems I am nothing, she is all
The rising of the sun retells
I try to disabuse myself
But no logic this great sense dispels

Her voice is never far away
My own narrative to smother
In every stranger’s countenance
I see the face of Behemother
