wqueens7 I heard on the latest episode of •Invisibilia,• "Our Computers, Our Selves," that the internet's "approval" (likes, comments, etc.) is like a drug with psychological & physiological effects.
Now I know I need to go cold turkey and KICK!
I've been feelin,' or aware of, all of the time I've invested in screens, but now that I know I am getting "mind & mood altering" results the interweb becomes an 'addiction issue,' or mere drug.

wqueens7 #Semester #Sonnet•
Every semester
Into my life they come
Queens, villains & jesters
Learning & teaching some

Some for obligation
Most to improve their lives
Dreams of occupations
For common goals they strive

These personalities
Overwhelm defenses
They are casualties
Of life's consequences

These spring floods fertilize
Beauty unrealized

wqueens7 #Lust #Sonnet

The #externalization
To #women's physical forms
Of lust's motivations
Shows how crimes are truly born

Resenting our own desire
We vilify its triggers
As if we could remove fire
By hiding women's figures

This world of anxiety
Where our status is performed
Questions all propriety
And shows how we are deformed

Human decency's within
Society's norms are thin

I write to #silence/
Nagging #fears and doubts/
Validate #conscience/
Quiet hater's shouts/
My words celebrate/
Today's existence/
I will not berate/
Others' resistance/

Words are light as snow/
Gilding ev'rything/
Freezing what's below/
Always awaiting/

Truth's optimism/
Life's realism/

wqueens7 #Aging #Memories #Sonnet #7syl
Somewhere there's a harsh routine
Unrelenting work there screams
A young man toils recklessly
The world pays him thanklessly

This messenger delivers
To businesses work's slivers
Atomized parts of labor
Capitalism's daycare

Gossamer reality
Experienced squalidly:
An old man's remembrances
Are transformed to romances

Assembled in memory
Life's existence plenary

Unnoticed by we the participants
Perhaps because they're in the same venue
Routine makes ungrateful participants #poem
