Smooth Seas and Safe Harbours.

Adrift in a ocean of denial,
The unknown is a scary place.
It’s funny you know, the way that simple greeting has you smiling,
After all it’s just a statement of the obvious.
Still waters run deep they say,
The currents care not for your comfort.
For you could exist in the harbour forever,
But you would not live for a day.
The disjointed phrasing is inescapable,
Thoughts fly around this head too rapidly to comprehend.
Much like the butterflies in your stomach you’d never admit to.
It’s everything and nothing,all at once.
But a smooth sea never made a skillful sailor,
And I’m here to enjoy the ride.
How could I not?
These words make my soul smile.

The Fourth Secret:Brilliance and Denial.

Carbon,under pressure,turned to a brilliant gem,
The black coal is just another Rock.
The transformation begins within,
the soul has a darkness no one can be rid of.
Denial would rot the heart,brilliance is on the surface,deceptive.
Rip it to shreds with your bare hands,
scratch the surface till you bleed.
Bright red,the blood will drip,marring the pristine white marble below.
Try as you might,the roots are intertwined,
it would kill you a million times before you die.
The Brilliance lies in deception,
Denial is Schrödinger’s  cat,it’ll come and go at will,
The tired heart will sigh.
Even a seraphim would succumb to such human fallacy.

Inspired by Beethoven’s 5 secrets:Part 4.
The fourth secret is to make mistakes,if nothing else it’ll make a good story.
What’s the saying- ‘It’s a risk to love,what if it doesn’t work out?..Ah,but what if it does?’
PS. If you know it’s extremely stupid,don’t do it just for the kicks,You’ll screw it up yourself.
