tonight on https://dversepoets.com/2021/03/16/poetics-the-art-of-being-human/ we have been prompted by kimm881 to write a metphor poem starting with the line “This being humn is ” from the poem the guest house by romi.
This being human is an abyss.
We stare down our own,
Looking for the rocks at the bottom,
Finding just emptiness,
Filled with infinite blackness,
Even when seen rose tinted specs.
This being human is a void,
Full of raw emotion,
Love, hate, guilt, fear, greed etc. etc. etc
Shouting for attention,
Wanting and demanding closure,
As we toss them into darkness’s depth,
Before we follow to our end
Not knowing if we go to our end
or our own creation,
to this being human malarky.
