The Calm.


I hate the calm.

Calmness can be broken,
at any time.
And I don’t like,
when things break.

I hate the calm.

You know,
the calm before a storm.
The waiting and
deceitful sense of security.

I have never been,
the best with calm,
I have only ever been,
the worst.

The clock ticking,
to dreadful silence,
expecting an explosion,
to pierce it with each tick.

I really hate,
the calm,
the calm,
the calm.

To sit and wait for,
the storm,
the storm,
the storm.

It’s coming.
It’s coming.

About the poem:

Just a little something my mind wouldn’t shut up about while trying to get some sleep tonight. I’m split about the meaning though. On one hand this has some meaning for me and my personal life and the direction I’m headed, on the other hand however I’m just wondering about how much more the world can take before the “storm” actually hits all of us. There are SO many things going on in different parts of the world and there is only so much a cup can take before it spills. What I want to say here is, that I really hate having the feeling that things are only going to get worse in the near future..

Let’s be brave and face whatever the future holds together.

Be well,

Prospermind. πŸ™‚

  1. Aww! The calm or peace another word is what you make it and also how you handle the ruckus when it is thrown at you. For me I just wander. Be well my friend

  2. I really love how you play with the words and the repetition. To think that a single tick could provoke anand explosion is scary and yet, I could relate to it. Nicely written πŸ™‚

  4. I have the same feeling, and then remember that we should always try to look on the bright side of life, so I choose to focus on something more positive instead. Or at least try to. πŸ˜‰

    I’m with you though. Hugs!

  5. Okay .You just awoke a perception in my consciousness ;my own fear of the soul destroying process of being calm whilst the expectation of devastation lingers .I feel that this applies to humanity .I also feel that there will always be devastation because of the chaotic realm in which we reside .I love your mind .for the love of the universe ;never stop writing.
