C's And Desist

Seriously, just stop

By The Dani WriterPublished about a month ago 1 min read

Crawl back to bed

Castle your relaxation with resolve on life’s chessboard for safekeeping

Cannot help if yesterday was

CRAP—Sucked to high heaven—left a sour taste

Create better today

Cast a wider net, do the ‘outrageous ask’ since you reside in a realm of endless possibilities

Causation, is not in your task folder, asking is, acceptance is

Cave in with this simple effort and once again you will be yesterday’s

Cannon fodder

Cautiousness has not served you

Could not be a better time to figuratively (and perhaps literally) kick ass

Cuz you NEED to come over to the darker side—not dark—just dark-ER

Close your eyes if it helps

Coexist between trepidation and raging curiosity and let the

Cosmos handle the minutiae

Clear out communiqués and the

Clinical appointment you didn’t wanna go to anyway

Cognizance over compliance

Compos mentis

Cocksure or better yet


Cleanse and

Cauterize along the way

Clipboard at the ready

Common denominators all

Canceled out for a

Catharsis of every

Carpe diem that ended up

Carbon-dated, and you…now a

Canopy removed…to reveal sacred seeds

Author's note:-

If a poet cannot throw together 'whackadoo' silliness for the heck of it once in a while, then perhaps something is truly amiss.

Poetry is a safe space to throw out anything and everything on a page and sometimes (or not) choose to share it. Doesn't mean that it happened to you (or didn't.) That it must be assessed or analyzed. Isn't necessarily a timeline or a fact sheet. It just is, and simply needed to be written.

I truly appreciate that you took the time to read my poem. Kindest of thanks!

    Yeah, get off you ass and do it. Although I may have trouble with the taking control of my mind part. It just does what it wants most times..
