Don't Be Afraid
it is as real as
is in optimism;
thirteen is a scare if there
is cognitive dissonance....

In every embrace
We find a home, cities dread
Modern dissonance
Of ice cubes clinking
In the nodding head...

Cognitive Dissonance
it's like having a
foreign object embedded
in an orifice
that it wasn't meant to be 
in, but it fits really snug....

When is not zero
merely negative chaotic dissonance?

So then,
why is not(not)
positively regenerative MidWay confluence?...

Meeting, toast, and air conditioner. 
The jazz background dissonance.
Phosphorescent drinks in crystal cup,
Holding all virtual life inside it.

Premium Member quiet at the boarder tonight
So imagine
A death ray
That turns
Troops to paste
Or makes the
Atoms in their
Body explode
Hmm dissonance
And quiet at 
The border tonight

and curdle
into ripened, 
red embolisms
of vulgar syllables
that dam fresh inspiration
with futile, vagrant dissonance.
I diagnose my swollen fingers
as unfortunate strokes of distraction.

restless heart in need of flight
the time is drawing near
future bliss within his sight
in the present lives his fear

what he has and what he needs
inhabit different pages
conscience shamed by guilty deeds
such sin has costly wages

You called just to say
You’ve had enough of me
Distracted with thoughts irrelevant
Sitting in dissonance
And starry eyed innocence
My heart died
It fell into the hands of Nyx
And thrown into the river Styx.

Cable Bay
the sky is a thousand hues
of the same colour, one painting /\
splayed twice, yielding /\/\
an invisible dissonance
between the pointed rooves
of suburbia [/\/\]

On a painting of two black triangles by Agnes Martin...

Sensual Sentiment
Subtle kisses in the dark 
Can you see me?
Soft and gentle embraces without uttering a single word
Do you feel me?
My presence has left me and stumbled upon you
Anxiousness causes heart throbs of dissonance 
Do you love me? 
Lip biting has become inevitable

Trying to Get It: Whatever that Means
The abrupt dissonance caused a mental breakdown 
Father was never in his life
The streets played the role of caretaker 
Homelessness became his ultimate attire 
Often, a square peg in a round whole 
The grinding lead to a friction like no other 
Bottom is reality, top is but a dream

Cognitive Dissonance
The daily slideshow
'Editor's Pick'
shows drunken revelers
high on an orgy
of celebration
interspersed with 
in war zones
and a man who killed because -
'Get out of my country'
a hate crime
the slow scroll of images
presented in a microcosm
of the world today
no wonder the refugees
look confused

unforgiving dissonance
fiddling with my
violin i can also
fiddle with my
viola in an
almost spastic
stance with head and

chin in an almost
accident rubbernecking
the accident which
has not not
only yet to

begin but will
forgetting to
rosen my bow
now knowing

what the
of tires sounds
like played in
B flat major...

this familiar tune
sounds so weird

merry go round?
this thing    off by itself

every full time round
this odd face

choo choo whistles
frightening dissonance

off by itself
timeless riders

out of time
distant coaster rumbles

different time
different place

Formed from duplicity and hypocrisy;
A falsehood foundation for democracy.

Cognitive dissonance spurred into minds;
Attitudes, beliefs, and behavior blinds.

Exposed conflicting ideas and emotions;
While fabricating illogical devotions.

Psychiatry claim to prevent, but obstruct;
As an inhuman money making construct.

Premium Member Two Hearts
Two hearts were called,
Amidst the cacophony of life,
Amidst the fruitfulness of life.
Evolving from timelessness,
Moving in the center of existence.

Now each finds in the calling,
Beyond the restrictions of space,
An ever more central reality,
An ever more expanding reality,
Sensing even through dissonance,
Home, in its ever-pulsing joy.

Beings of Imagination
Beings in Imagination 
By Mark Miller 
Brazen colors dance suspended, 
Over time's delay of existence. 
Frozen stills by photographs gravitate 
By a grounded descent in cognitive dissonance. 
Emotions explored yet unexamined. 
Sentry ghost crawls through holes silent facticity 
Thrown down the relative subjective 
As our pendulum stands over the meek blue of blind devotion....

Cognitive Dissonance
Torn betwixt a world I’ve known and a world I am yet to know,
the emotions rush in… intense and suffocating.
hope is lost, consequences I sow, 
devoid of any sense, any kind of understanding…

I am abandoned by the life that I’ve lived, 
betrayed by my own actions, by my own thoughts.
no more insights to impart, no more lessons to give,
I am, but subjugated, in this war that I’ve fought....

Reliant on a songbird with minimal talents 
One note, one song to showcase its voice 
Auditions are lenient and brisk 
Sing the song that I love to hear 
Repetition is more than the mother to learning,
She is the key to my satisfaction 
Temporarily, songbird, hit your high note 
Dissonance to my ears and equilibrium,
But the rhythm behind the beat of my drum stick 
Oh song bird, sing my song...

Disorderly Conduct
Quiet on the set, you annoying disrupter
Your carrying on is causing unproductivity
The well oiled machine has lost its lubricant 
A clog in the artery of consistsncy, you block blessings
With so many distracted minds, you are not needed 
One cannot paint if one cannot focus 
Move your self from the assembly line 
Disrupt those who yearn to hear your dissonance 
For this tune, plays perfectly fine without you...

From his voice springs the tenderest sound of lute
There is not a moment
In the company of my little cherubim
Oh how I love him, how I love him!
Dissonance played in my core.
Before his birth 
My first born.
Our pride and Joy.
The cold of winter is all but gone, gone, gone!
Even your sulkiness embalms my soul.
You and your sister bring the most
Joy joy joy!
 To our household.
* to my little boy

Premium Member A Rattling Tongue
A Rattling Tongue Written: by Tom Wright January 2015 Space invasion, Non extraterrestrial kind, But by harshness Of a rattling tongue; Birthing words of no concern, Taking title to my space, As if by Eminent Domain; Tranquility is subdued, When dissonance occupies; A situation not improving, Use of my personal space: The most remote thing from our minds, Are often closest to God’s heart Tom
