Phosphor Ethic Alkali

existence ripped from tight-held palm,
the minutiae of day-facing glances
flash infinities unbearably intricate
in the throes of living embalmment.

harangued by paranoiac-critical bliss,
edged over an artifice distended
to promulgate a tormentuous absence
in the never-ending moment.

stale promises of pleasure unearned,
akashic palace of shadow-puppetry
whose cheshire grin, a fissure sombre
swallows me wormhole of Kali.

A terrifying vision of corruption and despair.
Lives wasted in daily monotony that push us away from higher contemplation:

flash infinities unbearably intricate
in the throes of living embalmment.

We have been preserved from physical decay while we rot spiritually.

We are encourage to bury criticism in the blissful promise of peaceful existence that ends up devouring us into utter absence or nonexistence. Who are we to this world if we cannot express ourselves? What do we mean for a world we are taught not to interact with? Not to disturb.

We have been swallowed whole by earthly promises of pleasures on end and a shallow promise of heavenly bliss that can be earned with a last-minute apology (vis-a-vis, Papal mea culpas).
Who pulls the strings of this puppetry?
Is there a way out of Kali's wormhole?

Poetry inspired by the images that constitute the perfect framework to externalize thoughts that wallow in the harsh reality, which can be chaotic, if we neglect, which forces us to face it with all available weapons. We are born with clenched fists, as a kind of preparation to become. The divine spark insufflates us from the value required to live life, we decide with each action the direction, the meaning of that chosen life. The choice of light to transport around the world is ours, its brightness will depend on how much integrity and commitment is developed.

Hello my lovely friend :]

wow.. I hope you remember me from months ago!! It has been well overdue that I start writing again!...
wow..wow I keep saying when I see how well you are doing here now, so happy for you! ...


what a pleasant surprise!

and let me say.. I see your words are, as ever, like those that have passed here from another realm!
❤️

@d-pend,

Daniel ... I take you had a bad day. I re-read the poem a couple of times. Sheesh. Swallowed up by the Goddess of Death and Doom. Reminds me of my divorce.

The ex has a tongue like that too:-)

@d-pend You're a stunning friend. I love how you describe through your stanzas the excellent works of art you use. So much magic in every stanza, dear friend. It's always a pleasure to enjoy your wonderful poetry. Have a beautiful Sunday.

Hey, thanks so much for the note @msp-creativebot! <3 I really appreciate it and hope your day is awesome as well :-D

Very rich words and they sure are very utterly gorgeous artworks one of a kind and they are each beautiful than the other :)

Oh My Goodness what an amazing choice of Art and the selection of the words is seriously above the standard. Superb lines you have written Bro @d-pend

stale promises of pleasure unearned,
akashic palace of shadow-puppetry
whose cheshire grin, a fissure sombre
swallows me wormhole of Kali.

Keep motivating us with your brilliant writings <3

Hey @salmanbukhari54 I appreciate that! This art caught my eye as I had a few friends that used to draw in a similar style back in high school. I made a few too, though not so intricate as these! Have an awesome day and keep writing yourself :-D

"harangued by paranoiac-critical bliss". That line is really complex. Kept me thinking for a while!

To be honest, I go months without using bots of any sort. Then sometimes I delve back in, for fun I suppose you could say, for promotion, or for research. One thing is unwavering - these bot comments are unsightly, though I don't flag them.

Not to mention your bot actually encourages people to purchase reversals: a strange business model. It would be better to have this information displayed on an external website, in my opinion. Notice many bots have deactivated comments. I'd recommend all bot owners to follow suit. It comes off as spam.

True... But, it’s also a form of transparency— letting people know that a post has been artificially propped up, and that votes have been purchased.

·

Yeah, I'm fine with that. In fact, I kind of liked the transparency bot project before it got shut down. But people can easily click to see the vote among the list of voters. (And on Busy/Steempeak, see the value of the vote right there.) Another thing is that the message isn't really that helpful - "14.65% vote" still forces people to do research to determine what the actual value was. I'd like it more if there was an estimated STEEM/SBD/USD value in the bot comment so it was actually useful to people.

I don’t know that most people are savvy or have time to click on list of voters to see if bots are involved.

Estimated value in comments is, actually, a good idea and even more transparent. But, seeing that more than one bot was used, in the comment section, also helps readers to understand that a post is not performing successfully merely on its own merits...

I want to know how to make this picture? very impressed to me

I'm pretty sure the first and third images are created with black pen on paper. The second appears to be mixed media of pen and watercolor. You can browse the artist's digital gallery for lots of other pieces!

Thank you for the information I will visit, and glad to meet you

promises that are not fulfilled are just the forerunner of jokes while artificial intelligence is the origin of happiness that is not natural make relative
