Do You Want To Be My Valentine?

Love can be two-faced— Bringing joy and then pain, A dangerous ride for your emotions— Leaving you in bliss or in shame. False love will make rivers flow, Leaving you to drown in sorrow— Feeling tormented— Like you’ve never been before. But because my desire is bold, It is prideful and overbearing, It consumes me with its intensity, That I cannot turn away. For love can heal and mend, And make you whole again, Make you happy; make you smile— As wide as the universe. But is that enough, For you—to want—to hold on, Or is the pain I’m sharing, Too much for you to bare? By: ElRoyPoet © 2024 LOVE ..read more

Valentine’s Day Delusion

Love can be dangerous— It can be hurtful and cruel. And because my desire is bold— It’s also prideful and overbearing. Love can make you cry, And feel tormented— Like you’ve never been before. Love can make you happy— Make you smile, As wide as the universe. But is that enough, For you—to want—to hold on, Or is the pain I’m inflicting, Too much for you to bare? By: ElRoyPoet © 2020 Is This Your Reality? Commentary: All is not fair in love and war; we all need somebody to love. But if the object of your affection is no longer willing to be lovable, you cannot say that she broke your heart. Bec ..read more

Alternative Realities

My reality is someone else’s ‘fantasy’, And somebody else’s truth, Is merely a ‘prejudice’. My stories are sometimes happy, But other times—melancholy, And I feel guilty, Because I thought about it. But I don’t sing sad songs, I tell cautionary tales, And if they’re contrary, It wasn’t my intention, To make matters worse for anybody. For nobody likes to be told: “I told you so!”, Especially when it’s too late, To turn the bus back around, While you succumb— To your companions’ dejection. Spanish Translation Mi realidad es la “fantasía” de otra persona, Y la verdad de alguien más, Es solamente ..read more

A Tale of 2 Democracies: Liberal versus Illiberal
ElRoyPoet
by ElRoyPoet
2w ago
Once upon a time, in a country known as Democracyland, there lived two neighboring communities: Libertyville and Securitytown. These communities had different government policies when it came to borders and civil rights, making them quite distinct from one another. In Libertyville, the citizens valued individual freedoms and diversity above all else. They believed in welcoming newcomers with open arms, providing asylum to those in need, and promoting the idea that everyone, regardless of their background, deserved a chance to thrive. The borders of Libertyville were porous, allowing people to ..read more

Republicans don’t want to secure the border, they want to close the border!

The southern border is not “being invaded”. There’s not a military enemy swimming across the Rio Grande. Citizens, why do you frame humans as illegal migrants? When all they’re seeking is “humanitarian parole.” Installing razor wire is not a state’s “right of self-defense”. It’s a “crime against humanity” don’t you also bleed, when you’re cut? The asylum law doesn’t condone cruelty to refugees. Nobody has the legal right to denigrate immigrants. Republicans complain about the border crisis, but when Senator Lankford negotiated a bill with the Democrats, MAGA Republicans threw him under the bus ..read more

A Conflicted Heart

There’s love, and then there’s reverse love. Either way, your heart finds joy or a deviant purpose for its existence. If you love a group of people, there will always be somebody for you to feel empathy for, to sympathize with, to care for. If you go the other way, there will always be someone for you to be disgusted with, to hold in contempt, for you to fear. If you pursue the object of your affection, your heart will find contentment. If you hound the object of your disgust, your heart won’t rest until the last one is found. Then, what is your heart going to do? Is it going to tell on itself ..read more

How Fear Mongering and Fake Promises influence Voters

In the face of propaganda, be wary and wise, schemes that profit, state actors will disguise. Modern charlatans, manipulating with skill, using media, false equivalences will instill. Our emotional instincts, no match for this deceit, repeating blatant lies, brings societal defeat. Your money and dignity, both are at stake, casinos and lotteries are both on the take. When Trump asked, “What the hell do have to lose?”— it’s obvious your sovereignty, he wanted to abuse. A casino operator, gambles with your wealth, an authoritarian—with your liberty’s health.

Free Speech Propagandist

In the shadows, an angry mob awaits, with an evil intent, bigots and neo-fascists, with a message of dissent. Seeking to desensitize, and numb the feeble mind, by spreading fear and hatred, to all of mankind. Protesting and parading, they hide behind a mask, trying to normalize their presence, is a traitor’s task. And with a lie of tolerance, democracy they ensnare, an unlawful infiltration; an occupation—everyone beware! Their incendiary rhetoric—a time bomb surely to ignite— inciting cynicism, with every word they speak and write. Acts of treason they inflict, against a weary population, the ..read more

2024: New Year’s Resolution

2M ago
In order to ‘take a leap forward’, I must acknowledge that I have a past; A history of stumbles and regrets. In order to ‘be born again’, I need to accept that I was ‘dead in sin’, A lost soul needing redemption. It takes courage to change, To face the mirror and say you’re wrong, That your life’s stagnant; going nowhere. You must admit that you’re a fraud, Just trying to ‘keep up appearances’; Painting smiles and wearing deception. We need to progress from history, Grateful for the ordeals we’ve endured; Embracing the lessons we’ve learned. We must repent and seek forgiveness, For the hardshi ..read more
