Cognizance | My Journey to the Dark Side ~ Social Issues, Sorrys & Sappiness


My Journey to the Dark Side is a 5 Part Mini-Series featuring the poetry I have featured in that week’s corresponding YouTube video. If you’ve wanted to reread a poem I read, look no further :)

Cognizance

Bound together by chains and nails,
The last ditch efforts of super glue
Look at them
As basic hardware
Cogs and wheel spokes
Sustain binding contracts and forced commitment
The most minute of details
Soldered together from affections
The naked threads
Too tangled from being used to each other
Whether it’s the two children
Made to socialize or
The reluctant peers begrudgingly collaborating
Exchanged hatred or lovelorn glances
Make no difference
Time impresses upon the skin
Of who you wouldn't be otherwise
Maybe that’s why we can’t help but fall in love.

Prompt : Write a poem describing or somehow incorporating an old pocket watch.
