This Mind

The Haunted Wordsmith Opposites Attract Challenge #16

For this challenge, I provide one word and a list of its antonyms. The challenge is to use the prompt word AND one (or more) of its antonyms in some form of writing (or creative work). 

Today’s word: crowded

Antonyms: bare, blank, devoid, empty, stark, vacant, void

Oh this mind…crowded

with so many thoughts

some that are welcome

and others that are not

~ * ~

The ones that are welcome here

bare my soul without any fear

a few of the thoughts can sometimes

leave me devoid of joy

~ * ~

Once in awhile I can blank out

on a precious thought

I so desperately wanted to keep

leaving a brokenness to weep

~ * ~

Then there are some

painful memories of the past

can leave an empty feeling on

what never came to pass

~ * ~

Remembrance of a time or two

when it felt like this soul

had almost been destroyed

these are the ones difficult to void

~ * ~

But all in all,

when it comes down to it

each and every thought,

memory, and remembrance is…

~ * ~

An exquisite rose with thorns

that His love will always adorn

with a crown of beauty

beholding Wisdom’s jewels

~ * ~

This, can only be gifted

through each step we take

of our spiritual pilgrimage

towards Eternity’s Gate.

~ * ~
