Life’s Flutters

All the locks in the skyGloss my lips to a pompous shineThe debris in mauve heart voids Is of timid lights in life Silken sheen’s dance on rustSequins sewn into heavy crustsSlippery slope’s thrills of a sledGlasses in the traces of dread Summer sun rains bright goldCrowning the fall in blithe hopeThe threshold’s eternal mayMy springContinue reading “Life’s Flutters”

The Shroud

With green as pale as apples, the leaves curl into the buoyant treeProfiles of certaintyInvoking a deityGolden promises and purple faith carried away on a butterfly’s wingsRest at a honey pit covered in tatters, deeper than rough waters.Starry eyes spiral down the crescent time’s slow decrownOn the back of a moth flying the blotchesTo theContinue reading “The Shroud”

The Seaside

I breathe in the sun of the seaside and kiss the sheen on the waters for the last time I came is still bitter, like the stench of old perfume.The seaside had whispered eternity, haunting me with captivity so I sailed through the clouds just to set foot on firm lands.Now I run and viewContinue reading “The Seaside”

The Truth

The Truth Inner beauty doesn’t recede with the sands of timeBut yours didn’t show the difference between hearts and housesYour ruby mouth and coal eyes were a sight to beholdNow held too long, they’re burning me in a pyre of blood and ashes Change Never have I seen you in the faceAdmitting to the poisonContinue reading “The Truth”

The Tent

I’m seeking shelter in the tentWoven from hanks of chaosThat tours the heaven now Bathed in its sheen The cloth ripples my cutsEnfolding me in solaceOf blurred balance and spaceUntil my legs nudge the corners. In the darkness devoid of shadows To haunt me with lies and truthsI float between them in symphoniesStrung with memories out ofContinue reading “The Tent”

Winds

My winds are embedded down in the earth Whispering remorse for having failedIn dwindling the vast ocean That I steadily trickled out of hurt Till it flew beyond my clutchesAllying with birds faraway in motionOut of my sight and into the skyWith heaps of wayward emotionsThat are too untamed to lie Life is a bed of rosesBecause everyContinue reading “Winds”

Solitude

Clusters of jewels in the night’s mine,Banishes the steady gloom of the sky.But the lone white pearl’s splendid shine,Altogether makes the darkness fly. A picturesque wood with thick greens about,May stir the soul with supreme glee.Yet a separate tree doubtlessly gives out,Complete beauty to feel and see. The prodigious blue of our shared realm,Reveal theContinue reading “Solitude”

Carpet

I was once a most prepossessing sight,Blue, velvet and artistically designed.The crowd professed their deepest wishesTo have me claimed, kept, washed and dusted!Oh, I was acquired tout de suiteBy a zealous merchant who somehow knew,To ceremoniously sell me to an imposing king.How I was treated with magnificent pride!I was acclaimed, commended and immensely boasted.But timeContinue reading “Carpet”

The Dreams

I ventured into lands unknownWeaving some dreams of goldI believed its light shoneIn the darkest paths of lone I entwined the thin threadsNot leaving a strand astrayBut I tore my life to shredsLeading me to lie and betray I played a game with fireWon dark smouldering holesI had ashen threads to rewire Into a shadow ofContinue reading “The Dreams”

Memories

Memories upending over my soulBurning like acid as they touch the floorBlinking away like camera flashes While capturing my heart’s core Held prisoner in a wave of sadnessAs moments flow and caressThe shore of eternity Only to fade and flee Vanishing into an abyssReturning to taunt with a glimpseGrasping emotions in a blink of an eyeStranding millionsContinue reading “Memories”

You and me forever

God may have bound me to you for eternity But he had devastatingly chosen wrongly For I knew from the first our rope would be cut You feel so alien, so foreign under my skinBut I have to try and understand your termsFor we both know the truth that can’t be shut ‘Cause it’s you andContinue reading “You and me forever”

The world goes

Salty scents brim the air Cold wind seeps in everywhere  But cold to warm, the world goes Melting emotions once froze  Frothy waves dance on the shore To the music inside the heart’s core But music to noise, the world goes Seagulls screech out all my foes Pretty shells colour the lands Holding on toContinue reading “The world goes”

To my sister

You’ve always been with me since my life began, Paving my way with love and care, You’re my pillar of support, a guiding star Brightening my path with your steady light. We’ll always be together wherever we are Because we’re tethered to each other, With a bond knotted so tight, That it can’t be brokenContinue reading “To my sister”

Rainstorm

When a heavy rainstorm brews within  Threatening to release, burst and win Unleash it all for it’ll eventually cease To again restore an abode of peace When the rain of tears hits the ground  Drenching the tranquil mind with sound  Don’t you forget that It’ll unfailingly dry  Becoming an echo of time elapsed by WhenContinue reading “Rainstorm”
