Caramel Nightingale

Dearest caramel nightingale My thoughts are lost within your dark silky hair I sense a bit of lavender and jasmine So that my demons start to roam Through this dark red ichor of mine As red as those lips of strawberry If I would, I’d pro’ly lick the red off Before proceeding to adore your…

Screaming into the darkness

I’d prefer a full moon any day To those halflings in the sky every now and then Yes they shine, they really do But I guess its not always the light that counts Sometimes, it’s actually the darkness The contrast between the white and black of the night It’s the effect it leaves on a…

Life through a glass window

Tiny raindrops cascade down my glass window As the winds scatter the falling waters outside Trees shake in song The cold breeze sweeps across the street A squirrel runs in search of shelter; In the distance, lovers hold hands under an umbrella Unbothered by nature’s cries of joy Unbothered by the passing storm ‘blink’ then…

Trinity

I fell in love with who you used to be, Then I fell in with who you are. And I’ve fallen for the person you are trying to be. Sometimes I get lost, torn between these many versions of you But even in that vacuum, that myriad of emotions if you may, There is only…

BRIDGE BETWEEN NETHERWORLD AND NIRVANA

I found a strange comfort in my netherworld  Screams so loud they numbed my hearing  I embraced the darkness till I became its very nature  I dined with the swines and Lucifer  I had fallen, A price I had to pay for being worthless.  A single bridge separates my netherworld from Nirvana  And the road to it won’t be easy  But my…

Dancing in the rain

When the spring rains fell And lovers danced in the fields I hoped I’d be brought out of my hell And let go of this protective shield So I did I went out dancing Hoped that the rains touched me Just like they did on everyone else So I waited. Oh, I waited It rained…

You Are

Then my view changed, And my past was in sight But my future lay beyond the horizon, In the distance together with the setting sun. So I listened to the voices And wrote as they spoke. “Though you are broken as the ancient vases Though your past covered in shame in tears Though you may…

I’ll keep going

I’ll keep going Barefoot on broken glass and stone, I’ll keep running I’ll bleed bearing in mind that my race is yet to finish A race in which I’m my only competition And my track never straight with broken glass and thorns The hyenas and vultures of the sky will feast upon the tiny bits…

Sunset of red, Sunset of Gold

Sun set of Gold One with evening’s singing birds. They sing as if calling out night. Night hiding behind endless horizon. From where sunset of gold manifests. Her rays light up that side of sky. Sunset of red, reminds me I’m not dead. Scintillating rays bleed from the clouds In whose lines of silver I…

Chasing the sunset

With every sunset My vision worsened. I chased the falling sun So as to blur the present. Walked through the cold And let go of warm memories Solitude is all I kept So I swam and drowned in it. And while at the bottom, The bottom of a sea of emptiness I found a painful…
