Words, my escape. Poetry, my salvation,
September 4, 2019
 

Memories swirl a smoky puddle of dreams
Alighting from grey cloud patterns of illusions
Glimpses and pieces,
refracting prisms of light to
Illuminate a dusty corner in your mind.
Creating a kaleidoscope of colors,
A prism of lost thoughts
Leading the way to find yourself again.

Love that grows on a tree;
where branches turn into hugs
and leaves curl smiles
while they sway with laughing winds. A touch of hope on fragrant buds, saplings green like promises of spring
where the fruit is sweet and juices overflow.
With rough skin of bark,
tough and resilient to critters
that burrow and nest  through the years.
Roots that hold and nourish, a steadfast clock.
It’s the kind of love I wish for, the kind that grows on a tree.

I remember nights of old
when we were young
lying close nestled in
each other’s arms.
A porch with walls of glass surrounds
as we watched a moonlit sky
dotted with dancing lights.
You whispered,
“long as the stars, they shine,
and sparkling fireflies fly abound,
summer will always be in our hearts.”

Love me for more,

more than the wistful need
more than the parched mouth
more than the shy shadows
more than the delicate blooms

Love me for all,

all your dreams fulfilled
all your thirst quenched
all your light shining
all your passions realized

‘Tis the only way I know
to love,
to feel,
to have
of love.

More and all.

I can’t ever express how I truly miss you. The flowers in the garden remind me everyday. I’d kill them all but then I don’t know if I’m ever going to live without feeling your softness in my hands again. So i just let them grow, tend and water my bleeding heart.

You Found Me

I was a tiny seed you picked up and  planted in the heavy soil of my soul.
Times I tried to sprout
but didn't because
I was afraid the caterpillars
would eat my leaves
and the squirrels would
dig my roots.

You did not give up on me,
You came to water me daily.
Killed all the bugs
And made the soil rich with earthworms that tickled me.

You were watching me
Slowly but surely as I left the
Heaviness behind me.
You brought me out
of the shade and made sure I saw the sun until
I learned to yearn for it.

You were so proud of me
but you didn't know that
I was prouder of you.

You gave me the water
I thirsted for and the light
I needed to grow into
You were the trellis I crept ...

I often come across the question, Why do you write? When my pen is not writing, my mind is racing, but a mind racing does not always translate to ink bleeding on paper. My answer was simple, I write to escape the mundane. Writing makes me happy.  I find writing poems expresses what normally would not be part of a serious conversation in real life. I need to write to overflow like a waterfall, a strong gush of cold water, mighty, falling from atop a mountain. You hear it cascading downwards with so much force it creates a reservoir of water strong enough to flow to become a river. Then sometimes I am not a waterfall, I am a shallow water of a babbling brook, dancing my way across tiny rocks an...

often
I find
my mind
pauses to think
who am I?
a shell
tossed by the waves
brittle and hollow
vacant
but if pressed
to a listening ear
contains an ocean
of thoughts
myriad
lost
found
kicked back to sea
echoing waves
that keeps
bringing me back
to the thought
who am I?
a shell

Feet are tired,
but not as tired as my mind.
Hands are tired,
but not as tired as my heart.

Take me to a river
where cold waters are raging.
For hands and feet to soak,
rest and refresh,
that they may journey
to where all worries wash,
out yonder in
the deep blue sea.

I have known love,
In your voice
when you say my name.
On your lips
when we kiss.
In your hands
that held mine.
Love found,
sadly lost.
Now the name doesn’t
mean a thing.
Cold lips,
no strength to hold.
I wish
I never knew
love at all.

Hearing the rain gently tap on my window sill never fails to put me in a reflective and poetic mood. The house is so quiet right now. Probably because it’s a Sunday and everyone else wants to sleep in. My work schedule has been pretty regular the past weeks and my body clock has gotten used to waking up and going to bed at the same time. I don’t know if this is good or bad but I think I find the daily routines boring. Plus I don’t get the chance to catch up with my friends on social media, which is again I can’t tell if it’s good or bad. If there’s one thing that this rain is reminding me right now is that I can stop for a good quiet time. Feel a warm cup of coffee in my hands, smell the arom...

one,
I gave only to one.
t’was the first
and the last,
but it left me in pieces
and i break over and over.

A daily cascade of

shedding worth,
skinning flesh raw,
gutting me to the core.
All, for the only

All we are,
you and I,
arms and limbs,
pumping hearts;
red river coursing
through our veins.

Walking different roads,
step strides on paths
where our feet takes us
towards the same destination.

Time will come,
breath shall escape
to deflate our lungs;
full-stop journeys where we shall all lie supine.

The  warm earth
welcomes all
in the end.

meant for love
flowing from source
came up empty

a barren wasteland
parched and desolate
for falling in love
was a distant memory

Life is the best teacher they say and I have never come across one as persistent as she is. One thing I have never learned is how everything is temporary. Once green leaves on a bough turns to rust and will soon be snapped from the branch. Even the sun gets tired of the day—sets to give way to night. I question why I had to meet you. Why I even let you shed some light in the comfortable darkness that I was always so used to. You became a spark, a tiny ember of light that brightened and warmed an otherwise bleak and empty space. I let it burn a little. Fed it shavings from conversations on life and sweet nothings. I was stubborn and never really  listened to the lessons... The embers will glow...

Can you catch the days, put on repeat?
You’re a disease contracted, metastasized.
swept by the wind, gone with time.
Out of touch, out of sight
but your presence is always deeply felt.

I wanted to write
a poem
so I could let you know

about a boy
I loved
that didn’t even know

love had I to give
for whom
but none to receive

I tried hard
to forget
but this heart would not let go

I’d write a poem for you
only if
you knew that the boy was you

You’re a maggot
burrowing the insides
of my mind.
Awake or in dreams,
slithering  back
to feast over and over.
Until there’s nothing left,
nothing left of me.

Always On My Mind

i remember you
in the afternoons
when golden sun on skin
warmed hands
and petals entwined
our fingertips

i remember you
as dusk appeared
while shadows played
beneath the trees
with falling leaves
kissing our faces

i remember you
in the darkness
when silence spoke
and air left my lungs
as they lowered you
to the ground

i remember you
every fucking waking morning
sunlight streaming memories
of your sweet smile
slowly drifting, fading
flying with the wind

As dawn undressed the night,
shadows flee to hide from light.
Cloak disrobes from branches bright,
baby birds chirp, awake to flight.
What was black with stars
became sailing clouds of blue.
Sunlight peers a shimmering hue.
A burst of color on a morning dew.
Another day to right the wrongs.
An opportunity to say thank you.
To welcome life as always new
as dawn undressed the night for you.

i grieve for a tear
that fell
from eyes
that turned dry

i sigh for air
that escaped
these lungs
that forgot how to breathe

i long for warmth
that grazes
this skin
that has turned cold

i miss love
that lived
in a heart
that once knew how to feel

through dry eyes
the breath of life still flows
though cold this touch
it was love that turned it so

Night Sky

I closed my eyes
and my breathing
slowed, steady.

My body relaxed
and became one
with silence around me.

In the absence of light
under a canopy of sparkling stars,
I laid on the cold damp earth.

A gentle breeze
rustled the leaves of the towering tree
that was beside me.

T’was nature’s concerto,
heard in hopes to fine tune
this tone deaf heart.

Moonbeams sliced through
smoky shadows as it turned the strands
of my black hair to silver.

It was like the first time
I have seen the night sky
in a very long time.

What Purpose

Often enough I sit to stop and think.
What purpose these hands, what can they give?
A hand that bleeds, writes life in ink.
Often enough I sit to stop and think.
Rivers flow from this heart and mind in sync.
To lift, create, be positive.
Often enough I sit to stop and think.
What purpose these hands, what can they give?

Washed Clean

footsteps on the sand — washed clean by the waves
sin engraves, this blessed land
yet you chose to hold my hand

it's another day — for the sun does rise
heartfelt cries, were trapped in grey
you released wind swept away

clouds above my head —tears were falling rain
numbing pain, felt like i'm dead
your love has saved me instead

Weighing heavy
