One Night Stand

Estimated Reading Time: 1 minute

  My heart beat in unison With the rising crescendo of raindrops Pounding on the tin roof Announcing the arrival Of the monsoon, my love The ground still damp The air heavy and humid The distinct smell, evident The white walls turned gray The crude bruises still raw.. Everywhere I stare in dismay Lies what…

Who Am I?

Estimated Reading Time: 0 minutes Less than a minute

Who am I? A kind compassionate soul burdened with tolerance, Tolerance of any rebuke, any injustice, Self-defense denied by the law of obedience.   Who am I? A superhuman to toil for others, With no reward in return, Not even a single word of appreciation .    Who am I? A free spirit chastised as…

The Missing

Estimated Reading Time: 1 minute

There will come a day when you will miss her. When you least expect it, There will be an emptiness within that you can’t quite place. You will miss her in parts. Her sleepy smile, And her complete inability to be less of anything. You will miss the way she loves and the way she…

Run Little One

Estimated Reading Time: 0 minutes Less than a minute

Run little one From the whispering raspy voices, the vacant white-eyed stares of the ghosts watching you. Do you feel them creeping closer? Run little one From the darkness creeping in, tendrils tugging at your ankles as your feet pound against the rocks. They are getting closer. Run little one To the edge, that beckons…

Change of Colour

Estimated Reading Time: 1 minute

Blue and purple eyeshadows and the bloody red lipstick are the only make up my face knows. They are permanent. Painted by your fists.   I do not attempt to differ, For you will paint me again the same. Every day I beg you not to apply the same colours, But you do not seem…

Unspoken Syllables

Estimated Reading Time: 1 minute

You dust a little sparkle on your freckled face Brush a coat of bliss Palpitations -hoping to amaze Hoping to be the tie’s koumiss You cripple with every tear Smile with every chime You treasure the eyes that speared Your soul- a blessed crime You stroll through orchards Of ripened dreams Excavating thy vein You…

An Ode To High

Estimated Reading Time: 0 minutes Less than a minute

We hide that sleep behind eyes, when your gaze penetrates the night. Skating on the borders of our dreams, we swim to the moon on your tide. You dance in our hearts to speak our minds. All eyes turned in – lift our fears, from darkness Into an unknown million miles to a high.  …

Stars

Estimated Reading Time: 0 minutes Less than a minute

We are but stars In our own solar systems. I hope we meet, not collide, To steal a kiss, A friendly hug, A longing look, How do you do? And off we go, Each one on our own orbit, Each one satisfied, knowing, That we spread a little light In an otherwise Dark universe.  …

Cyan

Estimated Reading Time: 1 minute

I like the colour blue, I was the colour blue, Melancholy sorrow, dreams and solitude.   In a world where most were yellow, I chose to remain blue. I refused to fall victim to this sickness, refused to let it taint my hue.   She was a fine shade of cyan when we met, her…

Just The Way You Deserve It

Estimated Reading Time: 1 minute

Don’t call me at odd hours in the night, To tell me things you should’ve said in hindsight, Weeks went by and all I did was wait, When you used my love for you as bait. That wasted time I won’t get back, So don’t call me now that I’m back on track. I will…
