Hopes Of Sunshine

To the woman who is finding her sunshine, I see you at night looking up at the starless sky and shed a tear for every hope you lose. I know you are surrounded with dark clouds every night. I see you turning off the lights in your room only to count the hours ticking away…

Full Circle

I have been running for days, weeks and months. Not stopping for a moment and today I’ve reached where I belong. The night time sky looking upon me as if reminding me of the dark patches I saw in this journey. But it is all behind me now, the journey to reach this point is…

Trapped In A Box

I wake up feeling suffocated, like someone is choking me with a pillow. I slowly open my eyes and all I see is dark. I try to move but my movement is constricted. I wiggle to make room but I bang my feet on a hard board. My breathing is labored and I can see…

The Evil In Me

You want the girl who smells as a daisy but I am not a flower you can pluck. I am a woman who has roughened up with the wild. You want the girl who spins sugar with her words but I am not a candy who melts sweetness in you. I am a woman who…

A Free Flight

I see in you the desire to fly highFly high up in the air and conquerConquer the vast expanse of skySky where you belong and liveLive to be free from the groundThe ground that pulls you backBack you want to returnReturn to the roots that you once had I see in you the desire to…

An Empty World

I see immense light radiating from a ball. I pick it up, it’s heavy and blue. I am dazzled by its light, my eyes unable to take it. I blink heavily to adjust to this luminous sphere. My hands start shaking as I realize this azure ball is the world. I can feel this incandescent…

In Search Of Light

There is light at the end of this tunnel that has long since been drowned. So what if I have to float to get to the other end? The light never dims… it still shows me the path. So what if I have to hold a lamp to guide me even during the day? The…

A Letter To Your Man

To my best friend’s lover, I am yet to see you two together but I can already imagine how you’ll look as a couple. I can imagine her blushing under your gaze. Her lips curling into a smile when you profess your love to her. I can imagine you pushing her locks behind her ears…

Buried In Snow

Bury me in the cold snow todayWhere no gust of wind can swayAnd no shower of rain will sprayTill I lose myself and go astrayBury me in the cold snow todayPut me here to rest and frayWhere none crosses my wayAnd none to sit by and stayBury me in the cold snow todayTake my colors…

Love Burns

“But to see her was to love her,Love but her, and love foreverHad we never lou’d sae kindly,Had we never lou’d sae blindly,Never met – or never parted –We had ne’er been broken hearted” -Robert Burns

Frozen In Time

It has been years since you left me to decayAnd years since I tripped here to rotIt has been years since you pushed me to festerAnd years since I cocooned to putrefyIt has been years since you abandoned me to mouldAnd years since I accepted to witherIt has been years since you deserted me to…

My Womanly Glow

They made the big reveal 20 years agoMy real identity crushed and let goI was too young to even knowWhat it means by a piece of flesh belowShades of blue fell on me like snowBut pink was my destiny that I couldn’t throw“You’ll get over it when you grow”How can my true colors cease to…
