Beauty In Destruction

It is serene and quaint, like the calmness before a storm. I can sense it build behind me. Slowly it is growing, taking control. It growls at me as if telling me who is in charge here. But I am relaxed as if I am unaware of its existence. I know it is there, I…

Sheldon’s Suspense

“You don’t know what can happen tomorrow. Life is like a novel, isn’t it? It’s filled with suspense. You never know what’s going to happen until you turn the page.” -Sidney Sheldon

If Only I Had Known

I remember the day when ma picked me up and put me down and never picked me up again… I was big…big enough to be on my ownFrom a girl I was a woman full grownInto my life, struggles were flownHad stayed young…if only I had known I remember the day when life went astray…

A Single Matchstick

One matchstick is all it takes to light up a pyre. Yes it is a pyre that we are igniting today. But “Who died?” is the question on our lips. It is a pyre lighted to bid farewell to a love long dead. This pyre will burn all the memories we ever lived. A bunch…

One Sided Lover

To the one sided lover, I know you weren’t joking when you laughingly said, “You should be with me”. I know you hated seeing me with anyone else even when you laughed it off. I know you meant it when you said, “We should go on a date”. I know you were never “kidding” every…

Stars Below Me

The Happy Me

Do you know when I felt the happiest? It was a few moments before I said “I do” to you. Those last moments of blissful unawareness…The time I didn’t know what was awaiting me. The time when I was dreaming of a life full of love. The time I lived a few years ago…Those moments…

Let Your Tears Escape

Let them escape your eyes and flow past your faceLet them ease the pain in your heart……And the soreness in your throatLet them wash your lashes and the dreams hung onto themLet them push the hurt from your mind…And the heaviness from your soul Let them escape your eyes and flow past your faceLet them…

Dante’s Hell

The hottest places in hell are reserved for those who, in times of great moral crisis, maintain their neutrality. -Dante Alighieri

Bound To The Ground

Spreading my wings wide I want to fly highLike a bird… breaking free from its flockThe skies roar, singing a song of welcomeReady to envelope me with arms so openI jump up and into its awaiting embraceBut back on the land I fall as it tightens the gripMy roots pull me down, stopping my flightI…

Free From The Maze

Towards the distant clouds I gazeStretching a hand beyond the earthly mazeRising above this choking hazeReaching the ball of fire ablazeA point where me and freedom brazeWhere birds chirp and cattle grazeWhere smiles strive over deathly fazeWhere I will be free…free from this daze
