Lost

“In the middle of the journey of our life I came to myself within a dark wood where the straight way was lost.” –Dante Alighieri

The Girl In Red

A red hot siren they said Like I am a glowing light Not a woman with eyes bright A red meaty feast they said Like I am a dish stuffed tight To delve into when dark sets the night A red Bloody Mary they said Like I am a drink to quench their sight Not…

Stained

Love was not her cup of tea and her friends thought it to be her detached personality and brushed it off but was that it? Her hollow eyes and emotionless kisses had a story to tell or maybe she just wasn’t into him! He had to find out and so he embarked a journey into…

The Queen Of Dark

When life is at a standstill, reflect on it Just as I did… do you know what I got? Answers to unending questions… So what if all of them were jumbled up? The colorful rainbows have disappeared And my thoughts bear the color black With the same sound ringing in my ears I speak of…

Secluded

As I close my eyes to this lovely morning, I allow the darkness to set in again. Questions begin to cloud my mind and answers to them escape to a world unknown. Surrounded by beauty and serenity on all sides, yet the inner turmoil boils it to ashes. So much noise on the outside, but…

Hollow Of A Dark Night

In a world of desires I stand cracked but firm Holding my roots strong, hiding my inner squirm Turning a deaf ear to the sinful pelting of life Wearing a brave face, hiding my personal strife What lies ahead is beyond me to unravel But I will still walk the path on painful gravel Towards…

Playing with my dolls one day I laughed and sang by the bay Tittle tottle tittle tottle my dad came A wide grin contrasting his small frame I jumped up at once, he caught me for sure The hug that followed was a love so pure As I plonked on his lap, his smile faded…

Seasonal Life

When your shoulders start to stoop And confidence begins to waver Look up to the sky with hope in your eyes And await the change that will soon come over It’s around the corner. You know why? Life swings with the grace of seasons Stays stagnant for a while, then flows by After the heavy…

The Last Fall

Isn’t our life just like a board of chess? No matter how hard we try, it remains a mess For us who are alien to the rules of this life End up drowning in a constant strife You reward me with painful whips And just a cry barely escapes my lips Acceptance is the key…

Stillness

No thoughts racing my mind, there’s a complete blank I see no images in my mind, an unending black occupies it Devoid of all emotions now, like a stone I sit all day long In an endless pit I am falling, down and down into the dark I crave those old times, the tough old…

The Naked Truth

She shivers at the mere thought of facing it. Her feet stagger, limbs giving up on this strenuous task. And before she knew, her body crumpled into a heap. Her eyes have lost the strength to look up and are in a wait for the dark to set in. Hours go by without her getting…

Don’t Regret

Stretch your arms and touch that light For once darkness sets, you will only regret
