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

On Fire

I am the color of fire, devoid of all color I am the spark of fire, devoid of all spark I am the heat of fire, devoid of all heat I am the flame of fire, burning in my own flame I am the wrath of fire, a victim of my own wrath I am…

I Am Alive

You have sucked life out of my eyes, my soul and my existence. Now I float above the ocean like world as a dead body would. My eyes are still open but they are frozen pearls with no tears in them. My heart is still beating but feels nothing. My brain is alive and well…

The Colored Canvas

Staring at the blank canvas, she stands with paints around her. It was a beautiful sunset right outside her window. But today nothing could inspire her to pick up the brushes. Lying on the table with the palette was a form that would admit her to medical school. But did she want that? Her father…

Cracked And Exposed

A crack I hear, did it come from there? Oh, I hear another one from here Where is it cracking, here or there? I see it nowhere, can you see it here? And then I turn towards the mirror there Where I see it all, the cracks everywhere But how did they reach here? Inside…

Pool Of Blues

A dip in the pool of blues gave me perspective. Is blue the color of sadness that I feel today? Then why is the sky so blue? It is free from all strings, has wind blown over it and smiles in the chirping of birds. Why is the water so blue? It is calm and…

“For truly we are all angels temporarily hiding as humans.” -Dr. Brian L. Weiss

I Am THAT Woman

Blown by the wind, flown by the waves I am the woman who listens to your raves Pushed by the passer, groped by the teaser I am the woman who lives as the pleaser Accused by the words, bruised by the swords I am the woman who kneels before the lords Used by the man,…

The Peace Of Solitude

They see me sitting alone and shake their heads They call me lonely and give me a sympathetic look I wave past them towards my den, away and alone I smile and nod at them, those ignorant souls… Did they not see peace in my eyes? And the tranquility of my soul shinning bright? Loneliness…

At The End

At the end of my arrow you stand tight Scared of the fate that may befall you Scared of the pain that will soon tear you Scared of the horror you will now face At the end of my arrow you kneel down Begging forgiveness from my tortured soul Begging for a little mercy from…

In An Expanse Of Snow

It is a serene scene in front of me today. I stand on top of a snow covered mountain and look in the distance. I soak in the tranquility of the fluffy cottony dreamy landscape. This is the stuff of my winter dreams that I would weave with sweaty palms. I’d shudder in this cold…
