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…

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…

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…

Who Will Hold Me?

Who will stand close when the world is against me?Who will hold my hand when I am clutching at emptiness?Who will hear me out when my words stay unheard by all?Who will pull me to sunshine when my life is clouded?Who will love me when I am at my worst? Who will find a reason…

I Never Was

Life was going at its own paceBut that day it paused for a bitSomeone had crept into my heartWhose laughter dissolved in my earsI still see them smiling todayBut I am not the reason for their happiness Perhaps I never was… But that doesn’t matter or does it?I want their happiness even if I don’t…

A Storm In Me

Am I too delicate to face the storm?Am I too soft to brace their thundering form?Am I too fragile to break the norm? I am a woman facing a storm A woman’s anger is mightier than the stormA woman herself is no less than a thundering formA woman’s strength makes and breaks the norm I…

Wordless

I am a book of life, know me more with each paraI am a poetry compilation, dig deeper to understand meI am an album of songs, decode my lyrics from the beatsI am a gossip magazine, turn every page for new scoopI am a dictionary, learn my meaning in every wordI am a novel, find…

Just A Blossom

Pretty to the eye like a flower they would sayPreciously fragile like a petal they would sayScented like a rose they would sayEasy to tame like a potted floret they would say Are women nothing more than a blossom? Pretty on the inside like a saint I will sayPreciously strong like a pillar I will…

The Girl In Red Heels

“Good girls don’t make bold fashion statements.”“She’s just asking for attention!”“Strutting around her stuff like that in a party, she has no shame!”“She tripped over that broken glass, must be dead drunk!”“That little pouch she has, I know what she’s getting high on!”“Look at that guy hugging her, I bet she’s hooking up with him.”“He…

Dip me In

Dip me in a can of whiteImmerse me in it till I drownThen let me emerge as a new meKilling a soul and birthing a colorWho is painted in your hueWho is one of you, among you Dip me in a can of whiteImmerse me in it till I drownLet my cries silence foreverAs I…

Ripped

I am just another woman, tied on both endsSurrendering to one who takes me overWith strings in their hands and power tooThey pull at my sides to exert controlI am bound to obey them both…till…One dies or the other wins all at stakeLike a beast they pounce on mePulling at my ends with brutal forceRipping…
