Poem: Let The Mist Runs Free

I spray ocean mist on me
because you’re obsessed with it.
You broke my Nirvana’s record
because I refused
to conquer the world with you.

Now I’m willing to delete our song,
Throw away your sweater; and
Donate those paperbacks you left behind,
If only I could dispose this feeling
of disappointment by substituting
that was of an ethereal and chiseled —

Poem: On Wall

This picture
exists due to your
unending words and magic,
Our scents in carousel —
Pain subsides; bursting twilight.

Poem: Impulse

I wash melancholy
with summertime ashes
I was lying on your mattress
counting the shantung eclipse
with our fingers, eyes and
lips — anywhere.

Poem: Skin Deep

Ode to this beat of my heart,
My fingers move beyond my grip,
Wide awake and stroking love,
Tasting sweetness in salty tears,
Oh, so comfortable this affection
I have — down to this beautiful stranger.
Your voice and that deep breathing,
Close my eyes and let it go,
A mere touch will never be enough,
Take it slow; take it all with you.

Poem: When I Was Knocked Upside Out

Fairy tales are make believe,
Happily ever after should exist,
If only faithfulness did not
turn into betrayal and dishonesty.
Infidelity is today’s featured film.

In order to be in a relationship,
I have to fall in love; and be in love,
Even if I were in a relationship,
I still don’t believe in love —

Do you think I’m worth for your night?
If you were in my shoes, would you
ever empathized a broken mirror wall?
Awaiting for someone to love —
why not we start by loving ourselves?

Poem: Say Like You Mean It

Your imperfection draws me closer,
You were there when I was down,
Spiritually, far away and yet feeling it,
Wished to meet you one day —

Saying ‘I Love You’
Because you truly mean it
Hold her like you can’t let go,
Kiss her like you’ve never done before —

Silent to the core
Making my heart sore
Please untie the knot
Capitalising our metaphor —

Micropoetry #60

I may be here for you, today
But when tomorrow comes
You may not find me anywhere
But in spirit I am with you.
Always —

God has spoken to me
Everything will be all right
I can see it’s happening now
Fear has taken over
by courage and strength.
