Dying Wildflower

d8bd59d203a52ea1c3135c2e281cad60

He plucked the flower for himself,
And he was so happy to have it,
But then it started dying,
Day by day, petal by petal
He watched it turn to dust with an aching heart.

Free From Myself

300e97d12a6791ec57e667d66aface2f

 

I tried pushing the walls,
Bruised my knuckles on locked doors,
Broke my back trying to move mountains.

And When I was completely broken,
And when I gave up all control
All illusions of control,
When I was free falling,

The wind lifted me up
Like a feather, I was swaying in the air,
flowing and swirling with the wind,
flying with the wind.

Mangata

Her eyes were a shade of grayish blue tonight

Like a cloudy sky on a melancholy evening.

Tears lingered on the edges of those skies

like heavy clouds filled to the brink with rain

Yet never falling,

Glittering like the ocean in the moonlight,

The Fight of Right Against Right

white_knight_by_marcjamesart-d8nhyc5

With a towel tied around his neck
Like a cape, he flew.
He fought the monster he read about
In fairy tales, when he was feeling blue.
He rode his imaginary horse and waved
His wooden sword like a white knight.
He was going to be a hero, a savior,
He was going to fight for what’s right.

She Was A Kite Adrift

She was a kite adrift,
She wanted to keep moving,
There was no place
She really wanted to go or be.
Her eyes were searching for something
But what, she couldn’t see.

Coming Home To you

Writing letters to home

This morning I woke up So full of joy
Yet feeling so light, almost weightless,
Flowing in the air unmoored from the floor
like a feather or pollen or music or perfume.
Surrounded by chaos and precariousness
Yet so perfectly at peace
At the thought of seeing you soon,
At the thought of returning home to you.

Look What The Fools Did

Up_Jonathan_Frappe

They heard some legends of it,

Some folk songs, Some tribal tales of it.

Foolish they were, they confused it with reality,

They had dreams, they didn’t care for actuality.

They were not kids anymore,

It was not cute anymore.

Life Granted Her Wish

Life granted her wish,

Almost threw it in her face,

Slammed it in her face

As roughly as it could,

Beyond Qualm And Confidence

tumblr_nqlwgrHvUJ1t9762so1_500

As she walked with confident steps
Towards the life she wanted,
Looking poised and prepared to the world,
Her mind was cluttered with muddled thoughts.
A gradual qualm had taken over her,
Does the end always justify the means?
She visioned it happening differently,
And what if the life she wanted
Is not really the life that is good for her?
