She Is Wonderful

aee0c705d26eeb796876b91a015f21ed

 

I pull her back,
I push her away,
She surfaces slowly 
When I am looking away.

I push her up
Then drag her down
leave her hurting 
On the ground.

Holy Shit!!! I Won..!

I woke up and checked the results today they had posted three lists of winners- Outstanding Awards, Commendation Awards & Participation Awards, and my heart sank when none of them had my name.

Freedom Demands sacrifice

tumblr_njtuw1MRVK1r7falzo1_500

Dancing light of a half eaten moon,
Trapped inside a dirty old bottle,
locked with a tottery bottle cap
Eager to break free from the trap.

One shudder and the bottle’s down,
All that light spilling on the ground,

Synchronized To The Drum Beat

Thoughts, dreams
And all things innate

Synchronized to
The drum beat

Plastic dolls marching
In a street parade.

Do gooders, revolutionaries,
Free thinkers,
 all aligned
To form their respective lines.

Fire can’t burn

That which is already ablaze.

How do you destroy

That which rises from the ashes,

like a phoenix made of flames?

Shine And Let Shine

0476c332bfe22f9a7ae62cf8a53aca2d--conceptual-photography-artistic-photography

It’s those who want to change the world
To their idea of better,
That are keeping it from becoming better.
Change will not come from a revolutionary leader
Who wants to make the world as he is.
Change will not come from
A place of power or influence.
It will come from the masses.

Old Scars

She traces her scars every night in the dark,
And picks on the scabs from the wounds of her heart,
She likes the pain she says.
She wears her old scars like tattoos of tales,
Says she would rather be a melancholy song,
A twisted story, a poignant poetry

The Sorceress

IMG_4959-Edit1

She casts a spell with her heady scent,
leaves you lingering on words wondering what she meant.
Beautiful scars on a delicate frame,
But far from something you can claim or tame.
She is madness wrapped in gorgeous flesh,
Sorcery swirls at the hem of her dress.

Night

 The end came and took from me,
The only thing I cared about.
I live on carrying around,
A heart heavy with memories.
I am still alive,
But only a little.
Sun still comes up every morning,
But the night doesn’t end.
