Month: August 2014

Page Rage

The page screams at me,

blinding light that deafens the soul

my weakness turning to obstinacy

 

I scramble through the thoughts

Rehash the tears

Extrapolating the emotions 

Trapped in pockets of hearts

 

Pure glowing light, covered by words

Punched by grammar

Spritzed with sentimentality

 

Blank space you cannot win!

You will be ambushed by my nouns

Lashed by my tongue

Pulverized by poetry

 

Hear this empty page – I do not fear you

 

Orange on pink..

Just something sweet to make you smile 🙂

Life as Art... and a bit of nonsense...

I like to dip my toes in pink…

And dance around my dreams…

leaving footprints scattered…

like orange and yellow leaves…

.

.


.

Colors make me happy…

Rainsong

 

“The water of life”

That’s what she would say

As the fat splodges dashed the window pane

Sliding downwards, softly popping on the sill.

 

Sometimes it would rain for a whole afternoon

And we would huddle together

Like squirrels, in a drey

Listening to the song of rainfall

Curled up in the lap of safety

Of one another

 

Those afternoons were our own, back then

No school bell, no work obligations,

No snooze alarm, no phones.

Just rain.

 

Just you, me and the rain’s song

 

 

 

I Cease To Exist

I love that the poem tumbles out of the mouth – nice rhythm

Of Cinema

I cease to exist
when you start
to think
and formulate
ideas and dictate
your words,
when you talk
about you
and all you restlessly
wish to do–
the brilliant,
prospering things.
I cease to exist
when you’re asked
about love,
what it means and
what it does,
when your heart
pounds itself
against the inside walls
of your ribs
for someone else.
The moment
your lips part
and whisper their
goodbyes to each other,
the moment
you take a breath
to fill your lungs
just enough
to produce a sound
is the moment
I cease to exist
in your world,
in your space,
in your air,
in the oceans
of your thoughts,
in your words,
in everything
that you say
or do.
