Post Card from a Home Far Away

Post Card from a Home Far Away short poem

I think this may annoy you a bit
Though it’s not meant that way
Why is it like that these days
We need to clarify every time
Lest it breeds, silence over and again?
It’s funny don’t you see
Despite giving my all, it’s still smirks I get back.
Yet I love you with all that is left in me.
You never realize, I gave up my jaw
To that creeping crab, for you to enjoy
The smoke rings sent up like the cupid clouds
That’s shown in the cartoons your son gleefully
I paid with part of my liver
So that yours stayed fine enough
To last those scary binging sprees
Your mother always cries about…
It’s kind of a strange trade in, you know?
Been paying for something
that I have never even tried yet.
Guess, you are doing fine.
I heard you drive like a maniac
Remember, please be careful.
Our time may soon be up
Till then we would remain
Like hollow hulls of an once green elm.

Fly Away

Sometimes my mind flies away, leaving my body behind. I look around the room, I’m so confused. Who are these people? Why am I here? It’s a bit too late, because they can’t relate. What’s happening to me? Why do

Going Home

Going Home short poem

Pain fills my room, Sweat and fear surrounds me. I will cry if I move But I have no choice. We are trying to walk, Go up and down stairs. We are all grown children Just trying to survive. You’re
