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
Watches..
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.

A frame lifts the skirt of a portrait and throws her genitalia on your face. A twin blast has taken place. Why did you stand for eclecticism? The fables will miss you and blue horse will not return home. The

“Away from my fears is the day I dream, a place where eternal happiness awaits for me. Where no pains exist, no one could hurt me. I could breathe the way I want without losing my identity. A place so

Giving Away

Giving Away short poem

A study of soul continues; hold back the animal, discovering yourself in blind light. Awaken the hungry child of autumn and give him the dreams of strawberries to eat, time would drink his tears sans lips. A second death of

Look Away

Look Away long poem

Look away Transmission overload; Can’t seem to figure out my mind. I’m feeling home alone in time, Too late to find a bride. I have slept a thousand years; No princesses kiss to change my heart and wake me up.

Fade Away

Fade Away short poem

So here I am again laying in our bed. Wishing you could see me, but you cant ’cause I’m dead. I try to scream, but make no sound. You say goodbye as my tears hit the ground. You never even
