Kissing Shadow

Kissing Shadow short poem

Uploaded by jorgina_farouk


Guise like an angel, cuts like a devil
Child-like, playful, so fickle as he tickle
Sleek, dark, cat-like eyes
Brows black as the chilly night
Cherry-picking lips, decadent smile
Little kitty, big bad leopard inside.
Breathe-like stance, scary but not airy
Sizzle, fizzle… one look and I’m in buzzle
Round and round, always going round-about
Pretty lil’ tease, an enigma to please
Steely glances, frost-bitten heart
Hard to follow, are your insides hollow?
Back to black, black to back
I wonder as you wander,
“Stealthy shadow, can your smile be borrowed?”
Devilish, cynical smirk
Daunting, haunting, leaving you wanting
Easy to catch, hard to catch
So much to express, only to impress
Teeny tiny, always gliding over me lil’ darkie?
Your eyes, gliding with mystique
Just when I thought that I had you as mine
Then like kissing a shadow,
You are gone.

Drowned in unclogged arteries: thoughts. I am going to release a swarm of bees. It was your dark hour. A father sits outside your body to collect the stings. A restive finger on a blue gun invites the ghosts to

Moon’s Shadow

Moon’s Shadow short poem

The path was becoming pathless after seeking the deluge. Gunslingers were climbing on trees to shoot the white doves. There were ice needles in my eyes to check the inheritance of height. Desires move with a feline grace, lynx-eyed. You

Kissing Caldrons

Kissing Caldrons short poem

Putting the fire in mouth as a last rite he readied himself for the onslaught of questions, who will attack like leeches, the blood sucking parasites. It was a bizarre coalition of love between kissing cousins. The knifing will continue

Death Of A Shadow

Death Of A Shadow short poem

This life has snubbed the bloom like a thick brown sac thrown on the sod. An octogenarian tries to slice the hope indulgingly to achieve immortality! Was it a virile snarl? A rose bud wrenched open in a fatherless home.

The Shadow

I give you a shoulder to cry on, endless night talks, lamentations & worries, I have made your problems my burden, support both emotionally & physically, These four walls have seen it all, love, worry, regret & the thief of
