Deep In The Blues

Deep In The Blues short poem

Photo by kevin dooley


Amidst the ups and downs of life
we are losing the core
Surrendering to gravity you are
falling till you are sore.

With my eyes buried down to earth,
I wish to see the sky.
With my hands shackled together,
I long to sculpt my hope.

After walking some distance alone,
I felt my wavering soul.
Like a person in a deserted road,
in a corner I am shivering cold.

Beneath the shame
I struggle to hide my face.
Behind my laughter
I always hide my shame.

Nobody knows,nobody tells.
But I know everyone pretends.

Slowly losing the hope
to reach the sky.
Setting free my dreams
in the blue sky.
Slowly growing numb
to all the smiles.
Drowning in the depth
of my lies.

Deep Inside My Eyes

Deep Inside My Eyes short poem

Don’t look deep into my eyes, who knows what you find inside? Is it the dreams that I lovingly hide, or are some demons residing inside. Am too afraid to let you know, Even too scared to make the show.

Deep Understanding

Deep Understanding short poem

Tilted lips on the wet eyes. Below the lids was floating an island in a lake. Latched to a full moon I was trotting with snowshoes, trekking with stars. A volatile virginity rebounds ticking in your heart, spiteful. And I,

A Bone-deep Knowledge

A Bone deep Knowledge short poem

Untie my hour with the Mars I am burning and I am going to disappear in my words. An alienation of a healer in deep angst? What did you find in the night of confrontation? Will you be able to
