Defying It All

Defying It All short poem

Photo by Tim . Simpson

Keep me there forever,
In that fine line of your smile,
Keep me there, my precious,
For I feel like staying a while.

My image is in shards,
I wince when I touch my face,
Death quietly spreads it gallows,
I plead for mercy…a little grace.

I dream of us by the river side,
Feet entwined as our hearts drum,
Clouds shyly glance by two of us,
Within my heart,I simply wish to run.

With you by my side I will betray,
Demons of demise around me,
I am a human shallow and astray,
For love, I will turn worldly.

Pull me closer in your embrace,
I would die to live once more,
My bones are prepared to renounce,
But my spirit hums of love galore.

I hear faraway stifled voices,
Maybe the holy convoys are here,
Your love has evolved me much,
Yet, never will I ever dare to share.

I will merge with the earth soon,
Let my contour fade off in your memory,
Don’t mourn; find me every morn around you,
A translucent, damp, dew drop almost filigree.

Butterflies emerge from unraveling cocoons Raising up, flying away like hot air balloons Traveling the world from calm meadows to isolated lagoons Harmonious living with the squirrels and raccoons Soaring above endless ocean until treacherous typhoons Relentless digging uncovered a

All I Unread

All I Unread short poem

I unwrite a song for she, a gratis homage. Questioning imperils the sky, clouds would not weep. A cover-up comes to quote scriptures the meaning of deployment. Was I feeling smug after counting the pages of unread death? ———————————————– I

All The Griefs

All The Griefs short poem

The mysterious rival: suffering of resignation. I am reading myself for the surrealism of life, juxtaposition of love and hate. Another blast went off. White rose and black rose in the same garland; ruins of truth were older than lies.
