Graves of Pain

She alike the oceans
concealed in her chest,
All the horror that passed through her,
Disasters put to rest.

She alike the fiery lava,
Charring self to dust.
Amidst the grip of blurry fear,
Follies of her past.

She alike the leaves of fall,
Swerving her way to doom.
Faded amongst a thousand shades,

Where dreary silhouettes loom. 

She alike the winter bird,
A herald to storms and rain,
Chirping in the waning light,
Her nest on graves of pain...

  2. I'm deeply humbled by your words. Poetry is the fire in the belly that waits to be thrown up onto paper.

Death Comes Closer

When the passion in my veins
becomes the poison in my blood
and death comes closer by a step
I will not shrivel in sudden fear
or dissolve into a mist of a pitiable plight
For even when I die
My words will illuminate lives with it's
perennial light.

A Nobody

The way your eyes smirk at my existence
and heavy breaths sublime under hallucinating lights
The rifts of your wet lips, abhorrent and unawaiting
On mine sometimes, sometimes gone
A lover's sigh, and poet's respite,

You.

The splash of aquamarine to my gloomy canvases.


Freckle

I was a virgin canvas
your lips couldn't stain

I had waterfalls inside my chest
your eyes couldn't contain

I ached in places
your hands couldn't touch

I spoke of autumns
words couldn't adorn much

So what you loved that beauty spot
on the edge of my waist,
Alongside thrived a freckle
you had already abandoned in haste.
