Took some time out From the public eye Time to think and wonder About the reason why We strive to leave a mark Something to signify That we lived and that an echo Will carry on after we die
Eyes, darting from left to right Heart, split in two Soul, dwelling half in dark and half in light Road, forking east and west Mind, grappling Body, yearning for from this search, a rest Spirit, torn midst night and day Questioning, is it true or false? Unknowing of the answer – is sheContinue reading “Confusion”
Wanderer, treading gingerly upon this broken path, as dried leaves crunch underfoot, remnants of a glorious summer; a time when the world was brighter, greener, fertile. Now, petals in decay, rotting fruit forgotten, their beauty lying only in a memory, distant and fading like a parting touch, goodbye kiss; tender, yet bringing the firmContinue reading “Lost”
Captured, by her eyes of steel It would be wrong to call them cold They’re only hardened against a world Which punishes those who feel Her passion, dark as night Hidden beneath false layers A guarded guise, heart opening Only to those with a certain sight Ruptured, your soul is caught Splintering beneathContinue reading “Freedom”

All that time spent chasing stars, Eyes set on the future you Abandoned the present and Now,Continue reading “Fallen”
In this anxious place This hopeless space The mind spirals away Trapped in thought Bars caging her heart She’s unable to start Inner voices pursuing Until she’s caught The shadows whirl Too strong for a girl To resist the touch Of her mocking plight And in silence she sits Her eyes desperateContinue reading “Anxiety”
Then came violent winds, tearing away the delicate petals of innocent roses, precious limbs torn from their body. You stare speechless at the sight that remains, at the thorny echo of beauty, hollow shell of ravished time. Nothing but a prickly stem is left to tell, a forgotten story of hopeless love, abandonedContinue reading “Winter Roses”
Tell me where does the moon go,
Why does she sometimes hide her face?
Silver beauty, heart’s delight,
Hiding in shadows, oft she’s missed.
