Blueberry Notes

Last night I travelled to the dream libraries of our childhood summers A pastel-coloured palette, cotton candy, and liquorice o n m y l i p s I imagined fantasy birds, fell in love with new words, And savoured mesmerising s o u n d s * Last night I travelled to the dream libraries of our childhood summers Nina sings to herself while I rub my eyes— still too sleepy A sandy, crisp, and […]

Tender fire Loving, grand, Witless fables— Vacuous S o u n d s Damn his hunger For fast food Callow words And easy D e a l i n g s When all I fancied Was slow-cooked, Spicy lines, And complex M e a n i n g s ! * Wide, wide, windows, Lavish bloom, Pompous, charming, Prosaic, B l a n d Damn his hunger For fast food Callow words And easy D […]

A Twist of Lemon

Poetry

He smiles as I write these words A twist of lemon, some bitter tonic— flowing through thirsty veins * I smile as he draws a pair of eyes The ones that brighten the darkest days of our nocturne souls * Chilly air swirls into our empty space While I get rid of commas, full stops— irreverent aftertastes * It all ends with a styled, stained letter and a twist of lemon— As it gently infuses […]

Silver Mansion

Poetry

S l o w l y , yet oozing danger, a spider trail-blazes the path to her silver mansion The one I, yawning and weary-eyed, visit on sleepless nights I shout— but there is no point in getting bewildered— I’m just tripping / I n t h i s i m a g i n a r y i m p l o s i o n o f m y s l e e […]

Wild One (Collab)

By Secret Bree and Vintage Black With a piercing  stare  and unquenchable  appetite—   I’m one   of the wild ones captivating  and  fierce Slowly  ever so vigilantly you approach  trying to embrace  me with  velvet  sounds    —Casting that wicked  magic  of a   wild  cat  whisperer—    Yet I’m not falling   prey  to your  taming  charms     Inevitably  you’ll fall  in lust   Everything else turning to dust against my sensual verses   Sweaty,  playful-  breathing,  […]

Stoned Verse

Poetry

Silver songs  and sombre sounds  like silent stories—  stoned, profound    Writing, boldly,  of wild, wild dreams,  this page all soaked  with bright, red ink    My tears pouring  down that page,  just drowning words with startled rage    While smoking,  writing,  dreaming,  stoned,    Those letters  blurring—  poems  I owned    My silver   song  so stoned  it fades    The story  inhabits  dark,   stark caves    Yet writing, boldly,  of wild, wild dreams,  that nearly burst   with […]

Broken Mirror

Poetry

I strived to collect the shattered pieces of your broken mirror The one you bought to catch a glimpse of your ailing soul I’d slowly arrange those crystal pieces into a living puzzle My hands got scarred, my heart, all aching— fearing one high toll My mind all floundered, just picking pieces off the cold ceramics My feet all naked, as I kept walking on that unswept floor * You yearned to collect the shattered […]

Rare Waters

Rare words, Wildly Running Through those Full lips—  Untimed The ones you Didn’t dare Open When trying To speak  Your riveting Lies Rivers  of sound Reverberating Through Silence, Flying arabesques Of the mind— In your dreams, So far away In that gloomy horizon Silent Words— Wildly pouring  through Tearful Sights Soft mounds, Rare waters— Some eerie Arabesque Light The one you Wouldn’t dare Shed— While plotting Your riveting Lies Silent words Soothing waters— And ghostly […]
