White Tears

comments 10
Poetry

I die A thousand Deaths, And cry A thousand Tears Inky drops Become Soft crease— On coarse skin, Renewed Fears I write This very Poem To tattoo it On your Skin White ink Is so translucent— Such a Slight, Poetic Sin I die A thousand Deaths, And cry A thousand Tears If only I’d read this On my palm— To get prepared For life’s exam But fact is, History Tells me, You can’t Read Between […]

Skin puzzle  Dismantled  In pieces  It breaks  A myriad of   Heartbreaks  A billion  Blue tapes    I turn on   The radio  My mind gets  All buzz  My eyes get   All blurry  My heart   Gives a blast  The mike   Switches on  No words  Old travail  I clear my mind  My voice  Won’t obey    Skin puzzle  Dismantled  In pieces  It breaks  A myriad of   Heartbreaks  A billion  Blue tapes    They give you an answer  You […]

Electric Child

She was born An electric year Blank was her canvas Gone with the wind A hectic mind And fragile skin Tears of dust Heading to the Gold horizon Electric to touch And buzzing with Flying verse Dressed in cord pants Chunky brown shoes Curls down To her ears Eyes⁠—wiser than Her years Tears of dust Heading to the Gold horizon Electric to touch And buzzing with Flying verse She was born To a bird of […]

Slowly, slowly, You approach me Little creature Of the night I behold those Fancy feelings Wicked wizard Warm at heart? Slowly, slowly, I approach you Please don’t bite me Let me roam free Lion tamer Suave enchanter Got seduced by Your spider fang Softly gifting Piercing heartaches Wicked creature Golden night Slowly, slowly, You reproach me Swift-tonged monster Full of might I might leave this Fancy figment, Feathered, foamed, Velvet stream at heart I still […]

Poem Interruptus

Poetry

I often feel flustered with your never-ending sweet-toothed verses You are endowed with some greatly magical tricks Yet your poem interruptus meter often leaves me all cold and bothered Fact is, I'll never get sonnet-pregnant with your words 'Cause you always pull out your rhymes at the very last minute There is never enough time to come into ode-full moans and sighs My daylight dreams are all flustered and my imagination drawn to ecstatic snippets […]

By Secret Thoughts Within and Vintage Black I am your only late night listener,  Savoring your words spoken  Over and over,  Alone in the blackness.   Messages played on loop In the radio host sound  Of your voice,  I tune in to enjoy  Yet another twilight sample. Your poetic mixtape Of descriptive drunken words Makes perfect sense To my late-night soul, So, I dial in every sunset.   Alas! That intoxicating oeuvre, Over and over I play it as I live […]

Blue Cinderella Rock Song

Poetry

Flying crazy  And loopy sounds  Those loony tunes  House breaking moulds  Silver tights  And bright blue shoes  A light of fancy  A daring spy    A ruthless dream  A tearful song  A seamstress  Stream  Ten hours,  Gone  You’ll never text  Too sad,  Too bad,  Forget, forget  A fearless sight  Smells of ashes  Speed of light  True singalong  Tap dancing night  To loony tunes  A daring spy  A flight of fancy,  A seamstress  Stream  Too mad […]

By Secret Thoughts Within and Vintage Black A true wild heart A fine glass of wine With steadfast resolve I walk all divine   Keep walking good warrior And never look back Those trolls, demons, Vampires Deep love They do lack   Honey, I've lived my life I know the road you are on I'll share my secrets To keep your heart strong   Lay hold of pure light Let go of perfection These wrinkles and lines […]
