Where is her tiny Black dress? The one  She wanted to Wear that E v e n i n g A dress of Fancy, Bitter, Sweet and Dark-tinged V e r s e Prose-dyed, Vague-styled, But, still, Written with Her, I n  u n i s o n Neither  Of them Wanting  To die A verse-less  D e a t h For this,  They together  Caress, An achingly D a r k ,  —  B […]

Fragments of deep verse Washing ashore Yet the lyrical tempest Hasn’t even S t a r t e d In this rough and slumbering, Wetly dry and Wicked, Late summer of slow w o r d s Wake up, W o r d S t o r m e r Have you ever dreamed of such a late, And furious, Timeless, Fateful, Somber, Fearsome, Word S t o r m ?

these days i feel too mild to grasp life with a mordacious bite i lose my pencils easily and i permanently misplace my pens and pads my words end up stored away in fridges, where i’d rarely look, Alas! lest I turn ravenous with rhyming lust my lazy verses, in arrears, they become tears of m o d e r o b goodbye steam lettering on a hot bathroom       M     […]

By Amber @Diosraw & Vintage Black We nursed those pixelated lilies back to WordPress life Time travelling the technicolor cyberspace Birthing new data nova blossoming ripples The way our readers would love them to sway and rhyme Forever poetically entwined like old 'net souls, Smelling them, after one hell of a poet hard day's night Those petals never smelled so beautiful, their aroma, yet untouched Frozen in the liquid space of virtual landscapes Traceable as […]

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 […]
