Shades of Silence

When all you can do is scream A certain kind of self sabotage Only because you don’t allow yourself to be heard You walk around in all different colors In a light, so dim Unnoticed Shades of black and grey bleed inside Silently So quietly that you’d confuse drowning with simply fading away And that…

Circus Tickets

“It’s hard to crawl out of my head” You said… I get it Yet, your reasoning sickens me Come one, come all For the circus is on tonight Funny It’s funny how those who act like lions are the very ones eaten by their own thoughts When I was green and blue and creased, And…

I’m No Poet

I’m no poet Though I play with words The same way you play me My silent need to provoke To earn what? Since any attention is positive And neither is something I gain from you I went out looking for you today Through red and yellow of spring Though imagined Almost if seeing grayscale Was…

Like Open Fire

Feeling warm on a cold day is a skill They say suffering is a choice But my suffering is an open battle The bleeding. The dying. And the yelling won’t cease When you’re told you’re like an atomic bomb Detonated, and everything’s gone When you feel like a stampede Like a forest fire Like open…

Twelve glass stars in June

It’s like the ocean Incessant The way it washes over you An hourglass moment Before you taste, saline By then, the universe is dark Infinite shards of glass You’re alone, It’s vast, It’s cold You no longer feel your legs For you’ve forgotten they’re even there And so you let the waves take you Beyond…

210903

What’s it called when you feel everything and nothing all at once? I don’t think I’ve ever understood “forever” until that day Memory is a time travelling machine There I am As I approach your corner Red brick under a bright clear future inviting me to see that sea of red While your mother attempts…

Lilith

There once was a woman who lived in fear She wrapped all her memories and kept them near She boarded the windows and locked all the doors She bleached all the bedrooms and mopped all the floors She lingered awhile ‘cos she knew he was there All covered in dirt but so unaware There’s blood…

The Ambivalence of Love

As we contemplate every breath Its purpose, raw like cold air We’re faced with truths Naught but others’ perception When you’re caught in vines And too weak to let loose From his touch Burning. Deleterious Stares, harsh as headlights from an impatient motor humming in the distance Choices you have to make As vulnerable as…

Lead Glass Rubies

That’s another mark I carve To prove I’m still here As I draw the line And the wall starts to crumble I feel the warm liquid, rapid Like rage The light hits They’re like glittering rubies Mesmerising Rhythmic, as they hit the ground And then I feel something… So I reach for the bandages. Mj…

10:09

I think it’s easy to forget that in this vessel we are passengers We’re just passing through We are the navigators of our borrowed lives We seem to forget that We are lost Strays in our own personal universe Too big to comprehend Too small for it to be enough It is easy to bypass…

The Paradox of an Untrusting Mind

They say the best way to learn trust Is to allow yourself to fall Into someone else’s arms What they don’t tell you about Is the dozen broken bones You’re left with when you’re done     Copyright © All Rights Reserved. All Images were taken by me unless stated otherwise
