WEIRDEST WISPS

They met daily on Facebook And shared jokes via Twitter They saw each other on Instagram And chatted seriously via email While walls were their only distance A walking sadness on unfortunate path II And so the child grew by the teachings of the net And fell into its reckless bet with life His fingers […]

ONTO THE NEXT

So I craved a properly shaved Well chiselled face To be in my face and check my pace His fine red lips in loving sips His hairful hair In a fine trimmed dare I thought I had seen the perfect one Until he got under one bright lit sun Oh where is the half of […]

​SCARED OF LONELINESS

There are many roots beneath a single tree Yet it needs many others to break winds There are many brooms running and breaking free But their strength in numbers, all fear rescinds II Sometimes, even fecal worms, do space need Sometimes, even water, do drops be But a sea stands  more chance of waving at […]

CRYING BED (18+)

Another day pulls down its curtains Sending ghosts of nature To shepherd in flocks of day Into terrains public and private As a private candidate Eyes see the bed which cries out for you The bed which complains Of the wasted space many are dying for The bed whose eyes have lost Visions of two […]

WHEN COLD WHISPERS

When winds run errands of whispers To pores of unattached Hairs bare their fangs Like dogs in attacking mode But goosebumps give their protected out Cold wins in its test of need How sad II Cold has released its lions and lionesses To pounce on needs in this upper zone And ravage unowned lands Hunting […]

I STAND ALONE

I am a fruitful tree In my season I fruit in magnanimity Knowing no difference Between beaks,  hands and rot I feed them all II But years have painfully schooled Codifying I have been clearly fooled Even by those I thought I’ve cooled As my fruitful season has hosts Hosts greater than any audience From […]

SINKING SUN

The sinking sun rays The sad melodies of nightingales Wake owls with crowns of dreams Waking bats with thoughts of mischief II The dark will bark And mark my lack The yearns will bite And take my light Fears will guard And brand me bad As the night climbs mountains To get me through dawn […]

SINGLE TAUNTS

When night’s shadows beckon Loneliness holds a wire whip With an inward magical scar power To keep the mind company II Moon’s light turn taunt television To show the beautiful moments of others’ passions Shelving the worst dirts of coupling Making ease turn tears III Stars’ twinkles show the fantastic flutters The heart misses The […]

HEADS OF LONELINESS

Sounds of love blur ears of singleness Which seek its arrest by hatred While secretly hoping for its miracle But love is for those with traits of the sheep Traits of the dove Traits of swans Traits of the sun Traits of the moon And traits of cool breezes Not those consumed with the fierceness […]

THOUGHTS UPON THOUGHTS

I stand a sinner Chasing thoughts making me thinner Racing heart causing me breakage As unknown tomorrows sing me songs II I don’t know I don’t know if the heads white leaves Will showcase me tomorrow Still two handed instead of three III I don’t know I don’t know if this mud’s wrinkles Will showcase […]

UNLOVED

Poor kitten with no hands to build Scared little thing in the winds Hungry little thing facing the storms What will you do if it rains? II The trees are protecting birds The caves are protecting lions Holes are protecting rats and snakes Oh, anthills protect even ants and others Where do you belong poor […]

TICKLING NIGHT

The night is tickling With ringing passions Passions soaring on eagle wings And having flings with loneliness II Sky looks high at the sighs Breezes whisper in gossips Waiting anxiously for the complete lonely season As I lose all my reasons III As the stars pray And the moon displays all shameful longings, Fireflies pull […]

HIS EMPTY SIDE CREEKS (HAIKU)

WHEN LUSTFUL THOUGHTS GET BOLD

When the weather gets cold Lonely bubbles get bold And show on skins Like standing fins On fishes II Then they call on past thoughts  Thoughts the body bought With time and buried And needs ferried  By regret III Like waves, tears fight back Goosebumps get stacked I need an antidote I get on a […]

PAINFUL VISIONS

The huge tree cries It cries for its loneliness It sees it all House them all. When the moon lights its eyes And darkness whistles, They come in pairs. Many swing Many dance Many kiss many lie Many sit Just making each other reflective mirrors The hurtful of all Is when many fight Go, come […]

SEPARATED SWANS

A DOVE WITH LOVE

A dove with love Fears nothing from above This dove is like the banished Living love famished Flying alone sends chills through the bones Something nature condones When the air whispers The trees in pleasure stroke their whiskers And the dove feels worse Where is its half? Could this be a curse? Hope of a […]

FITS OF APOPLEXY

The day felt cold My pride felt old My eyes and mind run wild My emotions run wild The beehive was stirred by a stick   I took the wheels without eyes Rejecting all the worried eyes, Met the sun, Which asked why I run I looked but saw not and trashed the sun   […]

THE GHOST OF MY GRANDMOTHER

AN EMPTY HOUSE

I wake to a void An emptiness and an ache I am like the calabash without content, The river without water, The house without a tenant, The president without citizens, The bulb without light, The beautiful valley without lilies To what end can a smile travel to my face?   If only donkeys knew the […]

WORRYING SOLITUDE IN THE MULTITUDE

In this crazy multitude I aim to lend this story I’m living some verisimilitude ‘Life is how you make it’ is a now a boring platitude In the noise, I cringe at the seeming solitude Sometimes, I sit in gratitude Even though like the blind tomorrow’s happenings I know not in exactitude My heart breeds […]

UNSEEN EMBRACE

Seclusion in abundance An unhappy witch’s handicraft, perhaps Collusion of voices of annoyance Amidst vocals painting great ambience Still secluded, a bad spirit’s doing perhaps. Blow me cold, blow me hot Blow me right, blow me left, perhaps A good embrace awaits somewhere Somewhere these eyes see not To pull me to safety with a […]

JACK THE BORE

I am tired of living with Jack Frost Who blows, taunts, jabbers and queerly sings Even when goosebumps in surrender raise their wings He laughs and gains more strength to frost   Honey, come and let’s sack Jack Frost I’m tired of being his puppet even during springs He puffs and hardens and makes me […]

NEEDY CRAVINGS

PHANTASMA

UNFORTUNATE STRANGER

CHASING-FEARS

In these four corners I surreptitiously crawl Shutting mute entries with a threatening brawl While the banners of thoughts are rooted in my head’s corners   In this dark self-confine I ruminate, no, I contemplate On whether to zap out this life and put it on a plate For those with stochastic opinions that will […]

THIS TIME OF COLD
