Faithless. A haunting. #poetry and prose

Before you read this, I wish you to know, That hope lies within us all, That the greatest keeper of hope is faith, And that through faith, we draw strength to face the darkest of trials. Despite our beliefs. Faithless (A haunting) Drip… Drip… Fear falls and tears drop No leaps to take No faith…

The Perfect love

Love is warm. It thaws the ice in our hearts, And cradles our lonely souls. Make a love wish! What kind would it be? Once, a girl loved a boy. Once, she bared her soul to him. Once, he filled that missing piece. How that love consumed! Burning everything around Friends could not get close…

Being positive in a negative world #poetry and prose

Some places speak distinctly. Certain dark gardens cry aloud for a murder; certain old houses demand to be haunted; certain coasts are set apart for shipwrecks. When inklings of foreboding disperse, Instinct dulls the colours all round, Fear taints nature’s beauty, And trepidation turns all things gray. But sometimes there is nowhere left to go…

A Splash of Love #writephoto

He does not love, he hates, Injustice, indifference, immorality. Guilt dogs his every step. Sorrow for what has been done, And what is yet to come.

Pandemic Romance #poetry and #prose

Forget me not

What do you see #40 The world beyond the veil The veil not many know If ye be spiritual Ye must believe If ye be not Ye need only to feel Do you sense it at times Do you notice Those odd things that happen When what’s even is not given When one does not…

Secret Admirer

Is it your smile that dazzles me The softness of your voice that comforts me The light in your eyes scrying my future joys Am I selfish for thinking you are the answer Presumptuous for dreaming you can want me too I’d like to tell you- I’m under your spell I’d like to speak my…

Forbidden Aspirations

What have I become When true comfort lies in discomfort When to be real, I need to hide When safety is but an illusion My refuge looms upon a despondent cliff Pale white with dark soulless windows The raging sea below- mirrors the turbulent clouds above An atmosphere hued in gray despair For when thunder…
