What Is In A Name?

Name to start with has alpha.bets

Assembled together to make some.sense

Though if language unknow then it sounds non.sense

Still a name is important cause it's common.in.sense

 

A name defines your personality that is what some.say

The name you have suggests your religion and.nationality

Although in a global village where we live today names have no.mind

Leave Us The Moon

 

Men on the Moon

have come and gone

yet moon remains

to earth belongs

 

What would be Earth

without its light

less love and magic

in the night

 

Oh not despair

the moon is ere

our guiding light

and always there

 

Our light of lights

lets lovers swoon

just let it be

leave us the moon.

Tiny soul

Sunday,21st July 2019

 

Where do I stand?

I am unable to understand

this hollow sky with a vast horizon

where do I find heaven?

 

this tiny soul on earth

lives with the constant fear of death,

not in a position to take an easy breath

as materialistic hunger loses the faith

 

life might have some purpose

but how to choose?

amidst confusion

a slip of a girl

a slip of a girl

 

Her body is enticing

Like a bud not yet a flower

Unashamedly in the shortest of short

Clinging to her plummy bum

Dance into my cafe.

Soon she will be a beautiful

Woman bursting with poise

She will get much attention

Some unwanted

Then one day she will

Fall into a man

A flower in his lapel

She doesn’t know that this

Her adolescence

No other way to feed his unfortunate child.

Blood, not a drop allowed to waste, meat, sickening yet juicy sweet

One Final Hurt

entry picture

Every now and then, we find a band aide to cover a wound on our soul

As soothing as it seems, we must pay the toll

for it will eventually begin to peel

and in anticipation of the pain we will feel

our muscles tense and our jaws clench

until it is pulled off all at once

like an assassin’s attack with no alert

one final hurt

 

To recover, we sleep as thunder rumbles its wa...

Love Kills The Best of Us

Oh little boy how obsessed with a little lights you were
Glowing little bugs keeping you from the edge
Oh what their princess the most beautiful lights you've seen
Now they're all gone and you're on the edge of suicide
No remedy for the mind
No amount of blood could poor to make you feel pain
I guess the melancholy got you
I guess the summer hits you like a truck
The emotions make you feel...

Living life with everything you own stuffed into bags, two of them, dragging yourself

Living for that hour on the phone, once a day where you can really breathe

By blind luck or some odd chance I stand barefoot on this cold, tile, floor,

Coughing out the last drag of a cigarette, waiting for the last...

Egg, caterpillar, chrysalis, butterfly

This natural magic of transformation

Can happen to you too. Time makes you

More beautiful. Human metamorphosis

Liberates souls. Such a rare achievement

Requires an emptying of the mind

A deep (and often painful) compassion.

Defeat your expectations;

Free yourself from what is expected and you will see

The passing beauty of a butterf...

Persephone lay tangled

In my bed-clothes.

I watched trapezoids

of summer light

make motes

alive in her warmth.

 

I leant against the wall

and counted her breaths:

 

Pale and shallow her rising.

Her hair webbed.

and

gripped to her belly

my gown

since last she bathed.

 

I lowered my case

and loved her more.

WEEKLY WALKABOUTSVERSE, E.G., 79 OF 230: PIE IN THE SKY?

entry picture

Poem 79 of 230: PIE IN THE SKY?

From our early childhood,
We’re taught to glorify
Conquering the Earth’s neighbourhood -
Shouldn’t we question why?

Satellites can aid siblinghood,
But some missions could buy
A start for millions to make good -
Is Mars “pie in the sky”?

I know better than to wait until I am pushed

I remember standing on the edge
At the top of that 200 foot tower,
Officer A announcing that the turn was now mine.
With every ounce of courage my body could muster,
My feet left that solid ground
And my stomach hit my throat.
I clung to that rope, knowing deep down
It would not fail me, but fearing the worst nonetheless.
It's that sinking feeling of sure sudden death,
That every cell in ...

DIVERSE

Is it me just being perverse

But when I see or hear the word diverse

It brings on feelings of ennui

Where and when I happen to be

And the suspicion things'll get worse.

Darkness and light

The clutter of

insecurities, phobia and nightmare,

in my heart, 

Can't reject you anymore. 

I accept them. 

The way I accept,

confidence, strength and dreams.

To keep the balance,

for realistic approach.

Darkness and light, 

both makes me a human, 

perfection blended with streaks of flaws. 

Accepting them was  my first step

towards accepting myself.

End Times

People these days treat sin better than their very own kin,

we make an enemy of our friends.

Night is day and day is night, what was wrong,

Is dangerous, mindlessness is safe, strength is a threat, being

On finding his fish

rooted to the spot

recalls his smoothed soul

With purest open heart

Negativity now depart

In beauty walking

Inner voice talking

Cleansed, whole

All actions all thought

Transformation undergo

To understand, to know

It seems a little nasty but it's true,

Last night while I was making love to you,

    I was thinking of another,

    And that other was your mother,

Who I slept with back in 1992.

 

I think it's fair to say that I was mad,

And bonding with you bordered on the bad,

    Yes, I cannot help confessing

    Our caressing was distressing

As I'm pretty sure I'm probably your ...

They are often easy to answer, and,

Perfect is giving all of you to everything you do,

Perfect is achieving success no matter the sacrifice,

Perfect is the absence of flaws.

 

But I am not perfect.

impossible to regurgitate.

Ocean eyes

If you really knew me,

Maybe you'd see,

Through my drowsy blue eyes

Into a raging sea.

 

Like crows, your sight flies

to the sparkling sheen coating my irises,

The glimmer of a thousand tiny pearls.

 

But they are a legacy,

Far too romantic for the tidal wave that

Dumped them in my world.
