in roaming streams

of death’s journey

so much

more poignant

to lose a beloved

to the soundless

 laugh of love

the scent of

your absence

with ravenous


on mental shores

of solitude


my pain wears

the mask

of a virgin

Impressions of you

as mist drips

in strands

under her shaky


drawn on the canvas

of their love

with flaming azure

from her veins

violent red passion

from her heart

in fragile lacuna

between breath

and muse

just listen




as she bleeds

into the night

with only


of him

the crescent moon

through murky skies

sparkle her light

on my salty face

as if

she could lift

me up

in embrace

and kiss me


ad interim

I sit here

in a poem

of reminisce


you touched me

with kindness

and mirth




– love –

meandering dreams

in angelic flight

entwined forever

Silent wings

musings of emotions

of fervor and love

unpropitious moments

and the cosmos cracks

unlock the chains

deep within my soul

for closure has no music

no notion in its path

a new dawn arrives

as it lingers in lacuna

no rainbows in orbit

just an empty melody

bearing on the wings

of a withered butterfly

convoluted maze

tears mixed with mud and blood

dwindled in the dust

Broken wings

like a little butterfly

with faded, broken wings

in its armored shell

waiting for the light of day

innocence in time was lost

scattered in the wind of storm

with bleeding hearts we smile

while everything turns to dust

and in the depths a melody

sprinkled on a thousand hills

as time slowly creeks by

What you read is what I feel...

How I write, is mine...How you read, is yours

Most of us feel it, some don't. Some of us say it, some don't. Some may agree, some won't. Be as it may, the facts still remain.
