THIS IS NOT A POEM

…you think my unripe lips blossom with words just to make merry with mad metaphors of the muse mesmerising marooned minds with aching alliterations? Sick similes bleeding to death Like blood gushing out from harrowed hearts From the ceaseless stabs of this knife called pen? There are shadows, there are skeletons – shadows and skeletons… Continue reading THIS IS NOT A POEM

SON’S SONG SUNG

It’s all so wrong Condemnation of the mind So I’m scribbling this letter To make it all better These words might sound sad Like goodbye forever But they‘re only meant to bring you blessings Think of me from now wherever you are Don’t cry, but laugh in hope, son, ‘Cause hope is all we have… Continue reading SON’S SONG SUNG

LIFE LOOM

OVERCOME (by WRRPoetry Poet of The Week)

My heart weeps stinging tears As the sun strolls through my path, With strong, burning pleasure. Gaping silence yawns in my soul Thriving and fawning, keeping me mute, Confused by a million voices Deep within, only fear is left It rapes my heart, it stills me, Knocks me down with boldness! But bravery peeps through… Continue reading OVERCOME (by WRRPoetry Poet of The Week)
