in memories a scintilla of faith

in the absences death has bequeathed me,

Premium Member Forget What Happed Between Us
My muse once sleeping is awake.
She was up long before daybreak
to catch the first long-distance bus.
“Forget what happed between us”.

She's been so nice to me last night
and so submissive that I might
have thought that she and I… Alas,
“Forget what happed...Read More

It's ok
Rage… that’s all have now,
The loss of what could have been, 
And the youth that will be affected.

Memories fragmented, pieced together…
By an imperfect mind
Information from others,
Filling gaps…

Misery is all I have now.
The loss of what could have been, 
The youth...Read More

Premium Member As This River Gives
As this river gives
Not giving a damn
Emptying the lake of hate
This ecosystem dies
But was it ever alive?
Surviving in my illusions
Confusions of my soul 
The depth of this sinkhole 
Without any reflections
Nothing to mention
Only the hollowing cries
Self-loathing and the denies
Saturated tears...Read More

Premium Member Enchanting Mother Fish
To find enchanting integrity,
She transparently confronts her disenchantments
with present and past toxic flow,
disempowering absences of synergetic experience,
like rape and enslavement and aggressive commodification,
disharmonic songs
without time and space
for proper therapeutic dance,
desecrating liturgies of everyday.

unveils what and where
and when and why
we belong...Read More

Hard Work
From long nights,
To hard work. 
I’ve put my best foot forward, 
Striding into my future. 

I’ve cancelled plans, 
Missed meals, 
And gone without sleep, 
But man this feeling. 
It’s one you can’t beat 

They say they’re proud.

I wonder sometimes if longing 
is no more or less than misplaced belonging,
on my list of absences
that are more honestly presences
we have deferred owning right now,
you and I,
Left with Right,
without even knowing this absence from each other.

Premium Member IN THE SMALL HOURS - Wole Soyinka
Blue diaphane, tobacco smoke
 Serpentine on wet film and wood glaze,
 Mutes chrome, wreathes velvet drapes, 
Dims the cave of mirrors. 
Ghost fingers
 Comb seaweed hair, stroke acquamarine veins
 Of marooned mariners, captives 
Of Circe's sultry notes.
 The barman
 Dispenses...Read More
