An angel's campfire
just beyond the virgin horizon
where dreams are sown and born..
as sky stones skip across the night
in timeless godly light
where miracles from afar
seek out the wounded heart
to buoy them to calming cays
that lie between bloody storms
of hopelessness-of souls aflame

Down a slope of reason and emotion dressed in gloves and mask

Loud voices
Rowdy minds
I get so afraid when I see them fight
Will I exercise?
Tomorrow,I will open a bag of rice
And call some wise men to show me the Eastern star
Which will lead us to afar
That's how must punish these boys.

The showers during summer
When I lie on my bed

Worrying about the world

I feel depressed 

And my temper goes high

But strangely during summer

The rain poured down

To cool my boiling temper;

It was the most beautiful thing.

One who doesn’t love

The smell of sand during rains

Is ought...Read More

Dancing with full of grace,
She led them to trance.
With her beautiful smile,
She enchanted them with her style.

For each beat,did they sing,
As delighted as the ones for the new blooming...Read More

The way your eyes 
Tracing me
From head to toe

Memorizing every detail of me
Mesmerizing the uniqueness

Used to being invisible
Only from afar
To see such sight

With hopes of passing time under darkening nightmare;

Silent act of lightening candle

And wondering at the luminating shadows
