Dark Velvet
Darkness
Can be scary
Not knowing
Where it leads

Doubts and uncertainties
In the depths
Endless maze

Growing 
Nightmares
Deeply hallucinated
In my mind

Part from reality
Part from fantasy
All at the same time

Deep in my thoughts
Making me 
Modern Frankenstein
Dead and alive
Looking insane

Yet 
Comfortable in chaos
Finding solitude
Curtains around me

Numb
No longer feeling...Read More

cats are evil creatures from space
cats
are evil creatures
from outer space

who can understand
their alien thoughts
where they came from
and why are they here

are they part of an advanced team
will the cats some day
take over the world
and turn us into their slaves

I have no answer

FEELINGS WHILE QUARANTINED
Sudden fear struck by body
And I could barely breath
Move or speak
When I first heard about
The corona virus and
All its destruction
It's even scarier to
Believe that it's in
Your city and your town
What makes it even worse is
That I don't know who it

IN TIMES LIKE THESE
Midst enhanced community quarantine…
my soul earnestly seeks the Lord
Whose throne of grace door never closes
as He hears my supplication of faith-shout 
that pandemic-caused lock down cannot silence.

Despite social distancing rigorously enforced…
my heart intimately draws nigh to the Saviour
Whose presence sweetly...Read More

When you can dance
Don't walk

Don't just wear out passion

Quarantine such an ugly word
Unlike any other 
All at home 
Regardless of desires
No where to go 
That is the worst part of it 
In fact enforced staying at home
Not to bad
Especially I have you by my side

Ever wondered how it happens?
How the last person stays, 
How they make sure, everyone else gets out?

Ever wonder why?
Is that important? 
As long as we are safe, 
does it really matter who sacrificed;
or more specifically or…
even more importantly what...Read More

Curse willful ignorance for the rusty chains it brings
Reigning in imagination’s course
Shuttering up heart and soul alike.

Don’t be afraid, hiding, not knowing something
For knowledge is an open, free river
Be well afraid of not learning in its currents.

Else understanding forever stands...Read More

Boys
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.

Clouds Hanging Over Me
Clouds Hanging Over Me

dark clouds, ominous
feelings of dread swamping
me with foreboding
unable to get my breath
anxiety leading to yet another
panic attack to
disarm me
detach me from myself
alone and afraid I am
losing my mind
certain it has happened in
the past
confident no one notices
that there...Read More

She is alone
Hoping to be loved
By a man

The one who loves her
For all she is
Good, bad and ugly

Wounded in battle scars 
Across her fragile heart
Her mind traumatized 

Builds her highest defense
With hidden traps
Not get into her again

Prosecuting trespassers 
With sharp...Read More

Staring deeply though the windows of my inner man

Fear not
How?
Dare
Dare what?
Everything you don't know
Everything you don't show
Not a place 
Not a fight
It is everything you don't know about yourself

It transcends your ego
An overflow of desires

Distraught
Always be more to learn
Quickly adapt 
Crushing timelines

Hard to keep up
No matter how much I ask
Still being back 
Where I started

Confused of important or urgent
Cannot make a difference
When everything pushes me
In all directions

Pressue cooker
Waiting to explode
Need to breathe and cry
