The color blue turns red in the moonlight.

Melancholy finds ways to be your vision

Premium Member Aunty Had a Stroke

Her body fell sideways -
Stayed there
She gurgled as if she were
Reciting a love poem
Through a storm drain

She never complained
Nor did she forgive

She plowed her mind
Ahead of her wheelchair
Gray hair electrified
With aftershocks

Burning rubber all the way

There was a fountain in an African desert.
Long ago it ceased to exist for the tropical heat,
But its subterranean canals were intact;
And one day, when the earth was hot indeed,
The dry surface of the ground panted like a mare.

There came...Read More

Voyage Below
Say goodbye to the old days
Wave goodbye to the old ways
Sinking towards the bottom of the ocean
Ditching the tides of tribulation and commotion

Sinking way down below
The dolphins stride ride
Drifting into the deep tide
Of darkness since eons ago

Drowning rapidly
I can’t elevate

If only you knew...
What it feels like...
To be neglected like a rusty, old bike...

I'd cry a thousand fountains
Just to see you flourish 
That is my only wish

My ego is misunderstood
I'm on my...Read More

Paw print
Cafted in purity through the veins of the Serengeti

Keep Pressing On
You and I were meant to be for an eternity
Nothing is going to be in the way of that
