Beyond limits
Piles of thoughts wanting to be discovered
Loads of noises dying to be heard 

The soul is so full of colour
The face yet pale and duller

Who're you afraid of, mate? 
Is it society, or the fate? 

Why do you hide behind...Read More

I feel like a mine,trapped inside a box.
the more I try to free myself, the smaller it gets.
smaller and smaller
 tighter and tighter, till I feel it in my chest.
that tightness feels almost suffocating.
 almost wanna break open the bones...Read More

She was a fortress
Rock solid, determined
To stand strong 
Against any attack
But she turned the music up
While her king was in his counting house
It was far too loud
She danced on her walls
Flaunted herself, taunted
Received attention, even unwanted
Aware and unaware of her...Read More

Premium Member In poems, in prayers, in courage
When you are down, let it pass by.
Do nothing. Let words bleed in imagery
Speak nothing. Let silence float away..
Rephrase nothing. Let wisdom break the clichés within.

When you are down, let it pass by.
In poems, in prayers, in courage.

light break of the day
A hessian, giant face looks
whilst watching the moon
shining auroras
A little, giant fly looks
at the perfect moon
glared breaks of day
lone cloud, filled with rain water
falls from heaven host

As Roses Bloom
Roses for a Lover, Idealized

When you have become to me
as roses bloom, in memory,
exquisite, each sharp thorn forgot,
will I recall?yours made me bleed?

When winter makes me think of you?
whorls petrified in frozen dew,
bright promises blithe spring forsook,

Is a big deal! She intends to make the most of it.

Quelling the storm

When we break out
From the illusion of separation
To recognize our Identity which
Exceeds birth and death..
We can then experience the
Dance of mind and world
As spontaneous dreams arising
In our expansive Identity..
This is liberation
A quelling of the storm...

a bitter
ache to bear...

once starlight
in your hair...

a shining there
as brief
as rare.

a pain
I chose to bear...

the torrent
of your hair...

and show me
once again?
how rare.

Alone in my room,
Silence screaming at all ends,
I wish for companionship to mend,
But the mirror is my only friend.

Alone in my room,
Masking my loneliness with a smile at noon,
Hopelessly hoping affection may come soon,
But the moon is my only friend.

Oh! My Love Red is the color of a rose.

An event that surfers know too well,
for it visits upon them, time and time, again,
and upon its occasion, it is best to parley.
