Across Topography Of My Changed World

The day my life went haywire
I saw the storm clouds rush 
and cluster from nowhere.
The skeleton of the sunny sky 
tumbled down instantly devastated
in the debris of despair,
where the wounded gazelle lost its way,
for it could no longer sprint,
where the...Read More

Call of plea
The sun burning my skin, 
Not an inch of pain over the red.
My head keeps spinning 
yet pinned in a dead end. 

What I once saw as the future 
is now a cloud of dirt. 
One rain will be enough

Sad days;
Virus attacks-
Deaths daze.

Wash hands,
Stay quarantined-
Heed bans.

Slowed pace
Many unknowns-
Fears face.

Stupid Love
Grown so far
Tried of playing these games
Mind twister
Heartful of crack


It would be sweet dream
Embracing open arms
Making beautiful love
Under soft sky

Lifeless on cold hard floor
Every bad memory
Ghost from the past

Blaming myself
Too naive
Easy to believe
A big mistake

Why love can be hurtful
Cant love
But...Read More

But why, oh must I live alone
To look alone and give alone 
To cry alone and walk...Read More

life- a different way
Birth was given
Warmth was felt
not of the mother,
But of demise
she was loathed
For being a girl
A tender soul
Eliminated from life ,
without a chance
They both were 12,
With smiles aglow,while
He walked away in a crisp uniform
And she swept the floor,
Swept away the hidden...Read More

A Mother's Tears
A mother’s tears are born of love
her baby, soft and new
and with each touch, her joy regales
her eyes, a misty blue

A mother’s tears reflect her pride
her boy has started school
he’s growing fast, he’ll finish soon
her eyes begin to pool

Mother's love

One day at a time

Trees full of blossoms

Hear the birds singing

Earth awakening

Rest time is almost over


Now love all

Air renewed

Time is passing

Use what you have

Rejoice you made it

Everlasting changes

COVID-19, All in this Together
Will the COVID-19 headlines
be this year’s only claim to fame?

The hospitals, doctors and nurses
having to face such sad situations.

Yet so tasteless
How ravishing the queen of night is
But the Marias right on her face
How incredible moonlight is

Making a decision
A step forward

Saying yes or no
Weighing the pros and cons

Of the sacrifices and adjustment
In order to be there

Sometimes overwhelming
Away from your conscious

Dark Velvet
Can be scary
Not knowing
Where it leads

Doubts and uncertainties
In the depths
Endless maze

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

Comfortable in chaos
Finding solitude
Curtains around me

Why it is not there

I am ready to go

Desperate for freedom
Yet unable to

How long I have to carry

I cannot break free
Stuck in my head
Going backwards

Tied up in chains
Nothing to hold...Read More
