There are so many me’s inside my head,
there is no room for flight or fancy.
The souls swirl around leaving imagination an outcast.

I shed myself every day,
minute by moment a new me is born.
I’ve let go of many of my selves...Read More

The gorillas came at night
tented in the middle of the big square
of the city
around the statue
that I don’t remember what its name was?


People were awakened at night
from the bad smell
that had covered the entire city.

They were afraid of choking

HEARTBROKEN

Our love was a beautiful ride,
You were once a beautiful bride.
My heart you suffocated,
that can't be resuscitated.

You buried my love away,
money has now lead you astray
My heart is being squished to death,
and I can't catch my breath.

feel myself slipping under
suffocated by the smiles and laughter
my voice vanishes the moment I'm alone
watching the world pass
all I needed was for someone to see
someone to notice me missing
breathe air into my lungs
short compressions
the presence of my friends
brush against me

The Choice is never Ours
The world was on fire, no one could save me but you - "Chris Isaak - Wicked Game"
Yes, the world was on fire,
Set ablaze by those powers ruling over us all
And I, stood there,
Drenched in sweat,
Wanting to vomit, feeling suffocated,

I am positive mindset

I'm your rescuer

Lifting you from the ground
So you can touch the cloud
And see what lies beyond

Covering the broken pieces like  a duvet

Nobody noticed her pain and resourceful depression

As façades piled onto charades of deceitful appearance

	She cut a pattern onto her skin with razor blade strokes

Her innocent blood oozed a translucent shine of despair

In her mind she was not even worthy of...Read More

A Month Ago
October 22

A month ago today,
But who’s counting
Only our family,
Our pain,
Our sorrow
And life keeps going.
Life remains unfair
It completely sucked out the beauty
And now the darkness is a new reality
Somedays are easier,
A smile lets loose
Then days I am suffocated with grief
Remembering who...Read More

Missed opportunity
Want my love 
toss it away
made a mockery of
The emotions that was 
Present,
Devalued pre-judging
Shallow spirit played you
Played yourself 
Took for granted Gods gift
Stripped of your birthright 

Stuck on a hamster wheel
Hamster wheel of toxicity 
Sold your soul for 
30 pieces...Read More

Mary King’s Close

Set underneath the cobbles
Below the Royal Mile
The close is dimly lit
You can visit there awhile

Go back into the past
Explore the narrow wynds
Live the overcrowding
Get inside their minds

Look out for scurrying rats
As they scavenge to survive
A battle of the...Read More

If you look into my eyes and you just happen to find 
that the smile I put on is not true to what is inside, 
just know that I have walked on broken glass each day of my life.

another sky disappears
there are no more doors 
only stars in a window 
a splendid reflection
the avalanche of reminisce
feeding suffocated wishes
hopeless severed lines 
call the waste of time 
lost fear stays obscure 
the darkness ever tied 
across my eyes
the shadows jump...Read More

THE FIGURE IN THE MIRROR

Standing all alone for an unknown time,
The Caracal pistol in my right hand was fully loaded
But I couldn’t fire a shot.
Half choked by a rising paroxysm of rage,
And half-suffocated by his triumph,
I stared unseeingly but he was still there.

I should...Read More

Concinnity
Now burst forth your long-suffocated song, 
You gagged lips with mute anthems sweet! 
Speak of your celestial lays with angels high
In stillest skies above men's unmusical beat.

Say which den under heaven's serenest wings 
Writhes most chargrined by tart mortal things....Read More

Life can be funny and fun
Funny and fun life can be

Once I lived as red bull meat
The poor loved me wholesale
While the rich crashed and mingled me

I was alcoholic liquor for a while
I made sure my friends had red eyes
Unfortunately fights were all over

a dream creeps sultry while I sleep
   whispering      a balmy breath

unintelligible invitations to

a lazy labyrinth where the lost
prowl    reach awkwardly 
for themselves

there in its midst
we are born

THOU PRECIOUS AND GUILTLESS NIGERIAN BLOOD
The whips of smoke was thickly spiraled all over my face,
 I stood at the shrine, rather the church,
 The eerie and somber silence within the cave scourged me,
 As the nocturnal owls spoke cabalistic monologues,
 Ushering in a hint...Read More

  From the gap, the heavens birthed a winged humanoid unlike any,

Dreams can come true even if it is just brief
Her tender caress suffocated my spirit
Her virtuous vitality started a flame
I felt real joy when I called her name
She was the epitome of purpose and
I was the one who climbed out of the tomb of despair

The mystery of Time always...Read More
