Corona Virus 3 Feet,6 Feet
Have you heard
Of the ravaging virus?
That equal leveller;
That conforms everyone to the same corner
Some say it is the disease of the rich;
Some say it is for the poor,
Just like John 10:10
Its aim is to kill,destroy and devour.

Please stay at home,

Secrets Unsaid
Suffocating sanity 
Thoughts of you
Being too long
Without you

What ifs
With the heavy hidden words
That never reach you

Being afraid
Embarassment and self blame
Asking for trouble
Though it is love

Cautious consideration
Like status, age , colour
Eventhough it should not matter

But cannot help
As these doubts will...Read More

How perfect life is
Yet so tasteless
How ravishing the queen of night is
But the Marias right on her face
How incredible moonlight is
But she's bride
Only the of few luckiest nights

Flowers are alluring
But they sag
Even the sky turns white
On a hot summer day

Every...Read More

Black Friday
Black Friday

So here we are again
My reflection and I
The worst of friends
As we’ve always been

Surely nothing could be better
I am a happily married man 
With a beautiful wife
And a lovely child

But something has grown
Out of the unknown
A latent energy

A mysterious
Creeping...Read More

A darkness came over me, 
covering me with grey
Making my sun die on that 
dark depressing day
My soul feeling it was 
slowly suffocating too
Another essence called 
out to mine true

Fighting through darkness 
reaching through a mist
Found the other essence
blowing it...Read More

I write this, broken.
I’m suffocating.
I’ve finally been paid back.
For the hurt I have inflicted.
So here I am.
Ready to confess.
For a promise,
Has broken me.

Here it is.
This moment was bound to happen.
I feel cold.
So cold.
So much happiness.
So much hope.
All destroyed,
In one moment.
Because...Read More

i've noticed everytime i go out of state 

today, there is no escaping a toll

why are we so casually docile

when it comes to our freedom being stole

we systematically give some stranger 

our money just to ride on the road

Premium Member Trapped
My life is so depressing
I feel trapped, in need of space
I need some fresh air to breathe
A gentle breeze touching my face
A taste of freedom to make me feel whole
Instead of suffocating in this human goldfish bowl

Premium Member The Forest, Never to Return
March came in like a lion
And never let up, not really 
The children, Markie and Stu, spent most of their day outside
Except, usually, for a quick lunch and a hurried hug

In the country, the darkness is like a blanket
It covers...Read More

The Soul
She knows not, when she was made
To wear the shekels, and rest in pain

It's been ages since she opened those eyes 
Which are lying under so many layers

She can see but the windows are not her own 
She can hear...Read More

A Cry From the Dungeon after Lexi Green
Lord I’m tied up
Crying from this dungeon
Oh! I need anything now but your redemption 
Hold my hands Lord, pull me from this frustration 

I’m on my kneels 
Lord, Crying in this dungeon 
Look down on me and hear my supplication
I’m...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

Premium Member Melancholic Melodies
Surrounded by strange blank faces, 
pianist plays a medley of melancholic melodies,
magnifying our sorrows, as we close our eyes.

Just one more, before I leave,
yet I wonder, should we stay or should we go,
for the heart has no desire for trodden...Read More

Sinking in lies, suffocating in life 
All a trap by a thought meant to wreak 
Meant to bring awe in those who felt blind
Hope in those who felt lost to despair
A fighting chance to those who were about to...Read More

In this dark cage of Lies,
I'm dangerously trapped inside.
The butterflies have flown away,
No longer does this soul sway.
Anger, Pains, Hatred,
Now my heart is left damaged.
Deception, Betrayal, Lies were thrust upon,
Still a mask of happiness I put on.
Agony, Depression, Insanity I...Read More

The past that is never to happen again

so you could move on, then you ought
to fail and stuck in the same life
as a result you will blame yourself for things
you could and couldn't control and there is nothing you...Read More

although diminutive.
Submerged with a purpose,
under pressure with a plan.
Alone, and confused.
Which way is up, which way is down? 
Suffocating with darkness all around.
Scared to live yet afraid to die.  My instincts Emerge. 

Predestined to live I fight, out of...Read More

Anxious vibes
Crippling anxiety 
Tearing away from sobriety 
How else do you get through? 
Attempting not to give in 
Struggling to grin 
And bare the macabre 
Heart racing 
Stomach pacing
It’s like a marathon run 
That never ends 
Suffocating feeling
Sounds congealing 
The scars...Read More

Premium Member Could I ever Be Free
Summer hot and sultry,
I stood in my overcrowded greenhouse,
suffocating as if I were in a steam bath.
The summer orchids bloomed,
especially the cattleyas,
the undisputable queens.
They all exuded perfumes,
according to their hues.
Predominant the violet dictated,
while the yellows stood subdued.
Fern plants stood...Read More

Premium Member like tinsel from trees

on my windows
this frostwork
from last night's sketches
my vision
like death
my heart

my spirit
of holiday merriment
was yanked
like tinsel
from trees
and castaway
in the fragments
of yesteryears
long passed

i feel this wind
as it wraps around me
with the same chill
as death's own hands
suffocating me
as i try to stand
on worthless...Read More

Breathes sigh of relief

precariously rested squarely and unfairly
upon mine figurative lead

and bony shoulders, that said
