They’re waiting to pounce and I know it
They want to smuggle...Read More

Inside me
The world is noisy
Opinions and judgments
My truth is drowned out inside me

The world is bossy
Conditions and commandments
My will is overlooked inside me

The world is cosy
Stages and ambience
My comfort is disregarded inside me

The world is nosey
Forms and surveillance
My profile is misrepresented...Read More

Love Letter From The Soul XLVI

As I lay still in the darkness 
before dawn shakes off her sleep, 
my fingers excitingly caress 
the beauty of your cheeks

Build desalination plants

An old hotel in Portland
Rain hitting street lamps
The buzzer

A panacea for the fear.
My palpitating heart rate levels.
My hands don't sweat, my voice doesn't tremble.
My body and being fragments out there; at home, I reassemble.

I'm not under surveillance here,
Free from piercing beams of sight.
Isolation is in my right;
And amid...Read More

Don't wear your heart
Outside your vest,
Said the ragman.
It is inevitable that surveillance
Will capture you 
In your least expected moment,
When you cannot hold near
That which lives outside the cage.

Don't wear your heart
Like a token
Or like an icon.
Hearts are not meant 
To...Read More

Chess, friend imitates life
and every movement has its time
and to everything the soul gives lair
and all body incorporates ...

Always unusual,

immense pride.

A soul's lamment
Quiet speaks much,
Till my heart says no quit;
Conscience or guilt,
One is stronger, and I won’t know which,
Cause’ I don’t know how you keep them both,

It happened after choice,

In lifting up a voice, that’s 6,
