Moss

Apologies I offer thee in advance
Shedding any hindrance, maintaining my superfluous balance!


For now I shall commence my irrevocable dance
Cursed being, you lost your golden chance!


Shame not in sight, this is my win
Dirt is meant for you, a horrible cringe!


Sorrowful and doomed your existence
No more need for even a simple sentence!


Go about your way, our paths never again to cross
The ultimate fulfilment is to leave behind you, an undeserving rotting moss!

Stroke…

Dreaming silently, watching aimlessly
Trying to figure you out
Feeling your thoughts work away
Splashes of paint all over you
See it now, that visionary pout!


Move on with your precise strokes
Building momentum with each strike
Vibrating colours on different textures
Fingers mixing in that light!


Can this be my unfaithful hoax?
Healing it is just to watch
You be my one and only match!

The Suffragettes….(Happy Mother’s Day)

She cried out of her senses

Sheer despair, beaming at its hinges


Shedding her thoughts and beliefs


Resting in her mind’s deepest crevices!


With every drop, inching out attached negativity


Spreading thin, creeping riddled sensitivities


Cleansing out the coloured palettes


Years of depressed feministic rights and fates


Blooming on with the beautiful suffragettes!

Mistral Winds

Shelter I seek
from these mistral winds
touching my skin
as ice on fire
melting innately all my ire!

Opening my pores
as the petals of a rose
blooming in abundance
under these rays
of the morning sun affray!

Carry me with you
onto the sea
glistening shades
of the truest blue.

Birds flying high
their spirits roaming
gravity free
making me feel full
of happiness & glee!

Heart Shaped

This one is for you
You will recognise it
If you are the true, my baby boo!


Your eyes like deep pits
Enriched with years of grandiose soul
Your skin more glowing
Rife with melted chocolate and honey
All of it encouraging me so much more!


Your hands so divine
A pleasure for us, all mankind
But mostly its your heart
Hidden in depth, but shouting out
Cream-filled, pure, delicate and refined
Honestly spread even, a fine gold-mine
Waiting and ready for me to entwine!

Marking this day! ❤️

02 January 2019

I was born today
Many years ago, they say!


Repeated year after year
Changes, bright and clear!


Onwards, without any fear
Some normal, others extraordinary
2018 was my sanctuary!


I grew, I understood,
Realising many of life’s lessons
A culmination of past errors and misfortune
Rounded now my itinerary!


But even better still, it is today
2019, will be my year of breakthrough
Fearlessly leading, guiding, ready to adapt, stay and sway!


Free of the shackles placed on me, now in the past
Free at last, watch me fly, into this world so beautifully vast!


Gratitude to my friends, even my foes
For you have always kept me on my toes!
