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!

A poem from “Dreams & Dew”
Turn over a new leaf,
do it because
you know you need to.
Turn over a new page,
because this story
has to be told by you.
Fill it with writings
straight from your heart.
Detailed, important parts
hitting like darts,
to all its readers
embossing your lifelong art!
Looking on that lonely path
Shrouded darkness leading to an unaltered mark
Is this what’s left?
The deadly bitterness of sweet aftermath!
Distant footsteps, nearing each heart beat
Growing louder, this fleeting echo
Nothingness accompanying these feet
Stopped static right in front of me!
Feeling sight, glaring bright
Yet, darkness surrounding free
Instilling a cold shiver
Beginning an uneven still fright!
Bring out those unsolicited claims
Witness in your heart pretentious gains
Blowing worthiness of splendour and gold
Tell me this isn’t true or revoltingly untold!
Say ye, thee wise men
Born into the stressful messy den
Unfold thy lids, covered with years of dust
Belong to this song, make no precipitating fuss!
Rush thee now, whistle on fours
Turn that wind dial, hush then some more
Terror draw you out of your circle
Enter my square, begin now that ultimate quarrel!
The search has just begun
The find of an intelligent being
To interact with and be part of the scene!
Wishing on a rare kind of star
To humour and bring out the hidden dark!
Waiting for the magnanimous universe
To select, delete, investigate and uncurse!
A graze of good fortune, in much abundance
Droplets of good luck on this prance
Filled with stupendous hope and lit up darts
Giving a firm but gentle nuance!
Worries aside, fear and expectations by the side
Extremely good thoughts and focus in mind
The skies are looking positively clear
Brimming full of my endless cheer!
The complicities of love
Laid bare emotions
Fulfilment of devotion
Enriching dormant dead imagination!
Intricately binding at every pore
Feelings of astonishing galore
Ring in the new, lovely dew
Enlisting joy as one of the many few!
Picture perfect at a glance
Try it then, take a seldom chance
Feel not barred nor battered nor inflicted
Ending may vary, worth it even if restricted!
Promises and vows
Rich in binding thy very now
Open to the merge, souls conflicted
Bear this in mind for when indicted!
