Picasso

She said paint me like one of your girls and he picked his quill and dipped it in ink and upon paper poured detail in verse

In fear I cowered

In fear I cowered from this existence, from all life and all things bright, for the darkness said no words, required no work and gave solace. In fear I cowered from mankind, from friends from family, and all those who I claimed to care about for I could not bear to hurt then with the…

I thought Wrong

I thought I was to be her rock, pillar, the beam that held up, supported and protected her. Alas, I am to be nothing more than a gardener for she is more delicate than the rarest of species growing on the fringe of extinction. A flower whose petals need love, compassion and constant attention to…

Dep’r

Maybe I don't want to go deeper into this session of mind regression where I stand in confusion as I listen to the lies that paint illusions of fake confessions upon my means of identification.  Maybe I want to sink deeper in love with my intuition as I grow through education and I'm not talking…

Ordered chaos.

I thought I could love you according to a specific construct in my mind. Like numbers punched into an equation I thought I knew the explicit directions required to create the proper love cocktail that would fuel or flame. Little did I know I was being a fireman to the flame of our love, crafting…

Healthy addiction?

Her lips held the drug that held me in a state of ecstasy, dopamine concentrated, injected into my bloodstream my brain could only shudder with delight as my worries faded into the distance. Stronger yet I became every time you called my name, bolder I got when we were together for your presence forced me…

Two people… Two worlds.

He said "I love you", she said " I do too". He said, " I wanna hear you say it". She said, " I love you too babe". Little did she know that they meant two different things. Two people, from two different worlds. To him it meant through thick and thin, Whatever you need…

Idol confessions

Her makeup is on fleek, his kicks are dope. Damn boy your whip is sick, I see you flashing your cash it's all good. Exclamations from the other side of the screen. In a world where the term socially acceptable affects the expression of our culture; reveals the horrors of our selfish nature as well…

Dead life

I walked like I was the best, the greatest, a hero beyond compare yet my heart only held fear and to show this I would never dare. The people I called friends never knew the pain and suffering everyday I would go through, for behind my smiles and glares and laughs lay the real me.…

Sign a Treety

I met a tree today He said he was feeling under the weather I asked what was wrong? He said he couldn't tell the seasons anymore I asked how so? He said he usually felt it at the edge of his branches and his trunk could touch the air and just know. I asked, "and…

Spring has sprung

As the rooftop glaciers shrink away into the eaves and the tires grip dry asphalt,  as the hare begins  a new fashion trend with brown coats and the birds return to sing their beauty melodies.  You realize there's something different in the wind. Breathe it in its new life. As the colours of the landscape…

Heart Ramblings

I held you close, and I looked into the house where your soul resided and at the window a fair lady sat smiling.  I sit here lost in time with you by my side, I gaze at you and am lost in awe at such beauty, there is no denying. I can't explain the reason…

Moon kiss water

At the point where the moon kisses the water I feel my love for mother nature ripple outward. My mind stills and slows to the rhythm of the silence and though my worries like stars shine, I care not for them for in this moment they aren't mine. The wind and sweet smell of the…

Untested flame

I look into your eyes and I see an unwritten future, I hold your arm and feel the lick of an untested flame, I hold you close and hear the whole rhythm, a song unbroken by time, coated in innocence and polished with hope. Tuned to match the ears of those who hear it and…
