I am the wind





sometimes I sleep with my clothes on
a remnant from when you'd never know
what was going to come through the door

I could love you madly, crush your heart
with silence, watch as it dies a death, let it gasp for breath, bleed out, not shout "dont go!  

I am stone cold. stone fucking cold
I'm the wind, I blow in, then blow away

sometimes I sleep with my clothes on
a remnant from when you'd never know
what was going to come through the door

The self mirror

Deceptions of self royalty, and see what others see
under calm exterior, perceptions inconsistent majesty
 
Factions vie and accept lifes loneliness  
the awkward a square peg, so blessed !
 
Try your best and know you fail
the clouded eye for small detail
 
Contentment rare as false hens teeth
the shifting grounds of self belief
 
Feet of clay that never were quite formed
never to find love again and be reborn
 
 Commitment fit like a new bought vest
fools gold, was all I ever did posses

I Am Her

On most days she is fire and rain.
Some days she is crazy or insane,

But every day she is kind and
She is giving out a helping hand

To those who need it the most.
She has California and west coast

Blood running through her system,
Never letting any big or small stem

Cuts ruin her chances of living her
Happy and fulfilling life. Tears blur

Their vision, but hers is crystal clear
And bright. She and I have no fear.

சுயம்பு~ 🔥svayam-bhū,  THE 'BE UNCREATED'

 
 
 
 
 
underlying sinewless boney dea(r)ths in a longly paining dullness  
& the desiccating vapid musculars of a hung detachment- a torn  
faded kite on a dying woody vascular's brittle branch in lastly sway  
 
stays here as a fatal st(r)uck forevermore in syncing solitudinal  
stictions, wraps in a smouldering magmatic silence in its subtle  
meditating dormancies....
of a twilightic mesmerize- a love~ laden  
drowsiness- ropes in woven hearty pulleys of hope..  wheeling in  
 
dreaminess carts of time, fetches frothy~ fresh lukewarm springs  
of an envisaging Eternity Love, in a babbly gush of pure bloodstreams  
-maps through the sleepy tender leafy eyelids in a red fluoresce tracing  
lucid pathways, violent eardrums mute themselves in sudden~ smooth  
 
fallen trances, wakes~ verses up (to) conflating sound, each now

I AM Unexpected

From between the cracks where I slipped
comes a small clear voice below a whisper  
When no one will see you and know how to    
recognize what you are and need  
   
I will be with you in your obscurity    
I will rise above you and will be your cloak  
I will overshadow you with unexpectedness    
You will be the dark horse no one expects  
   
In birth, in school, in prayer, in work, in politics    
at home, abroad, online, in heart, in mind, on the grind  
you will be forgotten, mocked, bullied, threatened    
But your hope will be a Phoenix eternal

I AM They that Pluck Yew - Saying Pluck off - with ALL ten Fingers!

First things first
a muzzle won’t do
I have a hijab for yew

It doesn’t make sense
to deface the image
of God in us

Pointless threats
and attacks
my impetus

to shout down
megaphones
of self-destruct

Stick to doing
righteous things
standing tall

Reflection

You are always there staring back at me with eyes of regret.

But, who are you? I ask.

But, no response is all I  get. Only a worn down expression across your face.

But,who are you?

With eyes glazed over from tears that run ramped. A mind who’s choice is, but to be confined to a safe place inside your head.

Who are you? I ask.

You are there every morning when I awake and every night before my head hits the bed.
But, I don’t recognize you.

So I ask again. Who are you?

Because you are not the me, I choose to see in my reflection.
