Depression Exposed

I cry, I feel, I hurt, I heal.
I still bleed when I’m cut.
Then why am I like a puppet,
strings cut, crumpled
on the pavement where
people pass me by as if I’m  
trash to be picked up.

Unearth

   
 
   
under    
the moon's umbra
shrouded
I stand    
my weary and wicked heart    
barely beats,    
still so painfully buried    
in your hands;  
sinful pride in tatters,   
a confetti of sorrow    
s c a t t e r s    
riding upon winds    
of yesterday's promise;    
a    
darkened    
bloodied  
   
reminder

Sleep Spells

 
Engulfing black will
drag me into its undertow
regardless of your spell
casting hands.

You promised to ward off
everything,
but I’m not sure your charms
actually work.

So don’t tell me not
to dream

if you plan to leave.

Premonition

 
She said she had a dream -  
She was the queen of the parade  
With a full view of everyone…  
  
Her funeral procession  
Was attended by everyone  

Her final resting place - on top of a hill  
Overlooks the town

Between the Deep and Me

death on the shore
under the full Hunter’s moon,
my fight, a trophy
in your chest pocket  
as you leave me for high tide;
there’s nothing now
between the deep and me,  
save a few stars standing  
in my way

~(y)our ambre love above all & nil..


1.
~the accompanist


your
husky monotones’
 a shadowy dark
semblance, a fallen
 dusk’s uninvited
accompanist...  

-overrides
those blinding synthetic
ultraviolet spectacle
 
-elongates
in a menacing acuity

yet intertwining
with its objective origin’s
free endless hands...  

the extreme
‘8” connectivity

 -our
cyclical looping
       infinity




2.
~liberation



the koel
   no more
sings in its aching
melancholic grace...

..given to arduous
lovelorn rattles

pitch~ black leachates
of its darkening hues…
  corrode inner in a
choking necrosis

famishing eyes
   of one devotion…

in no tears, anymore


a fasting desiccation
