An Echo of Remembrance

Discordant orchestra
a distant roar of applause
My life's accompanying credits
I'm outside
within a circle of my own
memories
rippling through mists
of recollection

Picking shards of broken
glasses, by the pathway
bleeding hands
yet hope in the heart abounds
for betterment
food on plates
tummy warmly filled

Pride swallowed deep
Wishes chanted
mantra
repeated incessantly
a better life
warmer home
to be held and loved
Instead, they brought in the clown

Life became a long drawn joke
no one laughed
until the comedy of errors
ended.

behind a mask

 


her eyes
always smile,
offering a sweet
walking down
the aisle.

twenty sixth.


So it's been a year
since I yeeted the teets,
I wanted to write
something on the 26th
of November

but I had to let things
simmer down within myself
because it's such a life
changing process

I guess
when you're immersed in it
you don't realise how much
you've really gone through
until the air settles.

I'm not going to write
some inspirational bull
because i've been
nothing but real,

is it wonderful?
of course it is,
am I happy
about it?
yes I am

however,

if somebody
turned around
& asked me

"do you feel it's completely over?"

I would turn
around and say
I don't believe
there's a day

you can
truly say
it's over,

everybody
evolves everyday
let alone going through
a medical intervention
to become the best
version of yourself

I guess
it's allowing yourself
the space to let it happen
if you really want it.


If somebody
turned around and told me
"it's never over' during
my transition

I would
have probably
turned around
& said

"get stuffed
that's not going
to happen"

but here I am

saying
i've also chosen
this route for myself
which is something
I believe would
never happen,

something
I never thought of
while going through
this journey
i'm on.

I've always
been a person
who advocates
for change

for standing out
from the rest
because it's
better than
blending in,

I guess
you reach a peak
where you're alright
with whatever
comes your way
next

maybe
i'm just seasoned,
maybe i'm exhausted
of words branding
the flesh of other
human beings.

If there's one thing
I can say to anybody
walking on the same
journey i've walked on

i'd say
let yourself be,
take up the space
that belongs
only to you

and fuck
everything else
because

spoiler alert

that's not
included,


just
live.

Eastward, Behind the sun

was it a drop of water
that rippled the calm pond
or the scream of a woman
in throes of anger

was it dissatisfaction
that shattered the looking glass
streaked with fine powder
sneezed and expelled

was it the fire of regret
that burnt slowly consuming
the golden circle
eating away the entwined hearts

questions unanswered
thoughts unspoken
indifference
silence....

looking blankly around
not knowing what to think
alone again
always alone.

there'll always be

creatures
critters and
critics

some art
by nature
is beyond some

the simple reality-
to each their own
too
is beyond many
as well

live and let live
is for humans
not trolls
so easy to forget that.

sometimes
the louder the critic's rant
the more profound the confirmation
the art
is simply beyond
their sad ability

not everyone is
gifted
naturally.

There is a double ache in my heart
two precious poets I can read no more
they made signing on joyous
I am somber thinking about that closed door

EngV or Vic was a man of great intellect
a man of science but also a deep heart
I smile when I read his words to his love
yes he truly made a poem brilliant art

Gabriel and I messaged about everything
our perspectives always gelled
okay me maybe a tad bit more positive
with politics, he suggesting a system failed

They even vibed with each other making  
me laugh being the less skilled on guitar
waxing about a trio of poets playing
in some quaint lounge in a bar

Saddened the most that I knew not
of their passings until many months later
so focused on education in this Covid Era
to that one thing that makes me a hater

Parents, aunts, and uncles that lost
battles with cancer, toughest of fights
I take comfort in knowing that via poetry
and those who loved not gone is the light

And since they lifted me up
during times when I was down
I hope to do the same for another
in that way their memories never will drown

I am in Love with You

a star's twinkle above the clouds
glitters of silver lights winks
misty drizzles on twilight nights
makes me think of you
 
looking for a four leaf clover
among weeds on fields of flowers
sitting under trees with dappled shadows
from high up the cheery skies
 
loving your love thousands kisses deep
wondering if it will go on a little more
than a heartbeat in forever
go beyond the sun, behind the moon
 
portals in the mirrors
shades of blue diamond in your eyes
crystal heart can shatter in your hands
yet I am so in love with you
 
I am still dancing on my own.

pearl thoughts

 
 

my hands
hold no jewels
or pocket stones
 
but my boots  
grind against  
the pavement
 
under clouds
hanging on  
a string of  
hope,
 
reminds me
of that day  
innocence  
was lost
 
to hands
claiming a
grey pearl,
 
it doesn't
always happen
in a deep abyss
 
grey skies  
can scream  
murder in
silence
too.
