Perfect

September 12, 2019

You’re a wordless poem I hope to perform Soundless music by a hyperactive orchestra My mind’s obsession painted on a blank canvas with the colors of the rainbow and the sadness of a soul You’re an art form A masterpiece The proof of a creator’s mastery is embodied in the precision of your curves Whole […]

I wish that you could see the secrets behind each text or decipher with your mind’s eye the words buried by backspacing. I love you Hey. You’re all I ever think about How are you My mind is falling apart I’m fine too. Do you ever think of me? How was your night? My nightmares […]

I’ve seen giantsEnd up as dwarfsTaj Mahal blueprintsEnd up as unpublished drafts. I’ve seen CheckmatesEnd up as lossesFor the player, was checkingMates paces to run personal races. Rocks have been reduced to ashesFor they were scared of harsh hissWhat will people say, has left a lot of folksWithout a say in their own lives. If […]

WOLF

August 9, 2019

They say I have no money to buy clothes That is why I creep upon sheep at night To tear off their innocent skin From ears to paws I walk around the streets Like a scholarsheep priding in another’s sweat. Do not ask me if I deserve it, Because it takes outstanding skills To shred […]
