Bitter aftertaste

Shimmering drops still  Clinging, dripping down  the window still  After the rain has ceased.  . Several streaks still lined  On skin from striken eyes traced down, after  the heart has cried it's last.  . Solitary, swivelling leaf Fluttering through the silence,  Grit hung in the wind, When a storm has come to calm.  . Sharp…

Rain and wind 

​And now while the wind blows the last specks of a rainshower,  My face freckled in bliss and distracted reality,  I know I have a mind to carry and a heart too heavy,  But it's the soul that speaks and needs me to stay another second before I go A second for a single thought…

Unaltered words

​Eyes look like Vacant emotion Of dry tears  The plea to cry lidded Beneath thick walls of kohl Utterances, answers- reduced To orphan talk in phoney voice  Unclaimed belief frets loosely  Within the hold of hypocritic truth  Movements, motion- maimed  To mere mechanic ticking of time  Forced routine and dreary steps  Fall back into cycles…

A midnight musing

I don't have any particular epiphany today. And I'm rather slow with thoughts...but that's alright. Maybe sometimes, life takes time to respond however frantic your breathing might be. ....... Maybe, just maybe, it tries to sleep awake sometimes tries to dream with the eyes wide open tries to reason wild thoughts and tamed emotions with…

Conceited Existence

On shingle of sadness, over stones thrown in idle thought, cascading, rippling over a seaful of memories...   Over surfeited surfaces, smoothed of flaws, soothed from flaws...   I searched...   I searched for grafts fashioned from wordy pretense, for reasons to device new reasons for sinful conceited existence.   And wondered, are there any?

Down the stepwell of questions

So, today was pretty much insignificant. Insignificant, i.e.- something that doesn't hold importance. Right? But what's important and what's not? That is the question.    Shakespeare makes an appearance in my head, and says: "Human emotions and beauty is... " Hawking says: "God plays dice, whatever is important, isn't here, isn't this!" Rowling came, and…
