     When you left,
     It was sudden
     Without so much
     As a good-bye
     Now, I can't
     Shake the feeling
     That somehow
     You didn't even know
     That I loved you
     And it cuts deep
     Like thorns
     Piercing rose petals
     Or walking barefoot
     Through shattered glass.     JD

The silvery moonlight
Calls to the shore
Teasing it to come
And read what it wrote
It writes stories with its glittering ink
That flows with the water below
Stories of lovers
Who loved too much
And promised a lifetime
Only to drift apart
Because time wasn’t on their side
Like the sea drifts away from the shore

Sometimes I feel I come from another time
Because my soul is too old for this new world
I come from a world
Where there are no walls or boundaries
Where colour is a word
Used to describe flowers not skin
Where hearts are full
And thoughts are deep
Where the spirit is free
And flows like poetry  
I come from a world
Where you can feel every feeling
Deep in your bones
Where dreamy romances still exist
And everyone is fluent in chivalry   
Where being kind isn’t a virtue
It is just the way to be
I come from a world
Where intuition speaks loudly
And voices speak softly
Where eyes talk without words  
And silence is a language
Where music can be heard everywhere and in everything
Someti...

No. 522

I am not going to justify myself to a world that only sees me when it decides I`m worthy and no longer invisible.
I don’t need to be ‘seen’, my life so far has been a tremendous achievement, my only regrets are that it took me far too long to realise that museums and galleries aren’t the only places where art lives
– it lives in me too,
I am art.
I know I may not appeal to everyone; however, I have learnt, that the only person I need to please is me.
The world is full of critics and I will always be my worst critic and often judge myself harshly, but I know me best, I know the struggle I’ve been through. What I won’t accept are strangers with opinions based on the cover a...

Like the shades of grim
Overshadowing my joy
The stars in space gleam
Overguarding your boy

I'm quick to dream
but slow to think
I'm speed for your cream
but refuse the stream

You are the epitome of love
And lust beholds
The zeal you gives off
I want you to have and hold

Like the oceans that sing
And scare me away
Your melody kicks in
And drift me away

And the oceans lay
They roar on still
You have me to lay
And blissfully keep me still

Taking time from my
         Self exiled island of guilt
                     To breath some fresh air.

Surreality

                                             I can't stop fantasizing
                                       Addicted to romanticizing
My one preoccupation
Indulging in hallucinations

THE HOSPITAL WARD

Bland and sterile,
geometrics flutter beside an open window,
to the rhythmic sounds of bedside contraptions,
as they wheeze,
and ping,
and beep,
The judder of cups rumbling upon a distant tea trolley,
and pleasing interruption,
mixed with the chesty staccato coughs and moans of the patient in bed eleven.

***********

Ever seen chances slimmer,
Than oxymorons? Than breaths
In the slits of turmoils of death
Than serendipity walking bold
With a thunderous sky
Than the fine line of white
That turns the strongest dark
Into a grey of hope,
There, then, maybe
Lays a soul, praying to fall
With trust, on the wiser side.

                The Weary Feather

  She walks through the deep red door bearing wings of the crow.
  She lifts one delicate finger and points past me.
  I turn in disarray, and faintly hear her sigh followed by a chuckle.
  There is a light so white emanating from behind her, it causes the vessels in my eyes to reveal themselves.
  She gingerly steps forward towards me.
  With every step there is this unfamiliar sense of heat that engulfs me.
  I notice my hands begin to tremble.
She approaches closer and her feathers ruffle.
  Her once confident smirk turns to a stale straight face.
  She is close enough for me to feel her breath as it frolics through my eyelashes.
  I notice bumps raise ...

Alfaazon ke zariye jazbaat bayaan zaroor kiye aapne...

Galti aap ki nahin thi jo unka matlab hum kabhi samajh hi na paaye..

Unn lamhon ko kareeb rakhe rahenge hum umr bhar..

Par hum kabhi na laa payenge wo pyaar ke saaye...

I keep moving
I can't sit still
I get nervous
That I'll feel ill
Emotional
Uncomfortable
Vulnerable
And unstable
A sudden flood
Of energy
Overwhelming
I cannot breathe
Will I survive
This painful loss
She gave me life
I must go on
Did she sit still?
Give into fear?
Why if she had
I wouldn't be
here

INCOMPLETE

Trees without leaves,
Streams without water,
Skies without stars,

Me if I'm not yours.

Emerald

That was the color that glittered
in your reflection
as it danced in the hidden pool
nestled within a shrouded grove
where we used to play as children

Laughter

A sound so joyfully wonderful
hinting at the mirth and merriment
we hoped would carry on
cradling our innocence
like a long forgotten keepsake

Silence

The kind you wish was comfortable
full of questions and riddles
with no sense of comprehension
and leaves nothing for certainty
except a growing sense of loathing
for these unbidden enigmas

You have to fail
You have to speak your truth

Or you wont know who to trust
Whos with you
Whos against you.

Fall. See whos still there
Be sick; who brings flowers?

You have to break up
To see if its true.

See what i am telling you;
Whats real will fight for you
Support you
Care about you

You gotta be at ROCK bottom
To know who really got you.
