She was much like
Sweet from the
But prickly and
Rough from the
Each time you cry
Like sapphire seas,
Break my heart
Just a little bit more.

Be Straight With Me
I can handle the truth if you give me a chance
Your trying to control the situation in advance
You're telling me everything but what I want to hear
Being honest is the way you show you're sincere
Don't beat around the bush and be straight forward
I know seeing my reaction can be quite awkward
Knowing how you really feel can give me that release
Just communicate with me and give me my peace
They say the truth hurts but it also heals the pain
Telling multiple lies to ease a situation is insane
You can't control the way I deal with your news
To play mental games with me is one way to lose
Keeping it real with a person is the way I know to be
Spare me the deceit and just be ...
Give my mind a rest.
Allow me to think and build our nest.
I know i'm no better than anyone else,
though I have to try,
try to better myself.
I refuse to watch the world pass by,
without taking every opportunity that comes my way.
Learning where ever I can,
even without your supportive hand.
Posh Princess you once called me,
for choosing to better myself and study.
But can you blame me?
I just want the best for our kids.
For once I am doing something,
that makes me feel like i exist.
You continue pushing, as if i'll stay by default.
The world does not work like that,
if I must, I will walk out!
You take me for granted.
Lacking great fear.
As one day yo...
On the hillside, the sun soars a high, leaving me behind.
The trees whisper into the breeze, casting their unheard voices into the skies.
Bound to this grave, I'm no longer a place in mind.
The clouds came to pass my gaze, not giving sight to my pondering haze.
leaves float adrift, will the skies give a rise to my fallen mind?
Many seasons had changed, but here I remain still deepened.
The sun overhead, envelopes a glimmer of red.
With it's shining might, it turns away.
It leaves without a goodbye, as a dimming light.
The land deepens it's misshapen blues.
I speak of red, it's all that is left, as the last to be said.
The skies now not so bright, have always had this darkened shape upon my ...
When dark clouds of pain looms,
When heart shudders like thunder,
When ego casts its shadow in lightning,
Tears veil up as rain,
And drops fall down as we cry.
In profound moments of deep silence,
That rain offers to everyone,
A little sadness comes alongside.
As the falling pearls hit the earth,
A lovely fragrance fills us,
Enveloping us in a serene mood
And a little sunshine follows through.
Every moment is an experience
It is the nature.
My heart, Why do you shy away from this?
Savor it and see the sunshine !
If our thoughts we did trace,
Many of would actually see-
We hope to create a better place
Where all creatures can be free!
when you keep getting annoyed
look for me
even on days filled with sorrow ,anxiety
come to me
all the things that bother you
hurt you and make you cry and suffer
share with me
there is no use on crying ,getting angry
when things don't go as planned
take a deep breathe
and remember all the sweet memories we share and the bond we have
just like a lock and key
I barely opened one eye and hoped the view wouldn’t be the nightmare I’d become too used to seeing. but there it was, the darkness called Life was still very much there and another dawn reminded me that no sleep would let me escape it—even, I, Death herself, am too afraid to wake it.

Let's make those bodacious,
They crave for the ones who are gracious.
So leave aside your tenses,
Live what you can feel in your senses.
Those fifteen minutes of Fame,
Make them your flame,
For your survival ,
You need to build your own rival.
Trace it for your sake,
Because sweetheart that is your very own lake.
Swim deeper to cherish your desires,
Meet those demons who set you on fire.
Lash your sorrows,
Woo them to fall out of your tomorrows.
And create those enduring fifteen minutes of Fame.
Because world is your LIMELIGHT.
Writer's Digest Wednesday Poetry Prompts: 453 – A Dream Poem
It was the kind of dream you don't tell
your significant other about
A little steamy
An R rated romantic comedy starring me
and some guy as the love interest
I leaned into the dream
but my conscious mind knew it was trouble
Still we sped ahead
through picnics and flashes of car rides
brushing by clothes as we shopped
sharing a kiss in an elevator
I was in my real feelings -- charmed and swept away --
while my mind fought to return me to reality
Then it won
The dream ended
I had to figure it out immediately
what was my subconscious saying about my relationship
Who was he?
I began to recall the details
the hands on mine,...
Above all else
Above everyone else...
I want to love me..
And make my life
The inevitable comes,
Crashing into me,
Drowning me deep into
Exhausted and lost.
I don’t know which way
Is up or which way is down.
Can’t find the path,
So I’m right in the same stance.
Oh, this heart of mine.
Fighting with my emotions.
My own heart is playing
games on me...
You came in my life
And planted the seed of love
In the garden of my mind.
And now I am nourishing it with proper care
So that one day it will grow into a huge tree
And I will meet you to propose with the flower
From that tree.
After The Vows
Now that time has past do you feel the same
Or are you arguing and pushing the blame
Are you as attentive as you were when dating
Hopefully your love was sincere and isn't fading
Wasn't it so easy to shout out the words "I Do"
After the vows your partner gets to see the real you
What is it really that holds a marriage together
Being willing to bear bad weather until it gets better
This isn't a class where you sign in and sign out
It's learning what "better or for worse" is really about
It's after the vows that your work really starts
It's practicing forgiveness from each others hearts
When you were dating everything was allowed
Everything always seem to change after the vo...
Childhood Affects Adulthood
Parents mold their children just like a pan to a cake
How ever you're instructed gives your life it's shape
What you're taught as a child you will never forget
Morals and principles that others show you never fit
From your failures to your major accomplishments
Learning responsibility on a job to paying your rent
Clueless that your parents were preparing you for life
Now you thank them for teaching you what is right
Times that you felt that they were being hard on you
They we're preparing you to always know what to do
Good thing as parents they didn't slack on the job
Raising you to turn into the most laziest slob
The decisions you make reflects off your childhood...
She was fine being coal
Or a Caterpillar
People use diamonds
And tear butterfly wings
Oh, the things
All the stars in the
night sky and I was
never so starstruck
by the ones in your
Not necessarily it's gonna taken from you..
It can be an incoming wave...
The dangling earth can raise suspicion..
But it won't be staying the same forever anyway..
Demystifying the thoughts can be the only guiding Ray..
But yes dwelling only on thoughts can be a risky play..
