The Tale…

pressed between the thin pages of  Memoirs
hidden inside a shell protected by a thick wall of lies
describing each story and molded with flowing deception
where truth is invaded with graphic inaccuracies
that chapters become a losing book of a decaying tale…

Poetry Challenge 2017 #6 – Ninefold style : Home

cool tears have flowed from her chinky eyes
passing every second was piercing
firmly grasping the sarcophagus

my thoughts knocked and sympathy walked in
the reason behind the ill-timed grief
my own tears dropped and flowed down my cheek

her sadness i felt, my heart in pain
illness got her mother so early
her soul depart to heaven, her home


In Your Arms


if i turn my back from you
and set my sight away
displeasure as the field of view
take the mood of a bitter day

if i go there on the hill
and alienate myself
is it against your will
if i say goodbye, farewell

but as i touch the local color
of breaking off the knot
it’s you  i see in every corner
i wont let the feelings to rot

i have to be in touch again
with you, my love i still remain
‘though i’ve sang  my  farewell song
in your arms i’m back where i belong


Guns and Roses


if these roses can whisper

to people of different ears

if seeds can listen awhile

this could carry tears and cheers


thorns could prick their skin

protruding from the stalks

but roses are all akin

various flags along the garden walks


beautiful buds now abloom

speaking softly to the stars

thoughts were read by the restless moon

concerned about the ongoing  wars


if all the guns will turn to lovely flowers

no bubble of hatred will burst as it poses

no braves and cowards would ever cower

when bombs and arrows  become  bouquet of roses…

At A Distance…


image obscure and cryptic

corrupted copy of impression

cloudy light  casting back

 dim under the shadow


fixing thoughts of spent scenes

reminiscing hates and loves

tears sink in river beds

slowly float with the flow


never a perfect copy

reflection digging the past

when i stare outside the window

 at a distance myself recast
