Alcoholic millionaire Another fine seasoned scotch Soon returning home Bowling pins on sidewalk Unknowingly almost struck -- Addicted to scales Fluctuating through the day Sacrificing health Gravity's affirmation Identity's lethal weight -- Ten thousand follows Mindlessly preached mindfulness Business prospers Completely disconnected Grave digger attached to shovel -- Some things money can buy Possessing sugar … Continue reading Metrics

The Phoenix

Chained to the bed  Broken wings,  Blood-stained sheets,  Motionless and tattered  In the darkness  Praying for a piano  Through the roof  --  Ask and you Shall receive--  Under the moon's spotlight Irreplaceable flint  Illuminating lava  in her eyes  Soot filling the room  Spies and demons incinerated  Her quill, like her feathers  Reveries, melting hearts And … Continue reading The Phoenix

Withstanding

Standstill with time  The light splashes  A nearby stream The flaps of birds Passing above  Below rooted  Deep breaths  No agony  Withstanding,  She peacefully endures No memory Lovers chisel their names  Children sack Minas Tirith  Selfishly using her branches  Innocently severing limbs  But roots remain growing  Trance inducing Embers fading  -- She snaps out  Remembering … Continue reading Withstanding

Memory

Nestled in a familiar place In the silence-- stacks Blurry pages straining my eyes Squinting so hard To keep the record skipping Decipherable yet undeciphered  Still, while  New volumes recorded over Lamenting all the memory wasted  As storage is growing full,  But can't just light these files on fire  Even though we went Up in smoke … Continue reading Memory

Speak Parrot

'All you can do is repeat? Come on, we've been echoing our shadows for too long' the jaguar said to the parrot as he leaped from his branch. 'Come on, we've been echoing our shadows for too long', the parrot squawked without moving. 'You didn't learn much did you, you need a foundation before you can lay bricks.' … Continue reading Speak Parrot

Words

Words filter in, they go Others replace them, also fading Eventually They stick After arranging and re-arranging Themselves  Floating, dissipating, re-emerging  Fragmented  Put back together until  They evolve  Into destiny Separate points  Connected without touching  Enveloping unity between  Parallel dreams  Space filled-- creating This poem  Photography by Manjari Sharma

My 26th Birthday Thoughts

Until yesterday, my last post talked about how I now am doing online teaching English with DadaABC and am loving it. You can read about it in detail here. Its the last month of the summer, and there are all sorts of extra hours available before the kids go back to school, so I decided … Continue reading My 26th Birthday Thoughts

La Matadora

I found myself fidgeting I tried to resist What for? Bound so tightly In your lasso Ensnaring eyes Yet willingly I'm yanked along A mellifluous hypnotist One of many enamored cattle  Herded for the slaughter  -- A cowgirl getting what she wants In her lasso Suffocated more and more  A seductive smile Tattooed to all … Continue reading La Matadora
