Unquenchable cravings Sustained by records skipped Silhouettes ignored Different variables As I inhale your ashes From those ashes I rise A phoenix reborn Our silhouettes turn into oblivion yearnings As I exhale your memories Soot obstructing space Feeble grasps at restoring Fragments, as I’m dissolved Once again, in solution Of incinerated poetry and Discarded hope … Continue reading Craving



Very excited about my first collaboration!! My haiku is the 2nd 🙂 Also, The Eyes + Words writers community is a wonderful place to network and meet other aspiring writers. I am fairly active on there, and it has been a fun experience so far. Everyone is very supportive, and offers helpful feedback. I hope you will join us if interested!!

Eyes + Words

An Eyes + Words Writers Group Creation

Written byPharaoh Maktuk, Deah Caldwell,
Mil Williams, Andrew James Blair and Santore Imelda

The internal manifestation
Of fear, love, spirit–
Glimpses into future lives

Descend from the clouds
Still here, everywhere
Dreams never ceasing

External – aside
Faithfully saw sadness hang
Free the tree of shame

Outwardly, yet not
A struggle, a strive, to net
Thrive beyond survive

Spun in labyrinth
Straddling hope, persevering
Rain erodes– darkness

How Many More Years

How many more years? An unanswered shriek piercing the most prized armor. A web of convoluted lies silencing all volume. A Later now repeatedly howling a prior. Here, you no longer are replaced by your ghost that remains forgetting all from before. Shackled by time ticking slowly on its finite path with clear blood trickling from your breasts leaving no droplets to trail. … Continue reading How Many More Years


Aimlessly traversing far from home I was told you would leave your door open. Further barricaded in you retreat. I chased you far away to this frozen haven. I see an open door and willingly enter. You were not home, but I happily stayed. The same frozen warmth was here at is was before. Waiting together as the ice thaws … Continue reading Isolation


Silently staring across a meadow tapping the felt. Waiting to see if the story unfolds as expected. A senseless line transparent. Rewinding each road and seeing the subjectivity of his flow. Back broken but tower rising. A masked ninja checks  back planning his next assault. No physical tell can be spotted, but the bubbles are apparent from the steaming … Continue reading Check

Phoneless Pharaohing Part 3– Jason Mraz Concert in Budapest Upon receiving my ticket from the admission counter it said, row 2 seat 1. I immediately became ecstatic at the fact that I would be in the 2nd row for my favorite singer of all time! I sat next to a girl who was studying in Budapest, originally from Turkey. She had also studied … Continue reading Phoneless Pharaohing Part 3– Jason Mraz Concert in Budapest
