Sometimes less is more,
When more threatens
To become too much.

Slip me in an envelope
seal me in safety
put a stamp on and,
address to anywhere
I don't want to know
And really do not care
as long as no one
Can see the inverted me.

This isn't a Hikku but each line either has 5 or 7 syllables.

kiss me harder
and we'll go down together
I swear I'm not going
anywhere
because you're exactly what I needed
and you showed up the
moment
I
looked away
I'm holding my breaths in
and imagining yours
your mouth
and everything I learn about you is a new
star
and you form constellations with ease
while I'm stuck stargazing
overwhelmed
you are composed
and I am erratic
you don't see a difference
(I wish my words were as beautiful as you)

I'm overwhelmed,

I just want to let loose.

I want to scream until there's nothing left,
paint my problems on a wall,
write the words written on my heart.

I'm crying out, ready to be heard,
my mouth is moving, but I have no words.

I'm overwhelmed,
overwhelmed.

life is bursting
with fullness

fear of failure
strangles me

#fear   #life   #failure   #bursting   #strangles  

Rainfall
Heavy showers
Clouds burst pouring darkness
Barren devoid desert sodden
Monsoon
Flooded rivers overflow blood
Tides roar atop drenched screams
Torrential rains
Deluge

As I open the door

The cold engulfs me first
raising hairs on my neck, shivers down my spine, prickles on my scalp

Next the smell
so mild, pleasant, crisp. similar to rain or dew
my lungs take in this air for the first time

The light begins to peek over the mountains
clearing the fog, cutting away the dark

The quiet is both a comfort and an uneasiness
Only the earth under my feet whispers as I walk the dirt path

The lake unblemished, like a mirror for the sky to look upon
no wind, no waves, no life

standing there, absorbing the surroundings
I am the one to break the silence, to shatter the utopia
as I drop the pebble in the waters…

these ripples go on                                                              ­Forever

tilt my head back
inhale deep
I look up
at the stars
its humbling really,
just how insignificant
all our petty problems truly are
in this vast universe
exhale
