We seldom kept secrets
We seldom had to lie
We seldom felt regrets
We seldom had to try

Look at all the regrets now,
Look- the trigger's pulled
Look, we found the secrets! wow!
Look, how we've been fooled!

Now that we are miles apart
What tethers our two minds?
Estranged by the soul and heart,
Who knows what we will find?
For you they rode a thousand mile
Across the Tigris, and the Nile
They fought till death,
Their horses fled
Under the hooves- the water rile

For you she made the desperate choice
As she ignored her inner voice
One sunny day,
She walked away,
Quite silently- without a noise

For you he counts his passing days
And tries to figure the different ways
How a guilty plea,
Will be his key,
To escape from this obnoxious mess

For you I overlook the spies
Ever-so-carelessly roll the dice
This game ends,
No more pretence,
For you, are none, but promised lies!
say Jan 2
another year gone
only a memory
from now on
a new chapter lies ahead of me

You are my citronella
When my thoughts hover like mosquitoes salivating for a bite
You say, “not today ladies”
You are my natural remedy for a challenging foe...
Keep smelling sweet with a hint of citrus
My mind depends on it

The bell rings and its time for lunch.
As I approach the doors I need opened, my steps are halted by a list.
ATTN: For a seat at the table bring your own plate, utensils, and food.
For how long will I starve before I can sit among those near, those those opinions I hold so dear.
When you call me a peer I see its because you think I'm looking at your plate.. At what you have.
Correction, my envy is of my future self not those who's legs and elbows are easily displaced.
But don't worry, its fine, I will return soon enough.
I'll have my degree in hand ready to wipe the crust of unpolished thoughts from my lips
Food in my bag ****** from a ****.
Plate and fork in the next carved from the bones of the opposition.
Don't worry, I will be ready!
Raise your standards and I will meet them.
this is the last time I will be denied access because nothing you do will take away what I've earned.
Stop letting people confine you and be the best you in every way possible.

Here I am
am I here

Short poem! ^-^
I'm so psyched to see Winter's Queen trending, thank you so much!
I'll be back later with another free-verse!
Much love,

of better things
of lovely things
of saddening things

of Him who I wondered
ever really loved me
or did it mean no more

of the life that was not mine
the life I left behind
the life I could not find

of something I do not deserve
yet yearn for
with no reserve

of things so harsh and deep
the ocean swallows me whole
and into quicksand I seep

of the life I thought I desired
of the life I was inspired
but never became reality

of better things
that became worser things
That became dangerous things

Of things I don't understand
Yet yearn for
What nonsense, I am.

Just like
Is self sustaining
Remember that
Just saying...
