I heard viberation out of the blue
just two minutes talk really like
"game over"
on screen in amusement park fool
a bit more than a missed
call stranger

Have to swim cross night
long and lonely
no energy to sleep back tight, in this
coldest night
literally surviving one and the only!
listening "Learn to be lonely" till
morning light

Wishing not to trigger another
stretched night
hoping for a good paper of
fortune cookie
anyway, a heart full of
thoughtful delight
You're always over my head like a
warm hooie
Based on true story

Cigarette burnt skin
Rise from within
Marks of the mind
Memories unfold
Unraveled and intertwined
The moments were left short
Though all traces last
Falling to the sky
Racing lungs bite
Pinching and clutching breath
What is the punishment of ****?
Could their loves be condemned?

A Fortune Cookie
If it could talk would whisper
read so truth be-known

A fortune cookie
gave numbers for lottery
I haven’t won yet

“Look into the ball and see your fortune come true”,
said the lady with eyes of emerald blue.
“Be wary of those who aim to maim”,
our fair maiden then exclaimed.
“Be careful of life, it wants you dead”,
our lady with flowing black hair then said.
“Survive the curse of life or you shall receive no reward”,
our lady with the twisted, red lips then warned.
“I have seen men on this path falter and die”,
our lady with cheeks of gold said with a sigh.
“Live your life with no doubt”,
our lady with a jaw of steel then cried out.
“Use your love as light in the dark”,
our lady with wrinkled, brown skin then barked.
“Live your life this way or you shan’t succeed”,
our lady with the forked tongue began to plead.
“I have told you all and now you must pray”,
our lady with hunched shoulders began to say,
“You have drawn life out and it wants to play,
The demons of life are here - keep them at bay”
The story of a woman who told of bad fortunes
i love the way your mouth moves
for the letter m
i love your watery eyes
for the high notes
and i love the way you smile
when you see the crowd
reflect in stripes
on my cheek

No need to retreat from smiling faces,
Or to find refuge from warmth of the sun.
The world comes replete with peaceful places,
Your only job is to discover one.

No need to deny moments of laughter,
Or rely on sadness to make you feel.
The world holds all the promise you’re after,
Your only job is to see that it’s real.

No need for shame when you feel elation,
Or feeling that fortune is undeserved.
The world has goodness as its foundation,
Your only job is to find yours reserved.

Happiness screams for you to come get it,
The world gives it to you if you let it.

(And I've been picking dandelions)

The rush of wind chases a wayward cloud
Over the foliage's luscious green mounds
It billows on its good fortune allowed
Feeding flowers leave stock's
roots underground

Petals bloom; centered bud's pollinations
The sun burdens and caresses at once
The bumble lost its edge to pollutants
Overcome in the tepid meadows grace

The seasons start to grow long and narrow
Encompassing the changing of our times
within their altering breadths; to and fro
It's shown upon the rocks face's in tides

She's beauty, ruffling with sents of sweet dew
And in her pluck, spring has become renewed
