Been a while since I did a concrete poem.
The formatting should be fine on the computer and tablet, it may look a little weird on the phone. To be honest, I've been feeling more tired and lethargic than ever, but yet the fire burns hot when I think of writing...and how much of a blessing it is to me.
Many times where I feel I should stop, I always end up with a pen back in hand.
Though I feel as if I am not worthy of this gift due to my regrets and poor choices of the past, the voices of the stories still linger in me.
And I despite all my flaws and imperfections, I do wish to bring them to life, as they so rightfully deserve.

I'm still working on extending the Women of Myth list, so it'll be postponed for a little longer but I will be sure to let you all know when it's back. I just have a lot of reading to do, haha.
Be back soon.
Stay safe and well, everyone.
Much love and air hugs,
Lyn ***

Trying to keep numb
By words soft and sweet
Thought I was in control but I'm not
I'm swept off my feet

I feel temptation creeping
I don't know how to make it stop
This is what I deserve
Heart spinning like a top

I am tired of fighting the feelings
The truth in my gut
Face not the easiest to read
My written words betray what's shut

Eating my cold composure
Barriers in my mind
Any second will be consumed
Too much love declined

My confused body might collapse and cave
Toxic with desire
Skies blue through foolish eyes
Underneath lay brimstone and fire

Our souls made to come together
Rip apart as we tragically fall
Loving is beautiful but I'd rather
Escape pain and feel nothing at all
I thought I was healing but I just stopped feeling

I love you and the bag you drag
You pull it with such strength
But it exhausts you
I watch in awe but I see Your eyes
they have a hint of shame
Like we all do
I’ll open your bag but you’ll stop me
I’ll smile
And I’ll tell you with reassurance
I want to see what shaped the Woman I Love today.
Redolent flowers

Millions of butterflies hung

Golden yellow blooms
Amaltas (Hindi) - *******/ Indian laburnum/ Cassia Fistula tree

These flowers( *******) are in full bloom in the month of May. The blooms, mildly fragrant, droop down and to me they look like yellow butterflies.

A grand musical is underway!
Actors and actresses scurrying about
Memorizing their lines written by poets
Weaving sweet phrases
Conveying positivity
Artists shaping the smile
The relaxed pose
Arms open and inviting
Ready for instant hugs
A harpist for the mouth
All this is at play
So, how is it possible
For one
To look deeper
And see what’s really behind the smile?

Thinking about a past lover
isn’t exactly the healthiest outlet
But it makes getting over you
a lot easier, I’ve got to admit.
I saw myself in you
I guess we’re more alike
than I ever knew.
World class pieces of ****,
Who don’t know when to shut the
**** up or quit.
I’m done recycling my hate.
I’m done with my Freudian fate.
I need to rise from these ashes.
Can’t set myself up for any back lashes.
I’ve never felt more self aware,
now all I gotta do is get up and out of here.
I think I’ve discovered my worse fears.
Mamas boys, becoming my mother.
No longer scared of getting beat on by my brothers.
All I gotta do know is stop thinking about my past lover.
Mind my business
Maybe go for a ride on my flying nimbus
I’d bring you along but your heart isn’t pure
Don’t come running back to me like I’m the cure
I’m sorry but your going to have to work it out on your own..
I’ve got my own demons to silence in this egg shaped dome.
We tried to date a very long time ago.. it lasted 2 months.. lol

Words can be...

      Words can be all of these things and more, much more @       @
        They should never be underestimated, for they have so           @
         much power, to heal and hurt, to lose and gain, so use            @
           them   wisely.   There are so many poems I have read            @
            that have influenced me for the better.    I remember          @
             all  that I wrote - depressive pieces of work,     but         @
             man,    I can honestly admit that I have grown. I      @
                 do have a little girl's heart but I am a Queen.  I    @      
                       will help polish the crowns of everyone I     @        @
                          meet. Our kingdom's will thrive.                @

Our passions won't die.            We will use our quills to
connect to one another.     We will use the stones of our
enemies to them strengthen or walls.    Just know that
true Kings and Queens   will keep sipping
on our sweet  poetea.
Inspired by fellow HP Queen Jugnu 'The Firefly's' A Tea of Poetry poem.
It was rather challenging to do, but I made it work at least! ^-^
Thank you Queen Jugnu for the cup of Oolong tea!
Here's some Poetea ;)

Be back soon!
