Watch these sparks fly
petulant flames pouting
as they wink and strive

Stay alive
just stay alive.

By the night’s errant light
the shadows cast
all’s a gamble
snake eyes in!

Who will win?!
Is it a win?

Streaming forth
beams blast
a darker falling
a trampled sash.

Let’s blow this ash
roll in this ash.

We are mourning
the dawning sun
on this fourth
struck down

dumb.

...
You shaped my world with hands of stone then told me my heart is cold,
you made planets out of me when you only desired space,
my galaxy is without stars now for you took away all my sparks
but then I still shine with beautiful array because I'm the sun and you couldn’t put me out,
Why do you always write about  love she wrote, but it's you I always write about
Days, weeks, months, and years go by.

Here, I remain by your side boldly bearing my heart out to you.  

It bleeds out for you, hopefully reminding you that my love for you runs deep through my veins.

The substance consumes me entirely as it coats every surface inside of me.

Truly, it is an addiction I do not want to lose.



Your small smiles and gestures cause my heart to flutter.

But lately, there seems to be a falter in the rhythm.

The flutters and gallops seem to be less frequent as the infatuation levels emitted from you are dwindling thin.

The puzzling action confuses me and my well working machine.

Leaving me to profess my praises and reminders of how I love you so.



Somehow and someway, my worlds never seem to reach you.

It is as if I am throwing them into the darkness to never be found or heard from again.

But to my dismay, it seems your words are always able to reach me.

They twist and pull at my insides and never hesitate to cut the strings that are contained inside me.



You never seem to realize the grip that you have on my heart.

Your hands tightly squeeze the ***** as they lace their fingers around it.

The sharpness tears the delicate tissue leaving me with shreds.

Holes and mourning tissue are scattered around my once beautiful *****.



I am slowly dying inside, but I hide it well from you and the world that encloses me.

My emotions swirl around their asylum.

They brew forcefully together and threaten to overflow.

Leaving me with the realization that I am not as strong as I think.

But I keep my head held high and I clutch onto my hope that we will go back to what we once were.
Mellow sunrised.
The dew of the afternoon high light.
Paradise sunset.
Tuscany, Marigold, Chartreuse, Caramel.
Amber, Copper, Olive, Saffron.
Honeycomb mystery of rejection... or doubt.
Freedom sparks; feet and hip dilate and constrict; lips close to feel the colors and open again, blinking to suffocate the oasis into the dull reality of smog and soot, of cemetery.
The psychedelic picturesque star stares back, dusk-like fireworks of heaven gained and lost.
One second that sealed his fate.
Death will be hazel eyes.
This is an extra poem I wrote after finishing my anthology, trying to explore a new style of poetry of almost pure imagery and sensory information.

Oh,
my dearest,
Humans ain't even enduring,
then how are we envisioned to
have endless instants.

Moments,
treasure and worship,
such that it prevails eternally,
It's the only way it abides.

isn't it so outlandish to lament on
past moments by neglecting the present?.
Live in the moment,
grasp devotion, yearning, enchantment
and sparks.

only those moments get you
lessons,
not what a triumphant businessman
orates.


We gotta glorify the misery,
idolize the brokenness,
embrace the solitary,
endear the faithless souls,
because all this is what,
take you somewhere in the sky,
to thrive,
to grin,
and to live.
live in the moment

I feel so cold.

We were never "together"
But you led me to believe in "us"
We were never "meant to be"
But I thought we had a "spark"

And then I found out the truth.
yeah.

Why to wait  for that someone when you have already got you?
Why to find happiness else where when it's already inside you?
Why to be in distraught when yu are still breathing?


We humans always miss to find the infinitesimal sparks
That can light up our lives.

Open your eyes through your heart,
And,
Find those sparks.
Find it,my dear.

I thought I was like a bird safely sitting on that wire.
Foolishly thinking I could bypass your electric fire.
But I am no tightrope walker,
    So I slip
         the sparks
               cascading
                       through
                           my grip
                                bathing
                                    me in a
                                         technicolour
                                              waterfall.

Your words float around me,
A charming melody-
They pay homage to my senses,
Wrap me up, and set me free;
But my heart aches of its own accord
It never leaves me be.

It reminds me of the time before,
Time spent in the dark-
But time with you jars my soul;
I've gotten back my spark.

Sparks, electricity
And we light up the city
Dancing along the streets
Passion is a conversation
We continue to have
With coffee afterthoughts
Our words collect like steam
Upon our eyes
And I can’t help myself
From nibbling on your name
