I've placed your love
delicately,
on a head crown
where it's been warily pieced
with such a fine, military precision
of your veins
I've traced
before the sandman totes you away
do you reckon that
though the moon is actually a dry place
how unbelievably
is it now that even the storms
can't wave off the little beads
on my skull

-a.

consider me a phantasy
when you were caught
in a reverie
once upon a moon
while our hearts slowly flutter away
to war songs in synchrony
I appreciate your eyes
and I know, eventually
I'll never get to meet them again
nevertheless,
as I learn to look away,
I hope this scent that follows
won't make me stuck and running
from cupid's sign
since I always end up wanting
to feel
a couple of things twice
after you

-a.

you are my biggest delight
I freeze thinking of you
slipping deeper into this emotion
this sensation that ensnares all that I am

my soul burns with fire
this passion, this rawness, this earth like heartbeat
it’s a drum beating beneath my chest
as oceans roar within my veins

how can i forget you?
you were my biggest delight

     ____

you are my biggest regret
I freeze thinking of you
slipping deeper into this emotion
this sensation that ensnares all that I am

my soul burns with fire
this passion, this rawness, this earth like heartbeat
it’s a drum beating beneath my chest
as oceans roar within my veins

how can i forget you?
you were my biggest regret

There is no vacancy inside of me;
That’s the space where my words are born.

"Sometimes walking on a wrong path
takes you to the right place
where you have been wanting
something from life.
( may be an instinct or a hint)
Wrong way has a trance to take you
back to your own path,
which you miss once in between the
journey to destiny where Failure is
that wrong way which
rights you later in life.

I thought this would be a kind of cool idea. So I posted my most-used words!
Afiqah 1d

they never once spared
a little of what it's like to be
in a shell
of their own beast-like
contumacy self
instead
they kept us in wards and
clipped our wrists
forsaking us
to take on their nasty egoism
where all the other assassins
burst their lungs away
with the last wine that holds
little drops of the
fiery Tunguska comets

-a.

an angel-like hellion
came by
past two in the morning
right when
I clumsily stirred myself into
fitfulls of ireful, meteoric turmoil

he said,
"be still, my love,
hush those little storms away
and come fall out with me for a bit
we'll swoon over
the majestic-looking stars,
crash into Jupiter's clouds
then tomorrow,
you'll learn to see how to pick
your battles a little more wisely  
leave the shutters yawning,
you'll thank me later"


-a.

They say
I'm so passionate
with my words,
truth is
poetry is just something
that keeps me
alive.

Lilly 1d

My words drip colors:

They do not breathe
Through consonants and vowels;

They do not seethe
With passion or sorrow;

They do not aim like arrows;
They do not trip on talons.

My words make chaos:

They overfill
My bones and marrow;

They slip and spill
Through cracks so narrow;

The raising of an eyebrow;
The mumble through a mouthful.

My words come back to me:

They find release in hands and fists,
(that hit and hit and hit)

They seek reprieve in tears and drinks,
(that drip and drip and drip)

They bloom like flowers
(not on my lips as I speak -
but upon elbows and knees)

My words drip colors, and so color me.
