She will Rise
The Wonderess May 2020
Rise,
Rise up my Sister
You are a daughter
Of the Sun!
Rise once more,
Like you did before
A new dawn and day
Has come.
My friends are few
And my foes are plenty
I am adored by some
And despised by many

But what does this matter?
Oh, I’ve set my soul free
And I’m at peace when
I can be myself , unapologetically.

Lovely Lone Ranger
The Wonderess May 2020
How wise of you
To go at your
Own pace

To leave their lane
And reject their
Silly race...

-growth is a process

Phases of her Moon

Sister,
You are like
The magnificent
Moon

When you feel
Your power waning
Know it will be restored
To it’s fullness soon...

It comes as a shock
The Wonderess Apr 2020
They say that I’m
Too much to
Handle

Yet they never seem
To handle me with
Care

They say that I’m
Unable to
Trust

Yet they break it the
Moment I’m not
There

They say that I’m
Far too
Insecure

Yet they won’t
Help me
Heal

They say I’m
Cold and
Uncaring

Yet they ignore
What I
Feel

They say that I‘m
unable to
Listen

Yet they are the
Ones who can’t
Hear

They say I’m
Afraid of
Love

Yet there is
so much to
Fear...
Sometimes people make as though we are unable or unwilling to love yet  they and others have treated us in a way that has made us so apprehensive to lend our hearts out. Love is a two way street...

Her Anatomy is Astronomy
The Wonderess Jul 16
Her Anatomy is Astrology

With her starry eyes
She’ll lure you in
Her gaze giving you
A glimpse of
The galaxy within

Her miraculous mind is an
incredible constellation
Glistening with dreams,
Painted with imagination

Her soul shines brighter
Than Luna’s light
She’s as honest as the day
And mysterious as the night…

Alone isn’t Lonely
The Wonderess May 2020
Can’t they all just learn
To leave me alone
Is it so hard to fathom
That I like being on my own?

And no, it’s not lonely
I don’t need you help
I am perfectly capable
Of loving myself...

Don’t let Love go

Hard to Love
The Wonderess May 2020
Her wildness is not
To be tamed
Her beauty is not
To be framed

Her courage is not
To be questioned
Her suffering is not
to be mentioned

Her wisdom is not
To be undermined
Her power is not
To be denied

Her independence is not
to be compromised
Her fervent love is not
To be paralyzed

She is everything and
So much more...
She’s not hard to love
If you know how to adore
The Wonderess Jul 19
When I’m there
You don’t care
But when I’m away
You beg me to stay

I may be known
For my enduring loyalty
But you’ll be left alone
If you don’t value me…
The Wonderess May 2020
I wish someone
Would give me
That Look...

You know the one
Where they read
You, like
You’re their
Favorite book.
This was random, and not at all an indication of my literary competence but I think I’m done showing off my vocabulary for the day. I want my last piece for today to showcase my feelings, to which I hope you all can relate. If I ever meet the love of my life I want him to admire me and be intrigued by my every detail, the way a person is mesmerized by their favorite piece of literature.
The Wonderess Apr 2020
Don’t build me up
To break me down
Don’t make me smile
To make me frown
Don’t me make laugh
To make me cry
Don’t make want to live
To make me want die...

It’s Simple
The Wonderess Jun 2020
She does not need
To be taken care of,
She needs to be
Cared for.

She expects nothing
Less or anything
More.

Tell me, what does she

That you are a

Let go of this guilt
Shake off all of this

My Heart Is My Home
The Wonderess Jul 10
The road back to myself
Was no easy one to walk
I often veered off course
According to their talk

For I was given false directions
By a friend(ly) stranger along the way
Or blindly followed in the darkness
One that I trusted who lead me astray

I stumbled, oh I stumbled hard
But with each significant blow
Something in me awakened,
I was taught a lesson I needed to know

Then came a day when I became
A true traveller: Both bold and wise
I trusted my instincts by
Setting alight their atlas of lies

I followed then a road, determined
By what my soul yearned for
(a kind of love and acceptance)
Not found at another’s door

I came to discover that I needn’t
Cross far lands and sail the seas...
I was far, yet so very close
To the place where I wanted to be

And when I found myself again,
Tears of joy trickled down my face
As I embraced her, I knew their
Was no destination like this place

My past does not define me!
The Wonderess Jul 2020
Like my past I have
Buried her,
She is decomposing
She is Dead,

I will no longer carry
Her corpse with me,
But renew my soul
By moving on ahead!

Revenge Is Not Mine
The Wonderess Jul 2020
I shall no longer be
Diminished and disturbed
For The Devine is not blind,
What’s unsaid is indeed heard.

Perhaps justice will not
Be soon served,
But the day will come
When they get what they
Deserve...

Pleasure and Pain

When you dare
Capture her

She is not yours to possess,
Her passion is not yours
To claim…

The Wordless Writer
The Wonderess May 2020
Crumbling beneath
The boulders,
Of the burdens
On her shoulders

She sits collapsed
On the cold concrete,
Curled up under
A blanket of defeat

Between two kneecaps
clamped head,
Whilst leaning against
The lonesome bed

Tear stains
Mark her face
A painting of
Sheer disgrace

Silent screams
Over her plight
Echo through
The empty night

Knowing that No amount
Of pills and potions
Can cure her of these
Horrid emotions  

She clasps a knife
gasps for breath
Clings onto life
dreams of death

They have sight
But refuse to see
That writing is
Her remedy

Unable to fulfill
Her purpose
She feels utterly
Worthless...
When I am unable to write I feel as though my life has no purpose. Can of my fellow poets relate?

Words are Precious Gems
The Wonderess May 2020
Hush Sister, I know
That you are burning
To erupt...
But trust, that the sheer
Violence of your silence
Is Enough!

Back To Earth
The Wonderess Apr 2020
she paints
with
poetry

molding
her mind
onto paper

creating
worlds with
words

sculpting
alternative
realities

to
lose and find
herself in...

forced to
break her
Avatar-State

abandoning
her sacred
space

she returns
to
Earth
I wrote this poem as an expression of how lost I sometimes feel as a writer in this world. I am in my element when I am producing work and writing poetry, this is how I escape all the problems I am faced with in reality. It is my save haven and through poetry I am able to discover my true self in the alternative reality She creates for me. This is when I am at my most powerful, when I write I become the ‘Avatar’ version of me, can any of you fellow writers relate?

She is Magic
The Wonderess May 2020
I marvel at her magic,
At how she shines like
The Moon

I witness miracles at
Work, when I watch
Her Bloom...
The Wonderess May 2020
i wrote You a story,
with meticulous care
praised your great glory
with  flaws,so blatant, there

i drew You a picture
with such precision
magnified Your stature
according to my vision

You wrote me a story
with malicious intent
what i failed to foresee
i could not prevent

You drew me a picture
dedicated to your desire
i didn’t recognize her
the witch  in Your fire

i told myself our story
The one You wouldn’t hear
what a fantastic fantasy
that seemed so sincere

i admired our picture
the one you wouldn’t see
an angel, called Lucifer
stared back at me


I’m writing myself a story
incase it interests you
a kind of an allegory
to get the message through

I’m drawing myself a picture
in case it crossed your mind
always confusing sin with scripture
I wonder what meaning you’ll find

I’ve written myself a story
and drawn myself a picture
where  I’m freed from your purgatory
and have emerged a victor...
Sometimes people make as though we are unable or unwilling to love yet  they and others have treated us in a way that has made us so apprehensive to lend our hearts out. Love is a two way street...

I wonder who wounded you
The Wonderess Apr 2020
I wonder who wounded you
For you to be this way...
For you to be so callous
And cast love away.

I wonder who wounded you
For you to be this way
I will no longer despise you
But for your healing pray.
Sometimes people hurt us and we regard them as monsters. We harbor hatred and anger for them because of all of the pain they have caused us. Yet something or someone caused them to be this way, so we should pity them instead and pray for their healing.

Don’t let dreams die
The Wonderess Jun 2020
If only you possessed
The power
To see

All that you are and
All that you’ll
Be

Tell me, what is sight
Without the sense of
Perception?

What good is imagination
Without any
Invention?

Thus, hold onto your hopes
For glorious days
Lay ahead

One cannot follow
Dreams that are
Dead

And do not think
Your vast visions
To be foolish

For many wondrous things
Did begin with
A wish...

The Irony of Intimacy
The Wonderess May 2020
Something powerful lingered
Between our interlaced
Fingers

I was ever so softly shocked
When our hands were
Interlocked

Your kiss like a lightening bolt
Struck my heart to a
Halt

I was electrocuted by your eyes
When I at last removed my
Disguise

And finally I resigned to my urge
, to feel this current through me
Surge

Two bodies fused into one...
But the current did not
Come?

And empty was the ecstasy
That belonged only to my
Body

I stared at your blank face
And realized what was
Taking place

You were devoid of feeling,
This had no deeper
Meaning.

You had extinguished our flame
My sacrifice was all in
Vain!

I sought a golden shine
And let you enter my
Soul and shrine

Now I’m left tainted and torn
I wish you’d have me
Warned

That you never intended to ignite
Our love with your false
Light

I was fooled and gave my trust
To a devil derived from
Lust.

Love is indeed blind
Unable to recognize
It’s own kind

*** and intimacy are far apart
You wanted my body
Not my heart.
Sometimes we are mislead by people who pretend to love us in our entirety when indeed all they’re after is our body. In my life I’ve learnt some hard  lessons and one of them was to distinguish between love/intimacy and ***. I was tricked and payed the price, so I thought I’d try and describe this experience to you.

Remember to Forget
The Wonderess Jun 2020
i have come to rely
On my daily
Cigarette

to help me remember
what i wish to
forget

see it’s a bittersweet habit
just like your
Were

i’m better off without it
But that’s not what
i prefer...

i don’t like the smell
or the habit you
see

But it’s the only thing
keeping you close
to me.

Pretentious
The Wonderess Apr 2020
I’d rather you tell me
That you hate me to
My face.

Because I know you
Don’t give a ****
In any case.

So what’s with the chit-chat
And wasting of
Breath

Would you come to my
Funeral, pretend-cry
At my death?

For my best friend
The Wonderess May 2020
Through thick and thin
Loss  and win
We were glued together
As we will be forever

We cured each disaster
With goofing and laughter
Quite the doctors we were
With life’s essential cure

Adopting Peter Pan’s
Most Brilliant Plan
We refused to grow old
to grow bitter and cold

We were so powerful
We were so invincible
Two fragile little girls
Taking on a cruel world

Now we are older
and debatably wiser
Trapped inside adults
despite our revolts

Yet, we bring magic
To a world so tragic
With the ‘faith, trust
And pixie dust ‘

Of our
everlasting friendship...
This poem is dedicated to my best friend and describes how a the sisterly bond that we shared is the kind of magical live that brightens up the world on the most dull of days.

Mighty is She
The Wonderess Jul 10
You have fallen from
A few’s favour
This is not your fall
From grace

When others consider
It a sin, to take up
Your God given
Space

Worship not the words
Of serpent tongues
That spit only
Lies

By bending to their will
you’ll become the
Failure that they
Prophesize

My dear you are of
Of the heavens ,
Created to serve a
Devine Purpose

Never forget, you were
Not born to bow or
Bend, but to
Achieve greatness!

You are not the Sun
The Wonderess May 2020
I existed without you
Before
I do not need you that is
For sure
Although our love was
Intense
And it may be trying to
Commence
With my life, all on my own,
there is a difference between
Lonely and alone.
You played with my heart like
A yo-yo
In a painful game of
To-and-fro
You could not love me
Or let me go
But I am gone now
So...
You undermined my incredible
Worth
But you are not the sun, and I
The Earth
I radiate my own powerful
Light,
I possess incomprehensible
Might

Out, out your evil is
Cast
Your kind of darkness will
Never
Last.

Ocean Eyes

Don’t be fooled by his
Ocean blue eyes
Hidden beyond them

Those ocean blue eyes
That with a blink will
Blacken your skies

Don’t be fooled by those
Ocean blue eyes:
The monster wears a
Handsome disguise
