Pendulum

 

 

Another morning and I feel

alive and happy

 

my mind is a pendulum of

emotions

 

touching fire, ice, and rain in

different spheres of senses

 

in a desire to bloom each

day into layers of cosmic

rainbows

 

I inflict sharp pains of love

in my being

 

a happy living’s essence

circles around me this

morning too

 

while shades of laughter

and tears lift the curtains to

begin my play on the stage

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Time

 

 

The present is laughing

at my fragile heart

 

time mocks and calls me

weak

 

a lost one had a purpose

served in my life and gone

but I hold on to the absence

 

I know, I know the meaning of

letting go and growing ice cold

yet I let time make fun of me

 

since I have loved selflessly

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Frost

 

 

I am the frost that you wish to

leave behind for a sun filled

meadow

 

when was the last time you

walked beside me

 

where is the road now that we

took together in our prime

 

I have a bitter side that you wish

to explore but not experience

 

a heart that beats to reach out

and hold you deeper

 

but fades with each smile that

my lips spread to hide those lost

dreams
