Half-Hearted Smiles

I wore a smile upon my face
I wore it wide, felt out of place.
Glass heart inside
fractures at will
will of yours
cracks no longer heal
I wore my smile, thin and pressed
I wore it high, hiding depressed
I skipped along a jagged path
I skipped so fast,
I could not last.
The smile I wore, faded
Trapped on my face
my smile dispersed
Broken inside
no one can fix
A shattered heart
you left

Wistful Goodbyes

Everything dies even a broken hearted smile
crumpled and trodden
love left,
there’s no more.
Everything dies
even tear stained goodbyes
once hopeful and alive
building invisible lies;
yes, everything dies
blue eyes…

Natures’ Life Creations

Andalusian skies
Beneath it
Coral blaze
Defining all its hues
Entices creative
Gather all its notes
Hear melodies of song
Igniting imaginations
Just pure creations.
Kestrels in the air
Looping prey of theirs,
(Moments of natural fight)
Only way
-Part of its cycle
-Quelling for survival.
Reality versus fiction
So what’s your latest contradiction?
Transcending inspirational
Worry of
X-rated taboo findings?
Young minds trapped in mush
Zionistic society rush.

Innocence of You

I cherish each moments shared
each word which pass through your cherry lips
I cherish every highs and lows
each time you cried, then said hello
I cherish the salvation you bring
not knowing the joys of what you sing
I cherish every breath you take
despite the darks, you know each fake
I cherish you, and your bravado
though bashful still, you outshine most
but the most precious gift, I cherish the most
is your innocent eyes, which light up our lives.

Clouds Beneath Our Feet

Upon a ledge did she prevail,
clouds beneath her feet
swimming in it, a web of lies
cruel intentions
Storms clash into her sides
she trembles standing tall
her truth
she won’t allow to crumble
supports her to not fall.
Reaching out,
she beckons me
to glide onto her path
to swim through waves
to calm the seas
to stand beside her
to see.

Not once did she speak a word
her gestures sang loud,
clearing the fog between my mind
allowing me to see humankind.

Upon a ledge did we prevail
clouds beneath our feet
swimming in it, a web of lies
cruel intentions
and deceit.

Petals’ White

My petals’ are bright white
gleaming in the sunlight
dancing with light breeze
some days a Waltz
My petals’ gleam iridescent hues
drenched in rain perfume
swaying under moonlight
on tiptoes
I amuse.
My petals’ wilt in heat
sand embedded between my feet
tangled in a web of weeds
extending roots, scattering seeds.
My petals’ glisten in showers
iced dews
crystal blue
white snow embalming flowers
my petals’
in snow towers…

The Golden Gate

She left a light glow in her head
Hope she called it instead of dread
She adorned it with petals, feathers and ink
She dared not to let it slip, fall or blink;
and upon a ledge she perched real still
wondering how long it would break her will
knowing that every hill she climbed
a cliff, a mountain into sublime
she wondered if her fate prevails
despite the storms, rain and hails
what if it burst the bubble-wrapped?
And the light she nursed dimmed into black?

How could she cope?
How would she hope..?

Without thinking any-more
she let her will drop onto the floor
Allowing vultures to circle in
To peck and flesh out her mortal sins
and whilst she waited for her fate
light within her glimmered in haste
clamouring over her- picking up her will
beginning to lure (for fate to seal)
that is when the penny dropped,
the hope she nourished never lacked;
instead it embalmed her with life
with hope she ventured back to the light.

The Depresioning Ring

Some days drag forever a noose slowly coils
entrapping forever of hopeful wills
dusting coarse charcoals on sunlit hills
casting shadows
impregnating ills.

Some days drag forever
your thoughts frozen still
fragmenting jigsaws you peacefully seal.
Days of the never blocks positive thoughts
staircases spiralling to a many lost cause.

Days of the never, will not hear your voice
it penetrates through your void with blurred noise.
Some days are the never and some blossom light,
It’s up to you to give up or fight.

Dangerous Games

A sanction came, knocked on my door
Serving your petition to stop my lure
Did it not occur that these things costs?
In for your pennies, I am in for your loss.

Now that you are here, please do note: pretty pleases will not buy you time to gloat
For each second requested my fees soar high
no second guessing, I tell you no lies.

In for your pennies- I am in for your losses
You owe me mega palaces not flowerbeds or mere mosses
Doing deeds for you does not come cheap
Criminal activities will not help your wife to sleep
You wanted my services.  You signed the dotted line.
Selling your soul only makes you mine.
Your account is now settled, your wife knows nowt
Now step up to my demands before I buy you out.

A sanction came, knocked on my door
Serving your petition to stop my lure
Take a moment to reconsider before my patience runs thin
Your soul walks a thinning line, only I can make you win.

Foreign Familiarities

Call me a foreigner,
I have no voice
My culture means nothing
Differences obscure and make no sense at all.

Call me a brother, a sister
my voice you hear
my culture embraced
differences sets us apart, but we still love one and another.

Call me a comrade
hear my voice
my culture not in the forefront
differences ensures solutions, variety- the spice of life.

Call me a friend
my voice echoes yours
my culture not a problem
differences builds bridges, common grounds cements foundations.

Call me a foreigner
I would like to be heard
My culture embraced -not singled out
differences make me, yet my core is no different than yours.
