As I love …..

As my mind goes blank, Shutting out all the deafening noises, Boarding up the crevices, That streamed in biting shafts. I float aimlessly hither and thither, I know not, And I don't want to know. A reverie, An idyllic repose, A blissful ecstasy. The world is my own, No pretences, No shams, No charades. Honest… Continue reading As I love …..

Finding yourself

She had learnt how to love herself, And that was the most dangerous weapon of all. She changed the hoary paradigms, As she set precursors new. New beginnings, Distant shores, Lands beyond and unknown, She strove to find her lot.

A rare one

She was one of those rare ones, She could feel the sun, Warming her skin in the coldest winters, For she loved herself, And the whole world loved her for it.

Mystical

The enigma, The mystical aura, The halo bright, It was to be awed, As all stood surprised. She was not to be seen, She was veiled with shrouds tight, She was hidden under covers of ritual, She was incarcerated for what she was. But the Braveheart she was, She did not give up hope, She… Continue reading Mystical

A wish

I wish to see the world, Leaving through my mind's door, Without one single glance behind me. For the sky hangs heavy on my shoulders, I feel claustrophobic, Like I have forgotten how to breathe. As the distant thunder rolls, I long to see where it roams. To feast my eyes upon something new, And… Continue reading A wish
