Black Orchid

I am so wide-awake, inside somebody else’s dream
You’ve drifted so far away from my heart it would seem
Beautiful orchid, said love would never die
Could burn in a rage, heart stopped deep inside
I am so sure; everything’s lost in losing you

I wish you were here, seeing the tears I cry
We are oceans apart, love was so real from the start
I am dying inside, I lost everything, and I can’t feel
Only pain, darkness bleeds inside

There is no mistake, you are drifted in others arms
But love was so real; I thought we could never part
Black orchid bleeds, thought love could never die
Was lost in hope, heart eternally cries

There is no mistake, I have lost everything
I lost you, now I eternally die inside

Once

Once we walked among the clouds
We felt the warmth, a satin shroud
We shared our souls, our mates we found
We bared our needs, we heard each sound

Once we gently passed our passion
An angels mist breathed a perfect fashion
We wandered the seas, we floated the breeze,
We spoke our silence, yet heard our decrees

Once we dreamed, we planned, we hoped
With endangered hearts we passionately eloped
My soul wrapped yours in warmth of silk
A guardian heart, a mother’s milk…

Once the breeze enchanted our lives
As floating doves with effortless strides
We mended as embellished pearls,
So gently stroked, warm water curls…

Once we were, love innocent, real, and pure
Unending, we thought we would endure..

Innocence

Quiet still night

INNOCENCE Eight steps down, And two steps right Rests a haunting frown,… Such a hideous sight. Damnation and judgement Self-righteous pair . . . If opinions were reversed Would you ache in despair? Or do you realize The pain you inflict On innocent helpless eyes Whose sentence you depict? Oh poor misguided souls! How empty […]

Innocence

INNOCENCE

Eight steps down,
And two steps right
Rests a haunting frown,
Such a hideous sight.

Damnation and judgement
Self-righteous pair . . .
If opinions were reversed
Would you ache in despair?

Or do you realize
The pain you inflict
On innocent helpless eyes
Whose sentence you depict?

Oh poor misguided souls!
How empty you must be . . .
To judge a baby boy
Who loved you desperately.

Rose & Pearls

Rose and Pearls

I wonder what this moment means?
I wonder, do my actions matter?
I see the hope and empty vivid dreams
I wonder, do you care as little as it seems?

If only it could have been what it could become
had we learned wisely to carefully choose
If the thought and passion that I open my soul, causes a single moment’s chatter
We are where we choose, nothing to gain, everything to lose…..

If you could feel, could care, would the air feel alive?
would you hope in fragments, or lose in thoughts of needless loss
You pray that perhaps you have touched your heart
A matte blackened rose with a pearl water droplet
You are empty, matte, emotionless, dripping slowly apart.

I’ll be your path to remembrances past
I’ll dream your fear, and empty flattened paths
The presence I am to this haunting water mist
Is a stillbirth in timelessness, loved and kissed…….

After the storm

AFTER THE STORM.
The air is full of after-thunder freshness, And everything rejoices and revives. With the whole outburst of its purple clusters The lilac drinks the air of paradise. The gutters overflow; the change of weather Makes all you see appear alive and new. Meanwhile the shades of sky are growing lighter, Beyond the blackest cloud the height is blue. An artist’s hand, with mastery still greater Wipes dirt and dust off objects in his path. Reality and life, the past and present, Emerge transformed out of his colour-bath. The memory of over half a lifetime Like swiftly passing thunder dies away. The century is no more under wardship: High time to let the future have its say. It is not revolutions and upheavals That clear the road to new and better days, But revelations, lavishness and torments Of someone’s soul, inspired and ablaze. Boris Pasternak…….
