The Sea

See the sea outside, apart Feel the ocean, inside my heart, Where the  waves  look  contained Yet , no less turbulent they remained The  inner ocean cries And spills out of my eyes Outer ocean sheds tears Through the skies No one will ever know Both seas have lost their […]

Music

The titillating music Flowed melodiously From somewhere far away It reached my ears That longed to hear Some beautiful melody It swung me from my reverie Into which I had trailed Unknowingly into lands unknown There I grazed with my eyes The receding, fading beauty of nature That once bloomed […]

Despair

I thought I shook him off this year. Sometime around January they said, those voices. crawling under the covers, over my bare legs. Bruises dotting the sides of my thighs – yellowed and pale – the blood is hot in my ears but cold through my limbs. The lights in […]
