My Thoughts

Photo by Pixabay from Pexels

I hate being left alone with my thoughts
When fear and doubt cast a dark shadow
Sneaking in their friends through the crevices
For a pity party and depression for the host.

I don’t mind being left alone with my thoughts
When joy and peace are all sunshine
Inviting their friends for a tea party
And words of encouragement and affirmation for the host.

Fallen stars

Falling stars,
On gravel deepening the scars
No drink strong enough in the bars
To soothe the throbbing scars.

Fallen stars,
Expedienting to spars
Nothing better than the fastest cars
For that temporary illusion of healed scars.

That night I dreamt

Photo uploaded from Google+

That night I dreamt,

Of the sun flirting with the leaves

And the joy and peace it gives,

Of the wind blowing in my hair

And the freedom from the air,

Of the silent noise from the swishing trees

And the calmness to my soul it gives,

Of the sound of water flowing down the stream

And how with laughter, I screamed.

The Show

A fleeting moment

Hearts and minds in sync with contentment Ignoring the potent

Of the green smile from the opponent.

Dazzling with panache

Hips and feet moving with swash

Left, right, smile flashed

Silent prayer of the enemy squashed.

Too Close to the Sun

Got this somewhere in the archives . It’s from when I had just started writing. Men I have grown a lot!

Cupid’s unexpected visit

Gave you a new set of wings

And along with it a bender for risks

So, you set out to test its speed

Out in the cool breeze.

On each gained speed

The wind gained its strength

And before you knew it

You were moving up straight.

You made a stop at the stars

It was beautiful there at the stars

All your wounds became nothing but scars

But then,

Greed caught up with you

So, you set out for the sun

On your way,

The view of the moon was breathtaking

And I swear it was yours for the taking

But if your eyes by greed has been overtaken

Then your heart by greed becomes driven

You decided to go straight for the sun

And that is when your downfall began.

The heat became too much

It became clear that you were to either

retreat or crash

But you had just come too far to be stopped by that!

That is when you dived straight for the sun.

You had the moon but it was just not

enough

You went too close to the sun

And now it has melted you down.

Little Bird

Little bird settled on my window sill

Looking for food or time to kill

She pecked around for a deal to seal

I think she would have better luck way way up the hill.
