Petals

Soft
Fluttering
Dream

Fragrant
Wedded
Bliss

Lying on frost kissed grounds
Abandoned
But not forgotten

Curled up
Drained
And left for dead

Was that the fate
For which you bloomed?

Social Media

She lives her life in images and status updates
She clings to the words of her favourite celebrities
Her emotions are defined by her ships
And her career by her connections

She lives her life on a screen
She doesn’t know what it’s like to live
To feel true warmth
Not the burn of an artificial, electronic intelligence
On her lap

Love is between characters of her ship
Something she has decided is not for her
But how can she say that
When the experience she feels
Aren’t her own

Media connects us
But disconnects us from what is most important

Would you rather watch your child grow and learn in your arms?
Or read about it off a screen?

Rejection

How it feels
To feel again
The stinging pain
The familiarity

I once lived this life
I do not want to live again
A life of agony
Filled
With sleepless nights

How much longer
Will I last
Under forever crushing power

I want to laugh
To hold
To feel happiness again

How simple
How heartbreaking
A couple words can be

Thank you for trying
You say
Try again next year
You say
Study harder
My parents say

Where is my say?

Empty Once More

There’s an emptiness inside
Like you’re not ever there anymore
But the hollowness is natural
And I feel whole again

For weeks I mourned for you
Begging for your attention
Dreaming of a future
Better passed

But no more
I have learned to live
As I have before
To live
And love
Myself

I don’t need you
To know my own beauty
And the truth
And power behind my words

I am strong
With or without you

Unhinged

Too long have I lain
Locked in my ivory tower
Too long have I held back
The talents that made my name

I am a writer
By any other name
I would remain as sweet

My idols remain unknown
My craft, unappreciated
Only when I am need
Does my name rise to the occasion

I do not exist solely for your pleasure
I think
I feel
I love
As you do

So why do you treat me as lesser?
Does being a scientist make you better?

Consider a world without music
Without art
Without theatre
Would that be a life worth living?

I won’t let your judgementality hold me back any further
I will paint this world with my brush
I will watch you crumble under the weight of my words
With the same pleasure
You felt as you watched me suffer

Kiss of A Lifetime (Alternate)

To think of you when we shared our first kiss
Still fills my heart with a certain joy;
Sublime in every way. What bliss
Lies there beneath that flawless finish boy?
Would you be willing to share with me this
One life, this one eternal dream? Enjoy
Me for now. Time is but a fleeting wisp,
Is fickle and fades. My love is a ploy
Designed to draw you in and murder trust
I will forever love you, but in lust

Kiss of A Lifetime

To think of you when we shared our first kiss
Still makes my heart fill with a certain joy;
Sublime in every way. What bliss
Lies there beneath that flawless finish boy?
Would you share with me just one secret to
Your great success? Let me share this one life
This one eternal dream with you. You knew
My heart, my mind, and used me to create strife.
I blame you not. It was my choice to love
You and give you all that I was and am.
I was afraid, but you assured me of
A future of sweet nothings. But ugh! Damn
You for the feelings I have now. I trust
I will forever love you, but in lust
