Mai

Mai

Platinum locks reflecting the rays of the mighty Sun, An army of unfortunates kneels down just to admire. There she stands after all the burning has been done, A new-born Mother of three winged-sons fresh out of the pyre.

Roulette

Roulette

Does your heart get heavy when you crawl out of her bed? Tiptoeing to the front door before the tears are shed, Little whispers and whimpers are heard, A little after breaking the walls around the heart that once barred.   One fine day I had spent in your company from dusk to dawn, Unaware [...]

Sandcastle

Sandcastle

Leisure let me build my fragile grainy home, Standing timidly, defying its own fate, A faintly gate, and a well-shaped dome.   Centuries gone, lovers have cried, Over the loss of bonds that they nurtured. To have captured, time, oh! Yes, they tried.   The waves hit the walls and melted the land, But the [...]

Broken Frames

Broken Frames

Broken pieces left here and there, Brittle mind of yours without a care. The paper stating our fate is now torn, You might be glad but I'm the one to mourn. Flashbacks, I keep getting them day and night, Printed, now forgotten memories in Black and White, I hold them near to my heart, Moments [...]
