Stories

Listen to the Spoken Word version of this poem *** I wanna live where the stories are! I don’t wanna live in a world without stories! I want to make people feel, I want to make people dream, I want them to smile, to chuckle, I want them to feel overwhelmed, Just as I feel [...]

Why Me?

Why Me?

Listen to the Spoken Word version of this poem *** Why me? A question I ask myself often these days. I ponder, I wonder, I sit idle. I shed tears every now and then, Even though I know, all my tears are in vain. Why me? I’ve never done wrong to anyone, I’ve never wished [...]

The Color of My Skin

The Color of My Skin

“It’s so exotic”, “You look like Pocahontas”, “I love how tanned you are”, “Oh, your color is so sexy”, The color of my skin, It’s not for you to objectify, it’s a part of me. The color of my skin is who I am! This golden hue, the wavy black hair, These gloomy dark eyes, [...]

Sharp, edgy like her glances, She swiftly moves her seductive eyes to the other corner of the room, Trying to hold back her desires. Soft, round like her voice that can melt his heart. “What do we do tonight, my lover, Where do we go? How much time do you need to explore, The taste [...]

My Song

My Song

The momentum - solemn stillness holds, Lifting up my spirits, high, High above the blue sky; in form of rays from the Sun, It shimmers like a thousand fireflies, Up, high above the sky.  I hear the sound of solitude, ringing into my ears; Telling me the tales of love, Almost impossible to recognize my [...]
