WHITE

white image.jpg

Clothed in white

Not dead

Not in Heaven

Not even at my wedding

Far from it

All in white

Running down the hallway

Searching for the exit door

Overdosed on drugs

Staring at faces so unfamiliar

Laughter as loud as thunder

Insanity all around me

Running as fast as I can

Cages

Locked doors

Needles and insanity

Im running

Lost in a labyrinth

Searching for an exit door

The doctors chase me down the hallway

Like demons in a nightmare

They all look enraged and desperate

Yelling and cursing

Warning and screaming

I need a way out!!!

An open window!

A trapdoor!

Anything!

I need a way out!!!

The drugs begin to kick in

I cant feel my tongue anymore

My heart is racingpoundingfluttering

My legs betray me

My sight fails me

The hallway begins to morph

Im no longerI cant

The doctors now look like huge ugly insects

I fall on the ground

But it feels like a bed

Its soft

I close my eyes

Welcoming the soft clouds

Drifting off

Into my little world of beautiful insanity

LITTLE WRITER GIRL

LITTLE WRITER GIRL

 

Little Writer Girl

I see your pain

You sit in the shadows

You pour out your heart in ink

Your sheet is filled

Your lips may be pink

But you speak no words

All you do is sink!

You sink into an abyss of sorrow

You glance at the mirror and see another

A wrong reflection!

You see the “you” you are creating

A picture of a girl lost in the woods

A child forgotten

A lion injured

You sit on your favorite chair

You spill ink like blood

You stain the sheets of white

Every word tells its own tale

You block out the world

And dish out words

You are disappearing with every written word

You don’t even know it

I see the art

But the image of you is faded

I squint to really see you

But it’s blurry

Where are you?!!

Where is the girl I used to know!!!

Come back home!!!

Don’t be lost in the world you are creating

You are needed here too

Don’t relocate to your world of fiction

Someone here needs you to be great

Someone needs you to see herself clearly

But you are far away

Your words remain

But you are fading

What’s going on?

Wake up, Writer Girl!

Come back home!

Love awaits you on this side

Love you will never see if you fade away

Love you deserve

Love you don’t need to earn

Come back, Writer Girl!

Come home!

WISDOM

WISDOM.jpg

 

Search for me if you wish

Great and sound words I’ll teach

A path to truth I’ll lead

I’ll pull out the weeds

To give you counsel so priceless

All because of me you’ll be fearless

See how you glow in the dark

I’ll make you leave a mark

They might envy

They are all folly-savvy

Don’t let them break your spirit

Don’t let them make you retreat

Move closer and let me teach you a thing or two

I’m not too far…put on your shoes

I’ll bring you great wealth

I’ll teach you how to live in good health

I’ll make you lead great nations

And give you the antidote to all situations

 

Take a step closer

Let me introduce myself to you

 

“My name is Wisdom

Heed to my instructions

And I’ll protect you”

THE ENEMY AT CLOSE RANGE

THE ENEMY AT CLOSE RANGE.jpg

The enemy at close range
Loyalty sold for a piece of meat, a coin or a good dose of gossip

 

The enemy at close range
A friend with evil intentions
Searching for loopholes

 

The enemy at close range
Embraces you with a smile
Helps you clean your gun
But pulls the trigger when you turn your back

 

The enemy at close range
Disguised as a sheep but as sly as a fox
Laughs with you at your table
But as soon as it’s dusk
He runs into the shadows to break bread with your mockers

 

The enemy at close range
Knows your every move
Hears your every word
Spills all your secrets

 

The enemy at close range
Breaks your heart without a warning
And gives you quinine in place of honey

 

The enemy at close range
Is a friend with evil intentions

A HARMATTAN LETTER

a-harmattan-letter

 

As the dust settles on your windscreen
I appear
I’m here!
I’ll write you a harmattan letter
Yeah, that’s me!
If I wish to be naughty,
I’ll draw you a caricature
I’ll write you a love message
Or maybe I’ll instruct you,
“Wash me!”
“Dust me!”
“Clean me!”
Or
“Please, love me!”
Hehehe…
I’ll write you a harmattan letter
And then, I’ll run away!
Far enough to watch you scream
To see you shout
And curse your heart out
How amusing that would be!
Mischief at its peak!
Oh! How I love the harmattan!
Dusty and dry!
Brown everywhere
Dust on cars
Dust on my car
Dust on your car!
So as you read this poem
Please check your windscreen
You’ve got mail, honey!
I sent you a letter
A sweet harmattan letter
Read it with a tender heart
Hehehe…
Lots of love from me
Your sweet sweet Harmattan Joker
XOXO

YOU WILL BE FINE

you-will-be-fine_small
 

I mean you no harm
I just want to soothe the pain like a balm
And cause you to be calm
Here, take my hand
Let’s sit here and listen to the band
Let’s watch them play our favorite song
Oh…it’s been soooo long!
They play music so good
It feeds my soul like food
Here we are at night
Listening to good Christmas tunes under the moonlight
I know how sad you are
You gaze at me but you seem so far
Don’t let a broken heart cause you to forget…
…to forget the sweet melody of life
Cast away the knife
Don’t bruise your heart some more
Let the tears pour
But don’t let them pour forever
Don’t let them win…never!
Look…you are worth more that diamonds
I can write this on the wall with crayons

 

“You are beautiful!
You are loved!
You are strong!
You are blessed!
You will be fine!
This too shall pass!”

 

So, cheer up
Chin up
Don’t give up
You will be fine
Just give it time

 

In the meantime…
…let’s sway to this beautiful Christmas melody
Oh! Such sweet sweet melody!
You will be fine, my darling!
You will be fine!

Keresimesi

keresimesi

 

Keresimesi (Christmas)

Jesu Kristi (Jesus Christ)

The reason

The reason why we celebrate

The reason for the season

A King so great

The birthday that causes all to unite

Friends and family we invite

A day of love

A season of love

Gift giving

Busy kitchens

Carol singing

And great thanks we’ll be giving

Keresimesi (Christmas)

A day of delight

Kind thoughts

Warm hugs

Warm pots

And happy children

Summon them to come worship the King!

On this great day

Summon them to come!

A beautiful song we’ll play

So much singing and dancing

So much excitement

So much laughter

Joy right now and hereafter

Jesu Kristi (Jesus Christ)

The reason for all the merriment

Jesu Kristi (Jesus Christ)

The birthday of the King

Great gifts we bring

Keresimesi (Christmas)

Let’s sing a song of praise

The name of the King we raise

A song of gratitude

With a jolly attitude

We dance tirelessly

We laugh carelessly

With love in our hearts

Compassion and generosity

We spread the love

 

Keresimesi (Christmas)

Come let’s worship the King

Keresimesi (Christmas)

Come let’s worship

UNGUARDED HEART

unguarded-heart

 

Like a predator

He’ll watch you

Hoping

Waiting

Knowing

Knowing you’ll give in

And then he’ll feed

He’ll feed off your emotions

Your thoughts

Your rage

Your hostile opinions

He can predict your response

Years of watching you

Your fragile heart unaware

There is no fence around your heart, darling!

Anything goes in

Anything grows in your garden

Your heart is like a prostitute

Anything goes!

Anything…no filter

Your heart is loose!

You listen to their gossip

Their filthy lies

You listen…

And like a sponge

Your heart soaks up the lies…

Soaked in filth and lies

You absorb it and it poisons you

The poison sips in

Poisoning your thoughts

Your reasoning

Your decisions

Your perspective

Your heart darkens

Your heart hardens

You left your heart unguarded!

Now, he has access!

Like a predator

He is watching

Waiting

Knowing

Silently watching

Unguarded heart

The thief waits…
