The rainbow

Whenever I view the rainbow,
Glinting throughout the sky,
I can’t help but to think about you,
And your multiple indentities.
Because the rainbow is multicolored.
And reflects the visible spectrum.
Your personalities reflect these colors,
Because theirs so many to choose from.
One day your as beautiful as the blue sky.
The next,
As bright as the yellow sun.
Some days,
You make me feel like royalty,
Such as African purple.
Then you can be angry,
As crimson red.
Becoming cold and gray.
Sometimes your heart is black,
Which makes me turn around and walk away.
Some days you’re innocent.
Or as pure as fresh snow.
Sometimes you’re vibrant green,
Some days you seem stuck in between.
Like an orange sky under twilight.
You’re as colorful as a rainbow,

That appears as soon as the storm passes…

Mortality’s Game

Beneath starry skies
Eyes divine the lies
Of an unkind mind.

Inner audience
Applaud a Godliness,
Destructive and callous.

Yet race time’s clock
Like a fired glock.
Dodge Death and decay.

Goals are our souls
Filling the holes
Of mortality’s game.

Juxtaposition III

I
Her beauty is like the dawn of the day,
Gentle and mild, pricking the strings of hay,
In such melody that outweighs the hearts,
Bewitching all mouths to move in her art.
Even the sun grudge thy lofty beauty,
That she stay awhile, you to keep beaming.
II
Like the ocean in multifacity;
Torpedo like a comet, calm in deal.
Metamorphosing such that none could get
The notion tossed at the humans that begged.
As they ply through knowledge, little they know.
Like this colleen: more complex as she grow.
Jura and Libra failed in description
Of this angelic made human ocean.

The Rain Drop and Leaf

the beautiful leaf
under the shadow of clouds
glistens when the sun shines
illuminates in the moon lightlonging to meet its lover
caring for self it nurtures
self development matters
by self independence it flatters

the cloud attracted by its beauty
could not approach as it has its duty
signals the leaf by turning grey
‘your lover is on its way’

leaf blushes without any cream
day goes by with the only dream
dressed up with properly brushed mane
kissing and hugging its lover to erase the long distance pain

the rain drop meets its love of life
the one and only would be wife
reacting to the seductive time
copulating in rhythm divine ||

Afraid

I see you hiding in a corner,

Afraid of the calm before no storm.
I see you have your fears,
Yet you refuse to shed a tear
Or even call for help.
I see you walking in silence,
Drawn towards all the noise
That you hope will help drown
All the voices inside your head,
Like you’re afraid of what you might tell yourself.

And I can’t help wondering what it is
That you keep telling yourself
When all the world offers is silence.
I wonder what it is
That you can’t save yourself from,
I wonder who it is
That you’re running away from,
I wonder what it is
That keeps you fighting on your own,
When I can never even hear
You call for help.

I wonder if you know
That I know this battle is yours,
You must win it on your own.
But I also wonder if you know
That you don’t have to do it all alone.
So if you choose, you can take my hand
So you don’t have to be alone.
So if you want, I’ll sing to you
So you won’t have to shut the voices out.
I wonder if you know
That I know it’s hard when you’re afraid,
And it’s difficult to forgive yourself.
So it’s okay to ask for help,
Because I’ve been afraid too.

Encased

everything i know about who i am is inside this shell

i see
what my eyes behold in a world belonging to my perspective
i feel
what my being is influenced by
i breathe
what my body needs for survival
i smell
what my nostrils encounter in this life
i touch
what my hands need to grasp
i hear
what sounds out around me
i taste
what i satiate my body with

this body is a vessel
holding in place
all that is required
to thrive

constant motion
inside the barrier
which separates
the external of my perspective

a heart beating on its own
food moving through long tubes
enzymes, bugs, and fungus
breaking it all down

the mind focused
on a gazillion things
while i’m focused
on a trillion more

this being i am
only knows about this one life
i reside in an
encased consciousness

Silence

Stand atop a mountain
Death and peril far below
And feel the inner calling
Of the fire and the snow.

Stand atop a mountain
Lodged betwixt the war and peace
And see the inner beauty
Of the angel and the beast.

Stand atop a mountain
Beat the drum and stare ahead
And feel the inner music
Of the living and the dead.

Stand atop a mountain
That from birth has called your name
And feel the inner heaven
That puts all discourse to shame.
