Forever Muse

Why don’t you move to sunshine
where her sublime beauty lying on sandy shore
waiting

Why don’t you give up the fear
that all love affair ends
the same

You see everything as beautiful
in its own way

Her brokenness will always inspire you
to splash words on canvas
creating an impression masterpiece
each and every time your heart
broken by her inability
to love

Monochrome Admirer

I spot her from afar.
She is as beautiful as yesterday long ago
carrying herself in poise and elegance.
I am so eager to greet her
ignoring how time faded her colours.
Will she blush for me,
her monochrome admirer?

The Poor and The Rich Support Each Other

The Living Poetry word prompt – Especially, Sale, Spirit

Charity ball is a perfect sale network opportunity
especially for semi drunken business representatives
All deals achieved spring from seemingly innocent chitchatting
in the high spirit of supporting those in need

Gazelle

How graceful you are moving swiftly in the barren land.
Your agile beauty leaps upon the mountains and skip upon the hills.
I see your elegance by the stream.
Your tender and expressive eyes are full of innocence.
How vulnerable they are!
I wonder who will deliver you from the chase of the cheetah.

The Hope Reminder

He carried two rocks in his pocket.
It started as an anxiety alleviator.
There was something about
these minerals clanking together.
Their excruciating fiction in time
grew into soothing melody.

He keeps carrying these two
now edgeless rocks
hoping his turbulent marriage
will soon be harmonious canoeing
after such long-haul conflict.
These two rocks are his hope reminder.

A Lost Friend

Just when I thought
all these have passed
tears fell
to prove me wrong

I am left
to carry on living
and celebrating milesones
without you here

You have been trapped
in that moment
which was too soon
to say goodbye

I can’t wrap my arms
around a memory
to be comforted
I can’t bid you farewell
knowingly in my heart
you still live, laugh
and cry
