He knows me loving and tender

he thought me innocent and fragile

he is still looking for the sensitive in me

having no idea how heartless i’ve become..

She stole my illusions

those of comfort and pleasure

those of where to find leisure

she stole my confusions

those about what to trust or fear


she taught my hands to wander

touch whatever is yonder

if it put my heart to slumber

towards her i endlessly  ran

and hard slaps silenced my sighs

when my breast started to ripe

i found myself a soulless friend

someone to show my womanly thighs


she taught me how to fake laughter

to let my beauty learn to wafter

to lure men with whispers

then i would find my illusions

hidden in their scent and touch

find my dreams and confusions

in the heat of their maddening lust

if it means following a road

that leads to a tunnel with no light at the end

or walking on thorns towards a heartache with no end

i’ll follow it blindly..to fall in the arms of you

ignoring through every step i’m the other woman

the less right, the less deserving

i don’t know love, i need not your love

if this passion you can keep ablaze

so i’ll keep playing with this fire so strong

even if it secretly burns my insides

and towards the loneliness  it hides

i’will  follow it forever blindly

Once again last night



Once again last night

i woke up sweating from our endless race

at your mercy, you have me whole

you are my guardian angel,

and a merciless predator

you are my safe haven

if  am not in perfect denial


once again last night

i woke up tormented from your voice

your monstrous ways, never ending as they are

you affectionate motherly ways

if am  not another motherless child

Today i came
Not with colors
Not with secrets
I sailed from the inside

(i came alone)
(and i came to you)

Today i came,
i came bare soul
My heart is naked
My shell is broken
My veil is torn off

(so that you can see)
(and see through all i am)

Love me dear,
love me bare
My secrets told
My spirit raw
Love me like this

(love all that i am)
(and love all that i have)

Aches have been pulling me up like stitches
this agony of wanting you..
the insatisfaction of having you
but not having you whole
having only a half of you

aches in my nails that want to be dug deep in you
close but not close enough , wondering

how close enough would be enough for me?
even inside of your skin would feel like miles away

aches running in the veins of me
wondering if only it could be, then how it could be?
loving you..but not loving you only
loving you that it couldn’t feel any more lonely

aches creep up like an incurable illness
in my diseased conscience..
effects of your careless tenderness burn
aches, a muse to my kind of scared loving
silencing this evil yearning..
born of our midnight sinning

aches like a much cruel sentence
but guilty I plead endless
and endlessly I will ache..for you



“Make me a promise”


Like a lone star in my chattered sky
i still risk holding on to you
My body hold so little life in it
time runs out and my hope keep on fading

and i get scared

when your schedule overflows
the floods of this busy world
will you try and fix me in?
When your feet are a few yards
from power,wealth and fame
will you step back to taste on my salty tears?

Tell me this

those people of the world you run in
surely match your philosophical thinking
when you meet the so wise and intelligent
won’t i find myself aside like a broken toy?

Sometimes i just can’t know

if my skin turns purple
in the coldness of a hospital bed
will the name you call me still be “honey”?

When i close my eyes and lose myself in a coffin to be hidden underground
will you put a rose beside me
When the world forgets me
when there is nothing left of me
will you tell your friends my story?

” I wrote this poem because  people love us when its more easy and convenient, when we are lovable but not when we have lost color and shape its easy to be abandoned ”


“Shadows of bliss”


(photo credit fine art America)

Shadows of bliss

laughters and tears
hallowness or mirth
promises but lies
a blessing became a curse

Stealing me slowly
hurting me quietly
i wanted it hopelessly
yes love is heavenly
but overdose is deadly

In that twilight cadence
of our bittersweet romance
i cried to get a chance
but tears made no difference
and i will bear the offense

The touch of your fingers
on my soft frail feathers
now only a memory lingers
in a heart full blisters
and your toxic whispers

“When they ask”


I will tell them that our love was lost

in the blue under the eclipsing sun

I will tell them that our friendship broke
inside of me underneath my bruised wrist

I will tell them that our hope shattered and
sank in the seas above layers of paraffin

I will tell them that our hands lost hold
in the meadows between flowers and dust

I will tell them that we merged in another world
and buried our laughters forever in the past

I will tell them that we had a treasure dearer than gold
and that for me somethings never last

I will tell them how you stepped aside and walked away
I will tell them that love dies anyway..
