Invisible Maladies #Rhyme #Unapologetic

An alluring, ambient attraction
blessedly baited by beauty,
Calloused cancer remains chaotic
disaster dividing duties.
.
Enhanced emotions are ethereal
frolicking in faded fantasy,
Greatly guarded by gradience
hung in the haze, happily.
.
Iridescently illuminating ire
though we jest in jubilant jargon,
Killing with kindness, none-too-keen
languidly, the loss does largen.
.
Manipulated by masterful malady
now trying to neutralize the nagging,
Openly observing the ominous
preparing for prevalent parading.
.
Quietly, I wait in queue
raging in restless remorse,
Silently, I solemnly swear
to tango in twisted traverse.
.
Unfortunate in my unrest
variably lost within the vortex,
Wistfully wishing for wellness
exhausted with bodily threats.
.
Yearning, desperately, for youthful repeat,
no longer zapped by weakened energy.

Blissfully Blazed #FreeVerse #Unapologetic

It’s euphoric
An intense kind of rush
My head spins ‘round
My body attempts to fly
Paradise consumes me
Just one more hit-
.
Inject me
Ecstasy-laden veins
A stomach filled with butterflies
I can’t get enough
Your touch, I crave
Your kiss, I’ve prayed for-
.
Molten lava blooms
I’m melting
Left breathless, and shaking
Desire weighs me down
Heavy with desperation
Passion-filled eyes-
.
Yes, please
I’m begging you
Make me feel, again
I’m unraveling
Captivated by your stare
Make me yours-

I’m Alone… #Rhyme #Unapologetic

Surrounded by people
and still, I despair
Lost beneath the steeple
of a demon-filled lair
.
Laughter rings throughout
maniacal in its sound
Forced from comfort, with a shout
left alone, cold, and bound
.
Where once I called home
‘twas bright with love
Has now been thrown
into the pits, from above
.
Darkening my doorway
an emotion, so profound
No room for blessed leeway
simply shoved into the ground
.
Stepped on, and kicked
mangled, and bruised
Left struggling in the thick
my heart brutally used
.
Alone in this house
entrapped by empty walls
No one answers when I shout
but the echoes in the halls

Indebted #Rhyme #Unapologetic

The sun does set, similar to how it rose
My thoughts take a turn down a familiar road
Oh, what a life, that I am blessed to live
Ever so grateful for the chances it gives
I do often wander, though, as the stars appear
back to that moment, in October of last year (2019)
I learned how close to death that I came
My world then tilted, and the floor went away
Shocked was an understatement, fear was felt
I laughed to hide the pain of the cards that I was dealt
An ugly hand, and I just wanted to fold
but, surrounded by family, I had to be bold
A lifetime of sickness, and medicines, too
Though, day after day, it gets easier to chew
So, I choke down the pills, and hold back the tears
Thankful to the Goddesses that I am still here
As the sun does set on a beautiful day
I think back to the sunrise that paved the way

Invisible Ink #Rhyme #Unapologetic


There are bags that rest beneath troubled eyes
There are hardened lines that dress-up her face
A brow that stays furrowed, knotted, and tied
Permanent frustration consuming space
.
Slightly, she’ll sigh, her thoughts will bring repose
Relaxation will show within plump lips
Unaware, she’ll pinch the bridge of her nose
Her pen, so smooth, will create curves, and dips
.
Frozen thoughts will leave her without traction
Lingering whispers will be left unheard
A stoic face will mask satisfaction
Many will attempt to translate her words
.
A plethora of distant emotions
Will lay waste inside permeable veins
Sanity will fight to keep the motion
While insanity will fight to remain
.
Chaos will consume attempted stanzas
While meters will try for calmness, and peace
Syllables show up, attempting grand ones
While the story being told, reads between
.
So, what lay hidden within blackened ink?
Invisible tales of a poet’s shrink.

Buried Alive #Rhyme #Unapologetic

A stone’s throw away
from waving my white flag
An exhausted inner spirit
a voice that always nags
.
A verbal war of emotions
victorious in their screams
Calling upon my demons
a vortex of disturbing dreams
.
Cascading, saline rivers
dampen heated skin
Tracks of my afflictions
lead on to hidden sins
.
Crimson drops of dew
leak from damaged veins
Chaos consumes my peace
fatality takes the reigns
.
Twisted like a pretzel
writhing against the dead
Its sting becomes internal
as I drown beneath my dread
