Reflections (2) – Lockdown

lockdown

Reading Time: < 1 minute LOCKDOWN   A particle so small, shaped like a crown. A disease threatening to bring us down. And yet, in the distance, I find hope, a brilliance. I will march on into the daylight, I will endure and fight. Togetherness from you, is what I need, And on your love and compassion, I feed. The […]

Reflections (1) – Gazing Into A Mirror

Reading Time: < 1 minute Sitting opposite you, I have the unnerving impression of gazing into a mirror, Where the reflection of my face is conspicuously absent. We are so obviously different, you and I. But at the same time, we are mirror images. We have, dare I say, the same differences. We run away from the shadows belonging to […]

Eyes

Reading Time: < 1 minute As I look into her eyes, Noticing the reflection of her soul, I fear the worst has yet to come, When our gaze will part, When our hands will lose touch.

They dream of somewhere else. As I […]

Reading Time: < 1 minute Lost girl of Syria, Your heart shines as a diamond, Casting its spell in the desert storm, Shedding its tears over the trodden blades of grass, You asked for nothing and obtained less. Your love shines through a darkened skin, Your soul, entrapped in troubled times, Not knowing whether to escape or stay, Searches desperately […]

El Paso And Dayton

Reading Time: < 1 minute The running of blood, The shedding of tears, Escaping from the fear of those left behind, To never see again, to love no more. The evilness of a stray bullet, The madness of a look, That look of anger, Dissipating all that is human, Dissolving all that is tolerance. The dismembered souls of those, Weaving […]
