these old walls


these old walls hold such memories
it is at the witching hour
ghosts come to play, cleverly
I sit still like a wallflower
lost in mystical sensory

moonlight


it was
young love
shared kisses
under moonlight

the softness
of lips
upon mine
brought bliss

even after
years passed
no longer
your favorite

memories of
your eyes
in moonlight
remains clear

I watch small droplets of blood
fall onto porcelain sink
the things we do to be
considered desirable

first day of school


Facebook filled
with first day
of school pics

not just proud
parents but
grandmas too

me, single
and alone
just scrolls by

changing

I wish things
stayed the same
but all things
change like
trees in autumn
switching to
golden hues
I follow ocean
tides wherever
they go

what lied inside my heart

but I struggled with
forming correct syllables
making coherent sentences

so I stammered through
awkward lines and pauses
hoping you understood

but when you smiled
at me I knew that
it all made sense

tranquility


to be in this place 
of tranquility 
is to be free

to lounge under
blue skies void 
of gray clouds 

how I wish 
I could spend
all eternity there
for my mind 
and body is 
drained from 
this rollercoaster 
called life
