CREATIVE WRITING VERSE 

Love in Cliche

He lay next to her watching her fade away, leaving him. The slight warmth of her body the only reminder that he was not yet alone. He squeezed her hand gently, the only way he can now tell her he still loved her. These hands that once picked him up from the depths of hell and restored him to sanity. The hands that he toyed with while they made love. Hands that held their children, bathed them and fed them till they were old enough to fly their own wings.…

The Space Between Living and Existing

To live, is to find meaning beyond existence freedom, is to overcome these waves of resistance.   I seek space, a vacuum to build my own identity, but each day I have to face the reality that misery loves company and mine receives too much dividends, profit in pain, depression and a life in constant recession.   I need space to dance with the devil death whispers in half deaf ears counting down the years to when the music stops and there are no heart beats no songs nor poems…

I: Solitude

We strive to devoid our lives of silence to avoid listening to our own thoughts ignorant to the fact that one can never be at peace without peace within. It is written “Blessed are those who do not fear solitude, who are not afraid of their own company, who are not always desperately looking for something to do, something to amuse themselves with, something to JUDGE. If you are never alone, you cannot know yourself. And if you do not know yourself, you will begin to fear the void. But…

Music from the heart

What would you do, if given the choice between constant beautiful music in your ears or the melodic sound of your heart beat? How do you know you’re alive? Is it the rhythm of your heart, that sound you’ve heard since you came on to this earth? or do you feel alive when your bones won’t keep still, your mind is lost in the poetry of the lyrics and your body is a slave to the rhythm of the music ringing in your ears? What do you want to dance…

Whispers from my Father

His figure is etched onto my retina, haunting my dreams as I close my eyes in the darkest corners with my fears he rests in peace the jailer to my demons, the warden of my mental prison the lighthouse that guides me to shore.   He whispers like sand devils to a lost desert wanderer a thousand words painting memories on canvas, tears falling down my cheeks as if to quench my thirst from the heat of this Hades I now reside. He has been gone so long I feel…

Will you kiss me?

When the moon hangs over the night sky and stars glitter its visage, will you sit next to me hold my hand as we listen to crickets chipping and try to discern planes from shooting stars.   Will you kiss me when the church bell rings and the priest blesses our union in front of God, friends and family.   Will you grab a hold of my hand as I lead you to the dance floor pull you close into my arms and sway along to thinking out loud.  …
