Caracta: Emptiness? No
I hear a noise...a loud one
It pierces my ears
Shatters my heart
My grip is weak...my knees bow in fear

What is happening to me?
Please stop.
The noise...i hate it.
The sounds are terrifying.

Write if you want to
It's your pen and paper
Your time...your space.
I am not a writer.

she is not a writer
somebody lied
who engraved her name
on the walls of my heart?
This silence,
not for lack of words,
is the effect you have on me.
If you knew
this simple truth,
would you turn on me
an unfriendly back? sad

Acidosis: ******************************
Have you ever thought in your heart,
Have you ever wondered like me,
"Where am I going?"

Has it ever crossed your mind,
Has it fleeted through your consciousness,
The big question; "Where am I going?"

In your stuggles in life,
In your pursuits on earth,
Have you stopped and asked:
"Where am I going?"

It will do you good to ask
Your self
"Where am I going?"

The answer to this question,
The response to this heart-quest:
"Where am I going?"
May help you to know
That without a purpose
In your life

Your endless struggles
Of shadows
Will take you
Nowhere
shocked shocked shocked
never knew you can write
nice write up
oya write a valentine poem for me wink

I spy with my mind's eye
a path known only to the wise
clear to the simple
and obvious only to the cautious
trodden by voyagers
from all walks of life
tread on softly
on this path of poetry.

Unfriendly back?
Mortal man, you lie.
I come with open arms
The walls won't break

I push, i hit
But i can't get through
If only you knew how fast my heart beats
I want it broken...no more walls

Again the noise
How long will it last?
I hope i can bear it much longer.
Long enough to soar with broken wings

Night is my favorite part of life.
It is wear dreams and goals are conceived
Growing with every moment of the starlight.
Holding on to the oxygen of your dreams
Tonight I will dream and inspiration will be born in the morning.

I hope i can bear it much longer.
Long enough to soar with broken wings
what barrier trascends the human will?
If it be a wall of stone.
Let my words
a battering ram be.
If it be of finest steel,
I'd cut through with a diamond blade.
Together we'd walk,
no, not fly,
off into the sunset.

That noise,
into the past shall fade.
Replaced by the gentle beat
of two untroubled hearts.
My heart beats a tune,
songs of freedom.
My hand offered...
Can I have this dance?

@Oahray

Wake up from your slumber
The drink must be too strong
For you are hallucinating.
A dance? Hahahahahahaha

Let go of my hand
You cannot win me
Let go of my heart
You cannot own it

Let go of my mind
You cannot possess it
Let go of my body
You cannot adorn it

Oh that i may fly
Into the world beyond
And have a taste of immortality
Blended into pure love

This path
all too familiar.
Again with abandon so reckless
she unestimates
this valiant knight.

A battle for your heart?
All too easy.
A battle won before it starts.
When the snake charmer blows,
shall the snake not dance?

Caracta, fair caracta,
I speak not to you
but to your heart.
Shall not the alomo drunkard
obey the bottle's call?

Sweet blossoms belong not in Hades.
A better offer, I here present.
In my arms you can fly.
Above the soaring eagles...
To clouds of nine.

They are almost-n. aked
They say it is fashion
They wear spaghetti
Meant to be eaten
They say it is fashion
They wear bum-shorts (bomb shots)
Meant for boko-haram
They say it is fashion

Slit in the front
Slit at the back
Slit everywhere
On the skirt
They say it is fashion

The chests, the glory of mothers,
Are open as film in the cinema
They say it is fashion

They wear the hair of the dead
They say it is fashion
They wear the talons of birds
They say it is fashion
Their faces are turned
Into the artist's canvas
They say it is fashion

I think I will rather
Live and be without fashion
Than live a fake life

They say you are old school!

@Oahray

Such sweet words of confidence
Your lips must be laced with honey
And your eyes like sapphire
Lighting the edges of my dark heart

Do you have strong hands?
Strong enough to wield cupid's sword?
Can you run like a gazelle?
Can you make a rain?

Can you bend my waist in a dance?
What are you made of?
Fire, air, water or gold?
Pray tell me, valiant knight.

The baby cupid
never a match.
He hides behind a rock
when I come calling.
Stars of fire
the blaze in my eyes.
Tell me, what travels faster than light?

Take my hand and you shall know
every waist is bendable,
the tune of my heartbeat makes it so.
Take my hands of refined steel,
padded with layers of gentle care.
Take my hands fair Caracta
and know what love is!
