DAY 30: 30 Poems Later,

Posted on 0

30/4/2018

I knew not
how this would go,
I knew not
if I’d find the words,
Or if I’d even see this to the end,

Some days I swam
in an ocean of words,
Some days I walked through
a desert digging the dry earth
with my fingers looking
for words to write,

I’ve learnt how to listen
instead of worry,
I’ve learnt how to let my words
say what they want to say
instead of telling them
what they should say,

DAY 27: Dreams of Dew

Sometimes
My dreams feel like dew,
Abundant at dawn,
but only for so long,

I close my eyes and
they come to life,
Dancing wildly through
the rooms in my mind,

But as soon as the
sun begins to rise ,
They slowly evanesce
before my eyes,

If only they’d stay longer,
If only they’d stop opening
the door to doubt and
her cousin fear,

I wonder if God is
sitting somewhere,

DAY 26: Friends

Posted on 0

We gathered
around the flame
and stared deep
into her face,

She wrapped us
in her warmth and slowly
thawed the ice that
had caged our hearts,

From a distance,
We could hear the sound of our
long forgotten pulse joyfully
running back to us,

We all have fears,
We all have worries,
We all have nights where
we bathe in tears,

But watching that
candle swallow the darkness,

DAY 25: Darling Duke

My darling Duke
is five feet tall,
His shoulders are broad
and his lips are soft,

He buys me a diamond
each time I don’t call,
And thinks all I want is
money and clothes,

I try to tell him that what I want
is for his arms to hold me close
till my fears run through the door,

I try to tell him that what I want
is to touch those deep dark parts
that he hides inside his soul,
