Wrong Turn

If I knew then What I know now, Would I have taken You anyhow? *** Excited to find A place to belong It didn’t occur to me It could be wrong *** Focused on giving I forgot about living Collecting your crumbs My heart grew numb *** Gathering the pieces Of what’s left I doubt... Continue Reading →

Just Another Ordinary Day

Sweet overnight breath Serves as a wake-up alarm Make way for me In the bathroom line Today I am number one *** Turning to the mirror I exclaim What is a frog doing on the other side? Holy cow! That’s my sleepy face… Then I apply yogurt and pepper to Clear the puffiness from my... Continue Reading →

Broken

Ancient demons Crawled from deep inside Brough small innovations With Godlike powers implied *** Classified and measured Essences ceased to be treasured Instead controlled and explained Causing each other so much pain *** Forgotten was the ancient art Of not tearing each other apart Accepting feelings could be mixed And people aren’t things to be...

Beautiful Cypher

Green shows fear or Quiet despair That turns light blue When love is in the air *** Anger turns them Dark blue all the way Overwhelming sadness Turns those eyes gray *** ©yourdailyescape.blog

Star Dust

The power of the sun Shining from within A thousand galaxies Rolling on a spin *** Nurture and nature Trapped in between Play with the infinity Of probability *** Thoughts infused Get often amused By the tender Outcome of surrender

Rose Colored Glasses

Was she always this dull? Why did I worship her soul? She drops them without blinking What the hell was I thinking? *** I fancied the way she talked about poetry and folks every day felt like dreaming while all along she was scheming *** Looking back with clearer sight Without the glasses, I see...

Finally at Home

A voyage leading to unexpected places is what I set out to find I believed my heading was clear until your path crossed mine *** Resting in my glacial palace feeling proud of the battles I won I didn’t suspect you to be a great adventure that would blow my mind *** There is something...

Dreaming Again

Quiet defiance appeared in place of woven elaborate tales *** Your bravest endeavor, being boldly authentic consistently transparent innocently curious *** You shone a light on my blind spots I felt human again after an eternity of solitude *** A new adventure ignited by uncharted experiences and renewed hope of wonder and joy ©yourdailyescape.blog

Highway to Hell

Unseen, unloved, drown out Walking a fine line Life and death reduced To meaningless tags *** Darkness inviting With a warm embrace Dimming the light Muffling the pain *** The suddenly stale Taste of reality A pit in the stomach Starved of connection *** Serial meaningless exchanges Through roads paved with hate From vehicles crossing... Continue Reading →

Pandemic

Humble beginnings Imperceptible tremors Slowly shaping Shifting *** First it captured their sight Then it took over their hands They sat for longer Unable to stand *** Mutated strains adapted Found in small pockets Over time Taking over the mind *** Disconnection from reality Inability to recognize loved ones Overflowing anxiety, panic attacks Low self-esteem,... Continue Reading →

Gallant Knight

You showed up at my door step Singing sweet songs about love Making charming appearances, Intentionally departing after dawn *** Confidently distant Consistently inconsistent Mostly unavailable Almost unattainable Displaying your merits Through honorable labors *** Coming and going in cycles Like the moon rising at night Your temper seemed secure Like that of a gallant... Continue Reading →

How Would You Know?

Love prepares homemade meals Without you having to ask Love works around your quirks Even making bad days feel alright *** Love feels easy and safe Because someone is stretching Beyond their known universe To accept you the way you are *** Love asks, have you eaten? What’s going on in your life? And listens... Continue Reading →

Going Out of Business

I am proud to announce That despite trying really hard To keep on competing This business is falling apart *** It comes a point in everyone’s journey To stop playing pretend Start valuing your time And decisively put an end *** When all the hard work only yields Lots of broken pieces to repair One... Continue Reading →

Not Much Longer

Each minute that we spend apart Feels like an eternity For my smitten heart *** I long for looking Deep into your eyes For feeling your skin Pressed against mine *** Why does time deceit Lovers Making our time together Feel delightful but so brief

New World

Being with you feels like Stepping on firm ground For the first time My heart is filled with joy Even when we are apart Your kind soul has ignited A fire within my heart No one before nourished my thoughts With sweet talks of summertime Each minute I long for that moment When once again,... Continue Reading →

Nautical Lifestyle

A sea of desire washing up on the shore Coming and going like waves Dreams polluted by discarded feelings Form toxic debris and plastic promises **** Scarcity, cravings, fear, demands Suspended without a heading Temporarily picked up with intent Attach to the living to find some sense **** Forever drifting farther away From the source... Continue Reading →

Rings of Power

The myth spoke Of a realm hidden Between two worlds Invisible to the naked eye *** Where humanity was Granted the ability To change their fate Through rings of power *** The brave souls who Protected the secrets Perished For a while Certainty became Only a legend Life carried on *** Remnants of the sacred... Continue Reading →

Insatiable Void

I wanted to know that you care I wanted the sun to shine everyday I wanted life to come easy I wanted pain to never come visit *** All that I thought I wanted Crushed suddenly into a void Impossible to fill in As I can’t feel any joy *** All I want now is... Continue Reading →

Time Travelers

Time travelers passing through Decisively rushing nowhere Grasping hopelessly for meaning Suspended in existence by belief *** Another face fills that empty space  Hiding from the truth Behind new endeavors The mind is a scary place to be When the heart is not ready to see *** Assumed deficiencies Pouring from within Spill into exasperation... Continue Reading →

Junkie

Hooked on the thrills of this and that Hooked on the promise of Better, bigger, sweeter I succumbed to the riddles *** The never-ending questions Why, when, where, who, what? Addicted to giving my power away It was time to take it back *** A soft but familiar voice whispered You are the answer Now... Continue Reading →
