Too Much

I need to hear you say ‘I love you’ I am excessively expressive I weaved my heart on my sleeve I care so much, I go out of touch *** I am too intense at my own expense Too assertive to be discursive I stand my ground , I am too profound Too smart to... Continue Reading →

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...

Gone Too Soon

Premature postponement Of a productive existence Wistful souls Waiting, wanting, wishing *** Old vitality and vigor, vanished Vexed by vintage memories Undoing unfairly unraveling at Unprecedented pace *** Darkness, doom and despair Dangling around in the air Night is closing in Life’s new phase begins *** ©yourdailyescape.blog

Inconspicuous CPA

Balancing accounts at the end of each day the applied dual concept haunted my nights *** Consistency principles ignored exacerbated the need for diversification at times, diverging assets to overseas entities that were kept under wraps *** Unapplied matching concepts, to account for the gaps of missed calls and mysterious outings, led to full argument... Continue Reading →

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...

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

Full Contact Sport

Would you like to come? Play the game with us? The admission price Is discomfort *** Do you promise it will be fun? Who else will be there? We better win or else I plan to be gone *** The goal is to keep playing There is risk of concussions, Pushing, punching And a lot... Continue Reading →

Surreal Painting

Bodies floating in the ethosphere Wrists cramped from swiping Entire universes crammed into a single paragraph Relationships sold at a wholesale price *** Filtered imperfections get Lost in perfectly manicured lives Vanity on steroids, invites Saddened powdered noses *** Disjointed connections spreading Like a disease rewiring our senses Replacing gestures for a screen Diluting bonds... Continue Reading →

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 →

Sculpture Garden

A flood of emotions Barricaded by what ifs Countless words Lodged in a gaping maw Drenched in spirits Go about resembling A garden of hardened hearts And lives postponed Counting the steps left To the gravestone ®yourdailyescape.blog

Zombie Land

I finally put her to rest After many failed attempts To fight back the virus that Spoiled our love *** Yet, she still wonders around Dancing between these lines Seizing any given chance To remind me it was not enough *** I buried her a long time ago But she keeps on coming back Feeding... 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 →
