gravity

and I know that darkness,
drowns the sea,
with all it’s bitter memories.

despite the tears,
flowing like a stream,
you still choose to stay with me.

gravity,
you pull me endlessly,
encompass me,
grounds me.

your strength overpowers me,
a force that pulls the seas,
there’s no breaking free,
from your mighty gravity.

 

stuck

although my thoughts continue to swim,
sometimes they get stuck on their way out of the water. 

then the cycle begins again.

Open Prompt

hate

you stand there,
proud grin on your face,
as you watch them break down,
from the piercing stabs,
and rage-filled grabs,
because of the hate u give.

while,
the hate u gave,
unlocks the door,
for a world drenched,
in total, mind-numbing,
darkness.

then,
the living stops,
and the dead,
starts.

because what else can the world,
do when all it’s filled with,
is nothing but hate?

 

winter is ending

the snow falls no more,
the air is getting warmer,
the birds fly back now.

rain spills on the ground,
flowers rise in the new sun,
winter is ending.

rapunzel

like rapunzel,
women have magical,
mystical powers,
and can do,
all things.

women,
will need to be,
saved by,
nothing.

women,
will come to,
learn that,
sometimes our,
powers vanish,
and turn,
lifeless.

but they will,
understand that,
in the end,
all will be well.

and here is what I say, 

women,
aren’t fairy tales,
they aren’t fluff, filtered,
fugitives trapped within their,
powers.

women,
are ruthless & ravenous,
relentless.
