The Truth about Love

Close your eyes

if your heart so desires,

the surrounding forest

does not disappear.

The trees stand tall.

The grass still grows lush.

Animals make a home

and the birds a nest.

If I close my eyes,

the forest remains;

it lives.

As does this forest of love

I keep hidden

within the parts of me,

where light has no reason to travel.

It grows still, for the ways of nature,

life and the sun,

though easily perceived,

are seldom accepted.

The Lilac Sky

‘The Lilac Sky’

I seek the path that

takes me through

the lilac sky

framed in rose coloured glass,

to the road beyond

the limits of the eternal sun.

I seek the universe within you,

that something, which

you seek in me;

the light catching fire

in your eyes

and the dance of a smile

on my lips.

Who?

Who is the sea and who am I,

I do not know.

I just know how to flow like the waves,

to and fro.

I flow without question,

I flow without hinderance.

I am destruction.

I am absolution.

I am the cradle of life.

I am a cemetery.

The giver of life

and home to death.

I am. I am. I am

I am beyond thought.

Where comprehension ends,

I begin.

Man of Glass (ii)

kiss

he had no answer
for her question.
no, he had none.
“I’ve come to save you,”
she smiled,
a very wide smile,
indicating what she
was about say
should have been
common sense –
obvious.
still, he stood quiet
and numb.
“would you rather I walk
and leave you to suffer –
this ceaseless ache?”
string – she finally
stuck a cord.
ignoring the pain
in a deep husky
note he spoke,
“but, how?
how can you save me?
i am a man made glass
pain is not separate from me
this ache is who I am.
I have been boiled and bubbled,
cooled and simmered,
I was a molten liquid once,
molded into this mortal state.
having been
torched and toiled,
I have survived
for as long as I can –
not because I am weak.
no, you have to understand
i’d rather be pierced
a million times – and again
salvation is not what I seek.”

Happy New Year

Romancing Life

Hello Everybody,

Let me start by wishing everybody a very Happy New Year! The past year has been bittersweet, as most years are. Instead of the negatives, I chose to highlight the positives. I am so blessed to have re-discovered my love for writing under the oddest of circumstances. I am thankful for the wonderful connections and friends I have made through the pursuit of craft of writing. I am very excited to explore new terrains in the new year, to go on new adventures. I hope that adventure finds you too.

Moreover, I hope the New Year brings you all an abundance of happiness and joy! Now in an ideal world, I’d leave it at that, but for a fact we do not live in an ideal world. There will be happy times and there will be hard times that you will probably face in the upcoming year. So, I wish you all much strength and perseverance in times of adversity.Time is all but fleeting, so enjoy each and every day, cherish every moment, smile while you can!

Here’s the New Year! Cheers!

Love Always,

Rose
