Dark Skies


Sometimes the simplest words speak louder,

And the flustered actions become clustered

And boxed into things we don’t understand.

The sky still bellows your name as I walk,

And I try to peel back its layers in hope




But I can’t.

There are times I try to lick the sky to

Seal the envelope, to drop you in the post,

To send you miles away to only,

Then, want you to





But I can’t.

I try to lift my fingers to rummage

Through the ‘paradise’ that sleeps above me,

to wake some sort of potion, for the inner demon

but it only




So I can’t.

You’re out


            you lost it when you found it,

You revived it when you buried it,

You are out.

You gave in the minute you declared it,

You planted it when you kicked it over,

You gave in when you stood up,

You’re out.

You are out.

True Freedom

Sometimes I look up and I wonder whether if the sky is in its true appearance. As humans, we aspire to touch the sky, but, we fail because we admire and pity ourselves.


True Freedom, where do you hide?

Lone Soul


My lonely soul, how lonely you shall grow!

Others shall try to seek to know, but, will only walk away.

Loneliness is contagious; it mutates the cells of the human body and causes sickness.

Your words fail to evoke any emotion.

Your dark camouflaged skin wriggles

With the snakes,

              Hissing and slithering over my brain,

           But, you mean nothing.

Jealousy, Jealousy, Jealousy…

The greatest enemy is jealousy. It stains the heart and curdles the blood, it does mankind no good.


Reclaim your happiness by not focusing on what others have. Reclaim your soul by not wishing bad upon those who may be blessed with gains that you do not have. Instead, pray and wish the best upon those who prosper and focus on the qualities of your life that shine forth.

Jealousy hardens the heart. It makes you susceptible to hate. Hatred causes the O Zone layer of humanity to rip. We are constantly prying on other’s lives, that we have forgotten our own.

How can you feel content and in harmony with life’s blessings when you are trying to point out somebody else’s flaws?

God, The Unfathomable Being!

‘Where is God?’ they grin with their salivating teeth,

where is God?


God is

the bird that chirps to another day of your existence,
the weather that changes without your permission,
the drops of honey into your palm,
the serenity of a sweet salaam.

The waves that lap over the shore,
the brushstrokes of large grown crops
that secrete the flesh of a corn,
the wavering element in the air of
nitrogen, oxygen and
