rebel spirits for those to dare
to gaze upon our uncharted flight
till glory's all burnt and out of sight.*
love stories that burn and die,
bare threads rushing to their spool,
shattered words used as a tool.*
Sometimes even writers struggle to describe relationships, as they feel at loss for words that could depict the types and complexities of the bonds existing between the souls. Our tendency to label and categorize everything is what projects the idea of complexity.
Seen through the eyes of a 5 years old, any love story could have only two outcomes: a happy-ending or a sad one. There are no shades of grey. Those appear only later on, when we start to add one filter after the other to our lens, altering the original.
Throughout the years we discover a wide array of shades. More we learn about them, more we miss having the initial monochrome vision.
Here are some of my poems:
THE KITE RUNNER
YOU ARE NOT ALONE
ALL BOUT LOVE
A TALE OF A MINNOW AND A WHALE
LONG WAY DOWN 1
LONG WAY DOWN 2
THE CIRCLE OF LIFE
YOU KNOW IT ALL
CONFESSION OF A HUSBAND
THE RETURN OF A HERX
CLOSE THE DOORS
IT IS LOVE
A CHILD'S MIND
