Orbiting


Orbiting

Stardust and constellations

It’s where I found myself

In a place of darkness

With the occasional specks of light

 

No gravity to hold me

And no path to follow

I stumbled blindly

Across planets of sorrow

 

My scarred surface

And my hardened core

Crashed against a sphere

A failed star floating alone

 

Loneliest of all planets

Drifting with no orbit

Its light was extinguished

By a meteor that abandoned it

 

Its magnetosphere held me captive

Pushing me against the craters

I was tethered like a hostage

To a sphere of dreadful silence

 

An escape was tempting

To reclaim my freedom

But I stayed hoping

Perhaps I’ll be its hero

All I Want

Give me something real…

Not that dreamy look
Nor the empty promises
With the occasional tenderness

Give me something sweet…

A taste of your soft lips
A touch from your callused hands
And a glance from your hazel eyes

Give me a feeling…

Not love… definitely not love
Not another cycle of manipulation
And the inevitable broken promises

Give me your truth…

The real essence of your soul
The stripped version of you
And your exposed unfiltered thoughts

Give me all of that
Give me all I want
And I’ll give you my all

Apavarga

I’ll inscribe myself upon you skintight
Like a meteor crashing against the moon
Whether it’s wrong, whether it’s right
I might never know…

A constellation circulating a black hole
I found my stars flickering slightly
To distance myself and to distance my soul
Was the hardest part…

Trapped in a space warp, I saw a new galaxy
Rewired myself, reprogrammed my beliefs
As a rebirth of my soul filled the vacancy
I saw a potential within me…

I drift further towards the blurred boundaries
As stardust wraps itself around me
Love flourishes against my exposed fragilities
And fills them with beauty…

I’m grateful for that fate
Along which I’ve found my Shams
Soaring towards an open gate
I feel an ethereal energy liberating me…

His Hell… My Bliss


His Hell... My Bliss

My flesh is thin glass
Easily breakable…

The only arms I wanted were his
And I thought I knew
What love truly is
Until I met you

So drag me into your hell
I’m already caught in the flames
Turn me into your fire
Before I turn into ashes

My flesh melts away
And my skin cracks open
You reside inside of me
Burning… scorching me

I melt into a bliss
As the coldness dissipates
My cells adapt to the heat
Until they burst…
