Honey

i will not dip my words in honey 

for you 

sugar coating 

my eye rolls at your bigotry. 

No. 

I will not play party

as your cruelty takes center stage. 

I will not eat my silence when 

i will hold you accountable 

to your heralded promises to me. 

I for damn sure 

will not plead the 5th

relegating my freedom to those hands 

dipped in blood. 

I am worth more than 

these pendulum swings

W-`ounds

In the simplest of moments
and stillness of many a starry nights
old wounds reopen
standing in between our here and there
between our trauma and rebirth
between never ending death and life

LighT

for how long will you strike your home,

feeling as the darkness spill onto this carpet.

You’ve cursed yourself at the behest of this darkness,

 this atrocious thing you insist on carrying,

that you forgot the call of Light you carry

Did it make your being bloom and glow at this insistent strike

Do you not feel its sheer terror at your breathing Light?

Hold on….

D-ar-k-Ne-ss

you’ve pierced yourself till you bleed, 

willing the darkness out of you, 

till all you had was the light you so desperately sought.

You’ve let your soul stay imprisoned in this place for so long 

Tell me did you find pleasure, 

so why cling to it? 

do you not know the darkness sits afraid of you

Ma-r-K

I am a cantankerous cacophony of trips and falls

Resets, upgrades and crashes;

A medley of wordless sounds

piercing the mass of the universe.

I am making my mark,

Creating music and art from the indelicacies of life.

I have to.

My life

My sanity depends on it.
